#87. Syracuse

Nicknamed “The ‘Cuse,” Syracuse is best known as home to the University of Syracuse. Top employers are in the education and service sectors, and residents have the option of 25 different neighborhoods in which to live. A good entertainment and nightclub scene is in place, and a half-dozen microbreweries have started in recent years. They include Middle Ages Brewing Co., which offers brands like Boxing Day Bitter and Kilt Tilter, an aptly-named Scotch Ale that is our choice for Syracuse.
