Everyone knows the tremendous Finger Lakes wineries but the region is a growing hot spot for beer lovers as well!
Microbreweries for Every Taste
Beer, just like wine, is a very diverse beverage with a number of different styles. Microbreweries each have their own specialty, and with so many options you are sure to find a beer that suites you in this region. Many microbreweries even source New York State hops, grains, and malts for production of the finest brews. Microbreweries usually offer tastings to help you get a feel for what you will like before ordering a pint or a growler.
Cooking with Beer, Food Pairings and More
Beer lovers and wine lovers are more similar than you think! Like wine, it is important to pair your beer with a meal. Any brewery in the Finger Lakes would be happy to tell you some basics, but there are also a growing number places offering more formal education sessions. For example, the New York Wine & Culinary Center is a great place to learn about beer, wine and any number of other culinary topics.
