Craft Breweries

The Finger Lakes have long been known for their grape-growing and wine industry, and some regional breweries have quietly prospered, but in just the past decade this once nascent industry has blossomed into its own sizeable collection of innovative, award-winning breweries. Over the past several years established wineries like Wagner Vineyards and Three Brothers Wineries & Estates both have invested in substantial brewing hardware and brew and bottle their tasty suds right on site, while other excellent wineries like Miles Wine Cellars and Rock Stream Vineyards, among others, work closely with dedicated nearby breweries to carefully craft and bottle their custom brews on their behalf. 

With over 130 breweries in the Finger Lakes Region, many nestled in Schuyler County and its neighboring counties, Two Goats Brewing, Lucky Hare Brewing Company, Scale House Brewery, and Seneca Lake Brewing Company, and Grist Iron Brewing are only some of the terrific producers we currently enjoy in our region.
