Did you know that New York ranks as the sixth largest beer producing state in the nation? Nearly 30% of all the state's breweries are found in the Finger Lakes Region - where they enjoy access to abundant fresh water, locally grown hops, malted barley and other fresh ingredients. Seneca County is home to a variety of award-winning microbreweries and many of the area's pubs and taverns carry the local products on tap.
The Finger Lakes Region is also the core of New York State's apple country - and Seneca County is helping showcase the local cider renaissance. Local cideries feature the work of some of the region's finest artisan cider makers and local farm-based orchards. Visitors can sample flights, draft pours and bottles along with a growing combination of food and merchandise.
Spirits are another local specialty, as Seneca County offers some of the most noteworthy distilleries around. Myer Farm Distillers is among the largest and oldest organic farms in the country. They opened one of the first distilleries on record in Seneca County. Montezuma's Hidden Marsh Distillery is a pioneer in the field of artisan distilling in New York State. Together, these unique and quality products are sure to offer something for everyone on your next craft beverage tour of the Finger Lakes.
