Breweries & Craft Beer

Craft beer connoisseurs will enjoy the diversity and quality of the emerging Finger Lakes craft beer scene that is rapidly evolving into one of the most popular reasons to visit the Finger Lakes.  More than 75 family-owned craft, farm, and microbreweries welcome beer enthusiasts to their tasting rooms and brew pubs in the Finger Lakes region, with over a dozen located in Ontario County.  Look out for breweries with a NYS Farm Brewery designation which means that 60% of their hops and other local ingredients have been grown in New York State.
