There are over 70 craft breweries found in the Finger Lakes, each creating their own unique twist on your favorite ales, lagers, stouts and IPAs.
Ithaca Beer Company is brewing up world class beer, like their Flower Power IPA, well-loved Apricot Wheat or Brew York Pale Ale, brewed with 100% NYS Hops in support of New York agriculture. Prison City Pub & Brewery grabs attention for their experimental beers, such as their Puff Puff Shiv, made with 50 boxes of Cocoa Puffs cereal. And we're lucky to be home to the Genesee Brewing Company, one of the largest and oldest continually operating breweries in the United States. It's hard to find someone that doesn't recognize their line of beers - the iconic Genesee, the refreshing Genny Light, and The Original Cream Ale.
From outdoor beer gardens to trendy taprooms, the region's breweries offer beautiful views and relaxed atmospheres. Settle in for a friendly conversation with locals or competitive lawn games in the summer. No matter your style, you will find the perfect pint in the Finger Lakes!
