Check out three amazing breweries near Ithaca!

Explore the Eastern Finger Lakes region, as we see what farm breweries are all about. If you love craft beverages then you will love tasting all the offerings on this tour!

The brewers here are very passionate about what they do and love to share their knowledge with interested patrons. For those interested, I can set up a tour with one (or all) of the brewmasters to explain their process and tell their stories. Each brewery has its own style and is only the same in being unique.

There are snack food options (usually locally sourced) available at each brewery and some offer food right on site. If not, there are plenty of great food options along the way. Each brewery has wine and/or cider options for the non-beer drinkers as well.

You may customize your itinerary based on your interests and preferred beers.


After being picked up, we will spend the day touring part of the Finger Lakes Beer Trail. We'll head to three cool, happening breweries, maybe four if we have the time! The tour will start with a brewery in downtown Ithaca and continue out to the beautiful rural New York.

From the last brewery back to Ithaca, we will take the scenic route that takes you down the east side of Cayuga Lake (one of the Finger Lakes). There will be a photo opportunity at the south end of the lake as we take a stop at Stewart Park before dropping you back off.
