* Directions are usually the best effort we could come up with using Mapquest from the hike (or near by) to the Brewpub.  If you are not sure about something, look at the web sites for the various hikes or Brewpubs.

If you can't find the exact hike we mention, or you're not up for the hike we list, that's ok!  Just go for a walk of at least 1 mile.  Then when you've worked up a good thirst, go and enjoy a great beer!   One of the hikes is usually around 1-3 miles and more or less flat.  The other hike is usually 3-8 miles and may have some altitude gain.   Do whichever one you're more comfortable with.  It also helps to call ahead to see if the Pub (and sometimes the park!) is open when you want to go there.

Thanks to Lew Bryson for his book New York Breweries.  Our web page is based on his book's list of brew pubs.  Lew also lists several other breweries that are available for tours, and may offer beer for purchase.  If you are a New York State beer lover, check out his webpage or his book!

If you want to send us a few pictures of your hikes, or brewpubs you've visited, that would be great too!

As of this writing, there are 83 known brewpubs in New York! If you discover a new Brewpub (a place that brews their own beer on premises and serves food) that we haven't listed yet, or you discover that one has gone out of business, or if you have any other questions,
