Think & Drink Local With the Adirondack Craft Beverage Trail
Calling all craft beverage enthusiasts! The Adirondack Craft Beverage Trail features craft beverage producers in the Southern Adirondacks and northern Capital Region. Discover local and delicious beers, wines, and spirits you'll love while supporting small businesses at the same time.
This epic trail was created in 2014 and is a program of the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce. The trail is the result of a collaboration between the craft beverage makers, the ARCC, tourism departments, tour operators, and more.
You'll wind through Lake George, Corinth, Fort Ann, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Greenwich, Granville, and more on your quest to enjoy all the craft beers, wines, ciders, and spirits that the region has to offer. Please remember to drink responsibly!
