ADK Craft Beverage Trail
A craft beverage movement is taking the nation by storm and if you are in the Glens Falls Region and enjoy great beer, wine, cider and other distilled spirits, you're in luck! There are more than a dozen craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries in the area that are worth visiting, and some are even attached to restaurants.
To help quench your thirst, the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce developed the Adirondack Craft Beverage Trail that features 14 different stops. The trail is broken up into a North Route and a South Route so that it can be enjoyed in manageable pieces instead of all at once. You'll wind through Lake George, Corinth, Fort Ann, Glens Falls, Queensbury, Greenwich, Valley Falls, and more on your quest to enjoy all the craft beers, wines, ciders, and spirits that the region has to offer.
