The Lake George Area’s craft beverage scene is on the rise. From refreshing craft beers to exceptional local wines to up-and-coming distilleries, every taste is covered in the Lake George Area. Try something local when you’re wetting your whistle.

The Lake George Area has a growing collection of craft breweries, wineries, and distilleries that have been making thirsty visitors happy for years. These establishments create unique and varied beverages with pride and expertise. For a taste of the hoppy side of the Adirondacks, try a beer from one of the four craft breweries between Glens Falls and Lake George Village. Several of these breweries are not only pouring a great beer but serving delicious food in family friendly restaurants. If your beverage of choice is a glass (or bottle) of wine, head to our local winery for a mid-afternoon wine tasting. You’re going to love what you taste so be prepared to bring a bottle or two home with you. If you’re looking for something a little harder, a liquor tasting at an Adirondack distillery is the perfect place to spend your evening. Want to hit every single spot or experience one of our unique beverage trails? Contact the folks at Hoppy Trails and leave the driving to someone else.

You’re on vacation, so let loose and enjoy a drink.
