Canandaigua Lake: Young Lion Brewing
Like many craft breweries, Young Lion Brewing started as a passion project among friends. Now, it’s an impressive brewery located at the north end of Canandaigua Lake. Visit their taproom to enjoy some of their newest creations!

Keuka Lake: Abandon Brewery
Located in a reconditioned barn that dates back to the 1800’s, Abandon Brewing Company features a great selection of beer in a unique setting. This eco-friendly brewery uses geothermal energy to heat the brewing and fermentation area of the brewery and solar power to provide lighting to one of the buildings.

Seneca Lake: Climbing Bines Hop Farm and Wagner Valley Brewing Company
Okay, we’ll admit it: we couldn’t choose between these two fantastic breweries. Climbing Bines Hop Farm specializes in small-batch, hand-crafted ale and is known for using hopes and barley that is harvested just down the road. Wagner Valley Brewing Company was the first craft brewery on Seneca Lake and features a wide variety of brews. No matter your taste, you’ll find something delicious at Wagner Brewing!

Cayuga Lake: Boathouse Beer Garden & Brewing Company
The Boathouse Beer Garden & Brewing Company celebrates the beauty of the Finger Lakes region and the artistry of the local craftsmen. Enjoy a view of Cayuga Lake or admire the locally crafted boats burnished by the Finger Lakes Boat Museum that are on display.
