Soak In Some Stunning Views Of The Finger Lakes From This New York Brewery
The Finger Lakes are known for being the heart of wine country in the Northeast, so much so that exploring entire wine trails is a hugely popular activity in this gorgeous region. But if enjoying a Saturday afternoon at a local brewhouse is more up your alley, this area is also packed with a number of fantastic breweries experimenting with all kinds of flavors unique to the Finger Lakes. One of them is Grist Iron Brewing Company, a great local spot with incredible views of Seneca Lake.
Make a trip up to Hector, NY, and you'll find this local microbrewery amid some of the prettiest scenery in the Finger Lakes.
Grist Iron Brewing Company, which was founded in 2015, innovates with all kinds of unique craft brews in the traditional American style.
Make Grist Iron one of a few different stops along your tour, because there are over 30 wineries, breweries, distilleries, and restaurants within 10 miles of the brewery.
Once you've enjoyed some of their popular beers on tap at the brewery, remember to bring home a pack or two of Grist Iron's delicious craft beers.
From their Bruiser Black and Blueberry Porter to their Lake Life IPA, you won't run out of great flavors on tap to choose from.
You've probably never spent the day at a brewery that has its own lodge. Book one of nine renovated rooms at the local lodge and wake up to a complimentary breakfast and dreamy views of Seneca Lake. Larger groups can even rent a restored farmhouse on the property.
They've also got a menu full of mouth-watering brew food. Try one of their classic pizzas, grinders, or nacho plates.
If you're looking for a brewery ideal for enjoying an afternoon on Seneca Lake, this might be your new favorite spot!
