In the 1880s, New York State produced 80 percent of the nation’s hops and most of them were grown in Madison County and the surrounding area. Prohibition (and a few other factors) put an end to that. That’s our proud history. And we’re now experiencing a new beginning at the forefront of the craft beverage movement.
Craft beer, wine, cider and spirits – Madison County has them all. We’re home to Good Nature Farm Brewery, one of the state’s first farm breweries! You'll also need to check out Meier's Creek Brewing Company. Looking for local breweries on a micro or nano scale? Then look no further than Erie Canal Brewing Co. and Foothill Hops Farm Brewery and Brew Shop.
Round out your craft beverage experience with a tasting of hard cider at Critz Farms Brewing and Cider Co., “Betty’s White” wine at Owera Vineyards, Applejack brandy at Old Home Distillers or Stone Quarry Vodka at Madison County Distillery.
Are you hungry? Then fill up at any one of our top restaurants with beer on tap, including the farm-to-table brewery restaurant at Good Nature Farm Brewery.
