The craft beverage industry in New York State is booming. There are several reasons for the growth in this industry including an interest in locally produced foods and beverages, an increased interest in craft beverages and an improved legal climate for craft beverage businesses in New York State.
As part of the 2018 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference, Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension will host two field trips on Wednesday, March 28th. People will chose between a Brewery or Cidery field trip. The field trips are open to the public.
This year’s brewery field trip will visit Fleur de Lis Beer Works. Fleur de Lis will be brewing a batch of beer while we’re there so participants will have the opportunity to observe and ask questions about the beer-making process.
The Cidery Field Trip will visit Red Jacket Orchards juice pressing operations and tree nursery as well as a local cidery (TBD).
Space is limited for the field trips, so register early. Registration for a field trip costs $20 and includes light refreshments.
