New York Breweries In The Top-50
Let's celebrate with a drink.
The Brewers Association has released their list of the top-50 craft breweries in America. The biggest upset is Boston Beer Co., falling to No. 2, being beaten out by D.G. Yuengling and Son.
The New York breweries that made the list were Duval Moortgat USA in Cooperstown (and K.C.) at 12, Matt Brewing Co. (Saranac) in Utica at 14 and Southern Tier Brewing Co. in Lakewood at 35. A personal favorite of mine, Rogue in Oregon, made No. 32. You can check out all the breweries and their rankings at Vinepair.
You could plan an intricate road trip to give these breweries a try, or you could just head over the the Saratoga Brewfest at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 13. We'll have over 200 beers from over 75 American craft breweries, including Saranac, Southern Tier Brewing and Rogue.
