Recently we visited family in Vermont, and took the opportunity to check out some of the breweries along the way. Our surprise stop of the day was Stone Corral Brewery in Richmond, VT. Luckily, we had enough time to sit down and talk to the folks behind the bar while enjoying a fantastic selection of unique and diverse beers. Continue reading

The FarmHouse Brewery, Owego, NY

I’ve said this before, and will probably say it again, but the annual craft beer fest, TAP NY, is a great way to discover breweries across New York State that are producing unique and delicious beverages. One brewery that stands out to me year after year is The FarmHouse Brewery, located in Owego, NY. I finally had time to visit them and spent an afternoon trying their incredibly diverse lineup of beers. Continue reading

Endless Brewing, Montrose, PA

Finding smaller breweries off the beaten path is one of the driving forces behind the Liquid Alchemy blog. While looking for new places to visit, we discovered Endless Brewing in Montrose, PA, just thirty minutes south of Binghamton, NY. After a short drive through a picturesque area of Pennsylvania, we soon arrived at the brewery, ready to taste and learn about the many beers that Endless Brewing produces. Continue reading

Bluestone Brewing Company, South Waverly, PA

While on a recent trip to the Southern Tier region of New York, we made a small hop over the state line to check out one of the area’s newest breweries, Bluestone Brewing Company. Having been open for almost a year at the time of our visit, we wanted to see what kind of interesting concoctions Bluestone was brewing for its customers. Continue reading

The Brewery of Broken Dreams, Hammondsport, NY

I’ll admit that I am a bit obsessed with loons. Every summer, on our Adirondack camping trip, I enjoy spending hours on the water just observing these majestic birds and listening to their calls. You can imagine my excitement when I saw a brewery logo that incorporated a crying loon at Tap NY two years ago! It turns out that the brewery, The Brewery of Broken Dreams, was located within driving distance from home, at the southern tip of Keuka Lake. We made sure to visit them on our trek around the lake so that we could try their wide selection of beers and learn a bit more about the brewery and the story behind the teary-eyed loon.

Keuka Brewing Company, Hammondsport, NY

There is no shortage of places that offer delicious craft beverages in a casual, friendly setting around Keuka Lake. One such locale, Keuka Brewing Company, the first brewery to open on the lake back in 2008, made for an excellent stop on our tour through the area. We had a pleasant conversation with co-owner, Rich Musso, about the business and the diverse selection of beer they have been producing for the past few years, while sampling some of their current offerings. Continue reading

Roscoe Beer Company, Roscoe, NY

Usually when making a return visit to a site I’ve written about for Liquid Alchemy, a short addendum to the current post is all that is needed. However, in the two and a half years since I was last at Roscoe Beer Company, enough has changed to warrant writing an entirely new article. I was pleasantly surprised and excited by the work that has gone on at the brewery to improve its image and the caliber of beer that is being released. Continue reading
