Obviously we have a dense amount of breweries in our state. Here is how you can try many of them rather cheaply.

Craft Beer is a craze all across the US but I know many many people who love craft styles. Even if your just a casual drinker of beer I would guess there is one style or more of non traditional beer that appeals to you. Many of us get into the craft beer scene at least locally via Sam Adams or Saranac. But let us not forget NY has a lot of craft beer selections.

Even bringing the microscope down we have many a brewery just in the capital region alone. I would first like to take a moment to give some props to Google Maps and Brew York and also Thrillest as well for this lovely map we see above. Now onto some local brewers..
