Dutchess Craft Beverage Trail

(Thank you to Dutchess Tourism and the below craft beverage sites for hosting NY Foodie Family.  As always, all opinions are our own.)

The craft beverage industry has seen expansive growth over the past several years.  The Hudson Valley is home to many breweries, wineries and distilleries, with more opening over time.  A large number of Hudson Valley’s craft beverages can be found in Dutchess County.  So many, in fact, that they’ve created their own craft beverage trail.  The Dutchess Craft Beverage Trail currently has 20 “stops” with more continuing to be added.  My husband and I have visited several of the breweries, wineries and distilleries that make up the Dutchess Craft Beverage Trail.  I could merely provide you with a list of all the places that we visited.  Below, you will find a list of those stops.  I have provided the important details like location, hours and website links.  However, during our stops, we chatted with owners, managers and employees.  Each of the places we visited has its own story that really should be told.  Over the next several weeks, I will be linking to the unique stories that NY Foodie Family is thrilled to share.  We haven’t yet been able to visit all the stops on the Dutchess Craft Beverage Trail.  But if we haven’t visited it yet, you can be sure it’s on our list to check out soon!
