WIN A BEER-LOVER’S GETAWAY
IN THE BREATHTAKING FINGER LAKES
HAMMONDSPORT, NY – According to the Craft Brewer’s Association, there are 208 Craft Breweries in New York State (over 85 of them are found along the Finger Lakes Beer Trail) which translated into an Economic Impact of $2,921 Million in 2014, ranking NY 4th highest in the entire country. And while those numbers are impressive, if you love craft beer you get that the buzz is all about having a variety of flavors and styles from which to choose. It’s about great taste. It’s also about the overall experience which is why the brewers in Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes are not only working hard to craft some of the best brews in New York State, they are also collaborating with a wide range of partners to create unique and exceptional experiences. And now is your chance to take advantage of one of those collaborations and Win a Craft Beer Getaway to Finger Lakes Beer Country.
With their front doors only a few hundred feet apart, Black Sheep Inn and Spa (recognized as one of “the best New York State B&B’s” by The Virgin Atlantic Blog) and The Brewery of Broken Dreams are teaming up to offer guests a special beer-centric getaway package which includes elegant overnight accommodations in an historic octagonal B&B, a mouthwatering local beer-themed Finger Lakes Farm-to-Table breakfast, a behind-the-scenes Brewery Tour at The Brewery of Broken Dreams, complimentary Finger Lakes Beer Trail map and a Finger Lakes Beer Trail Passport featuring hundreds of dollars in special offers from Beer Trail partners, plus one of the Inn’s signature, stainless steel, insulated 64 ounce growlers, and more.
The package is available to purchase exclusively on escapemaker.com, but during the months of June and July you can enter the Craft Your Adventure contest on Facebook for a chance to win this special beer-lover’s getaway in “America’s Coolest Small Town.”
In addition to enjoying tasteful accommodations and scrumptious farm-to-table breakfasts at Black Sheep Inn and Spa, and excellent brews at The Brewery of Broken Dreams, you are also just minutes away from some of New York State’s best craft breweries, as evidenced by awards won at TAP NY (NYS’s largest craft beer competition).
Steuben Brewing Company, for example, recently won the 2016 John Calen Memorial Award for Best Brown Ale in New York State at TAP NY and a Silver Medal for Best Light Lager in New York State, while Keuka Brewing won Bronze for Best Stout in New York State. In 2015, Finger Lakes Beer Company won a Silver Medal for Best Craft Beer for their porter, and in 2014 Keuka Brewing was named Best Craft Brewery in New York State.
Of course, those great brews are only part of the reason Beene Keene, Managing Editor of Beer Advocate Magazine, recommends the Finger Lakes for a Beer Getaway.
