These unique and dedicated breweries have established themselves as absolute powerhouses, dreaming up rich stouts, crisp lagers, and full-flavored ales that stack up well against any other beers.

For a drink and a family-friendly bite in downtown Glens Falls, you have two excellent choices. Davidson Brothers Brewing Company is serving up sizable burgers and sandwiches, and Cooper’s Cave Ale Company boasts a full menu plus homemade ice cream. Mean Max Brew Works is a farm brewery in Glens Falls that allows you to bring your own food to the taproom, so you can chow down on tacos while sipping a Tahawus IPA. If your family vacation doesn’t allow for a beer tasting, ask your server at local restaurants what’s on tap. You might find a Lake George Area beer on the menu. And if you want to really immerse yourself in the craft beverage scene, check out the local distilleries, wineries, or the Hoppy Trails Brew Bus.
