Best New Way to See the Breweries 2014: The Little Beer Bus


The Little Beer Bus

New Windsor

The creation of Tania Dougherty, the same person who brought us the Little Wine Bus, the Little Beer Bus tours include a “bus” that could be a town car for two, luxury SUV for a small group, or a coach for a corporate outing. The best perk: You’ve got a designated driver. It’s not hop-on-and-off, the bus is a private tour, and will pick you up anywhere in the region, including New York City.

Routes criss-cross the Valley from the Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in Westchester to Keegan Ales in Ulster. Visits to hops farms and distilleries are also on the trail. Typically, riders do five to six tastings at each brewery. The brewmasters also spend time with guests, teaching them about hops, grains, and mash. Look forward to relaxation time in the beer garden as you sit back with a pint of your favorite brew. Tours start at 11 a.m. and end around 6 p.m. 917-414-7947;
