Locally Grown Beer

June 22, 2011

Catching up on my Google news alerts, I came across this one from May…

The Union Square Greenmarket in NYC has started selling its first locally grown beer!  Tundra Brewery in Stamford NY (somewhere between Oneonta and Albany) grows its own barley and hops and flavors its ale with the farm’s own maple syrup.

I’m not sure if Tundra Brewery is available to visit, but so far it can be bought at certain NYC farmers’ markets and ‘Wichcraft Sandwich shops in NYC.  I hope they open near where they live soon so us upstaters can try a product that comes from our own backyard!
