New York State’s 3rd Best Craft Beer is in Strykersville, New York
There was a time in 2013, my friends and I would go on 'Brewery Tours'. We would get a limo or a bus and go from brewery to brewery across Western New York. At the time though, we had MAYBE a dozen on the list. This was before the massive brewery boom in Western New York. I mean, the New York Beer Project was not around yet, Resurgence Brewing was just getting started and Flying Bison was using space in a warehouse on Ontario Street in Buffalo to make and sell their brews.
Now, you can find breweries EVERYWHERE. Whether it be done for a hobby or just a low-key business endeavor for some, the popularity in Western New York has really just taken off and there are some REALLY good beers being made in the area.
One of those beers, in fact, has just been named the 3rd best craft beer in all of New York State. Windy Brew over on Big Tree Road in Strykersville has won the bronze medal in The 2022 New York State Craft Beer Competition for their brew 'Lost At Sea', which will hit you with a cool 10.5& ABV.
Plus, Windy Brew offers a really cool experience and they are the only one in Western New York to do this. They are Western New York's first custom beer center: While working with our brewer you will go through the steps of brewing your own beer. Experience home brewing without the purchase of equipment and supplies!
