Craft Beverages


Hudson Valley Craft Beverages

From the twisted vines growing on solitary hills, grapes are picked to transform into wine.  Meanwhile, in the basement of a historic factory building, hops and malt turn to beer in huge tanks.

That’s DutchCraft.

For decades, beverage makers in Dutchess County, Hudson Valley, NY have taken a locally-focused, earth-to-bottle approach to their craft. Award-winning wines, beers, and spirits are a testament to their success.

It may be the Dutchess County climate, perfect for growing hardy grapes and hops. Or the creative spirit of our beverage makers, forging new ideas. Certainly, the growing locavore movement encourages locally-made food and drink.

What this all boils down to—in copper kettles, naturally!—is a wide range of wines, beers, and spirits, produced here, in the Hudson Valley, from earth to bottle. You’ll find award-winning wineries that have been here for decades, breweries that double as inviting neighborhood pubs, and distilleries that are reinventing age-old traditions.

Do it all in Dutchess. Begin by exploring the Dutchess Craft Beverage Trail! Take a tour, try a tasting, and bring home a little #DutchCraftBev to enjoy with friends!
