Upstate Brewing Co

It's really wonderful to live in Upstate New York.  I've mentioned before things like the weather, the diverse range of activities and culture which are available around here...what's also marvellous to see is a burgeoning microbrewing industry.  In the past few years, Upstate NY has brought us Custom Brewcrafters, Rohrbachs, Southern Tier, Horseheads Brewing, Ellicottville Brewing, Three Heads Brewing (can't find a website, but they're on Facebook), and countless others.  With the wide availability of hops and grain, it's no wonder that Upstate is becoming a mecca for craft beer.

One particularly exciting prospect is Upstate Brewing Company, a new venture based around the Horseheads area.  They're very, very new, and if you follow them on Facebook you'll see all that's involved in starting up a brewery.  Watching a new small business come together is really fun to watch, and I'll be keeping a close eye on these guys as they start a new venture in this lovely part of the world. 

Coming up: some thoughts on my first homebrew batch and a writeup of my second batch!
