Discover the amazing beer, wine, and spirits being produced in New York City with the local drinking experts at New York Urban Adventures!
Yes, beer, wine and spirits are all produced in NYC by dozens of small, artisan companies that are creating some of the best products in their industry. You and a group of friends or colleagues can choose to visit all breweries or wineries or distilleries, or mix them up in any combination you like. Much more than a booze cruise, this tour will educate you on alcohol production. You’ll also get a superb meal paired with local beer and wine, enjoy delicious local libations, and learn how these local producers work their magic, all while having a great time.
Your private NYC tour begins with an amazing locally sourced lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in the city. The lunch features farm-to-table ingredients which you’ll enjoy with a glass of local beer or wine. After lunch, we’ll jump in our mini-coach and head out to visit our first producer. Each stop will include a tour and tasting, where you will meet the people making the delicious products and be able to talk to them about their craft and what is unique about each business. Every producer is an intrepid entrepreneur and many of the places you’ll visit are less than 10 years old. You will hear about the challenges and joys of starting a business like theirs and, who knows, you may even be tempted to follow in their footsteps!
But wait, how are they making wine in the city? Where is the vineyard? These wineries are operating in the tradition of the urban winery, in which the grapes are grown nearby, harvested, and brought into the winery where the rest of the process occurs. So while the vines are not on-site, they are local, and getting grapes delivered from vineyards is actually quite common in the industry, even with wineries that are located right in the vineyards. The wines are outstanding and showcase the growing wine regions of New York State.
So join us for a day of wine, beer, and spirit-tasting, and Urban Adventures will handle all your transportation, reservations, lunch, and more. All you need to do is relax, imbibe, and enjoy!
