Paul Leone is the Executive Director of the New York State Brewers Association.

Welcome to our new website! I apologize for the amount of time it took to launch and only have myself to blame. As I approach year one of being the first Executive Director of this great association, I find that I could use a staff of about 3 to accomplish everything that needs to get done. Maybe in time, but for now, we are making great strides and getting stronger and more organized every day.

This new website is desigend to be easy to navigate with the hopes that everyone can find the information they are looking for in a matter of one or two clicks. This initial version will not be perfect, but I promise that it will improve quickly and be updated regularly over time. 

Features that we are really excited about include a Farm Brewing information and resource page, festival and events guide, videos, updated brewery map, links to resouces like the SLA and other state organizations to help brewers navigate the law, and a members only forum. It’s desigend for both the brewer and consumer to use. 

This blog space will include posts from myself, but also include posts from our Associate/Allied members to share what they have to offer. If brewers have something to offer, we’ll have guest blogs to share that info as well. It’s a space to give information and discuss ideas. 

Please take the time to look around and if you have any suggestions to further improve the site, please drop me a line.
