Craft Beer Started Here™
Evidence suggests that the first craft brewery in the US was in NY in the 1600s. Today, there are more than 450 craft breweries making NY 2nd in the country.
Retailers, suppliers, event producers, vendors and other supporting businesses play a critical role in the growth of the craft beer industry.
Non-voting Allied Members have a myriad of ways to participate in the NYS craft beer community. Memberships run on a calendar basis and the annual fee is the same regardless of the join date.
