State Senator Patty Ritchie is announcing passage of her legislation to create New York’s first official craft beer trail, a unique attraction that would boost the Upstate economy and highlight local craft breweries in Northern New York.

Similar to the way in which wine trails have been established in the region, Ritchie’s bill (S.518-A) would create the “North Country Craft Beer Trail,” linking craft breweries in Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties.
