The Finger Lakes region is well-known for its wine production, and it has a wealth of craft breweries and fine distilleries, as well.  Some of the best beer, wine, and spirits in the world are crafted right here along the Seneca Lake Scenic Byway.

Grist Iron Brewing Co. is an independently owned craft brewery based in Burdett, NY. We love craft beer and want to share that love with the world, so we produce a variety of beers from lagers to sours to IPAs to stouts. We also believe that beer is best when paired with some bangin' food, so we offer a menu of fresh, seasonal pub-style chews. Open year-round, we offer live music every weekend, special events throughout the year, amazing sunset views, a dog-friendly patio, and newly renovated "beer-centric" lodging just steps away from the brewery so you can extend the fun.

Standing Stone Vineyards is integral to the heritage and future of the Finger Lakes region. Located on the Eastern slopes of Seneca Lake, the site is not only visually stunning but also ideal vineyard land. Factors such as proximity to the lake, slope, and soil type are vital components that contribute to moderating lake effects and ripening, and contribute to the distinct nature of our wines. Our production showcases all that this exceptional site has to offer, from classic styles made from some of the oldest vinifera plantings in the region, to more innovative offerings made from lesser known varietals, like Saperavi.
