This ale trail is any beer-lovers dream. Starting the trail is easy – passes are delivered instantly to your phone for groups to start the trail as soon as they would like. The digital ticket grants you one beer flight, consisting of four to five tasting, at each of the six breweries.
The six breweries include Black Barn Brewing Company, Druthers Brewing Company, Frog Alley Brewing Company, Great Flats Brewing Company, Mad Jack Brewing at the Van Dyck and Wolf Hollowing Brewing Company.
While some of these are new to the scene, like Back Barn Brewing Company and Frog Alley Brewing Company, others are staples of the county like the award-winning Mad Jack Brewing Company.
Each pass costs $40, which can easily be purchased online. If you complete the entire ale trail, there is an opportunity to score a free t-shirt.
“We stopped in [Great Flats Brewing] as part of the Schenectady Ale Trail and glad we did. Really nice tasting room and friendly beertenders. Really like that they have different size pours.”
