The Niagara Frontier offers ideal geography for vineyards. Lake Ontario is so deep it never freezes. Air coming across the lake and turning over when it reaches the Niagara escarpment creates the perfect conditions for fruit farmers and cold winters make this area a premier spot for ice wine. Breweries and distilleries are also on the rise in Western New York.
Woodcock Brothers Brewery (Wilson) – This former ice house is a unique brewery setting. An onsite restaurant offers great casual meals and wood-fired pizzas. Check out the all new 2nd location in the Wurlitzer building in North Tonawanda.
Local’s Tip: Pizzas are half price on Tuesday nights
Live Edge Brewing Company (Wilson)
New York Beer Project (Lockport) – Tour the brewery, enjoy tastings at the bar or try the gastropub menu for lunch or dinner.
