This week, hosts Matt Archambault and Maya Contreras take a road trip along Lake Ontario to Sackets Harbor Brewing, Cape Vincent Brewing and Wood Boat Brewing.

Matt hitches a ride with a designated driver in a classic car and visits three breweries along The Great Lakes Seaway Trail in the 1000 Islands Region. His journey begins at Sackets Harbor Brewing, tracks north to Cape Vincent Brewing and ends at Wood Boat Brewing in the town of Clayton. He also takes a detour to visit the Antique Boat Museum to learn more about the region’s distinctive watercraft. And in Watertown we meet a former Marine-turned-brewer at Boots Brewing who is creating a community hub for men and women in uniform.
