Brewed in New York: The Adirondacks

Thu, 08/16/2018 - 8:30pm - 9:00pm

This week, hosts Matt Archambault and Maya Contreras visit  the Adirondack Brewery and Big Slide Brewing, Lake Placid Brewing Company, and Ausable Brewery.

Matt and Maya show us the appeal of the Adirondack Park in every season of the year. First, Maya visits Adirondack Brewery in Lake George and we attend its winter Festival of Barrels. Matt heads inside the Adirondack ‘blue line’ to check out a pair of very different breweries: Big Slide and Lake Placid Brewing Company. Plus we visit Ausable Brewery; a small business attracting a big following in the farmland of the Champlain Valley.

Brewed in New York: The Adirondacks airs Thursday, August 16 at 8:30 p.m. and again on Sunday, August 19 at 3:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV. It also repeats Sundays at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 11 p.m. on WXXI-CREATE DT 21.3/cable 1276. 

Brewed in New York highlights the burgeoning craft beer industry that has taken New York State by storm. Co-hosted by craft beer aficionado Matt Archambault and enthusiastic novice Maya Contreras, each episode explores multiple breweries in a different region of New York State. Both informative and entertaining, the program explores various aspects of craft beverage tourism, the art and science of beer making and reveals how each brewery’s unique story ties into the character, agriculture and attractions of its hometown.
