New York state was once the largest producer of hops in the United States, but over the last century, the great beer-making tradition lost some steam. This brewery brought it back to the Bronx in 2011, where they’ve been doling out pours of their signature Bronx Pale Ale and seasonal varietals ever since. Stop by on Saturdays and Sundays for free tours at 1:30pm, 3:30pm and 5:30pm. When the weather’s warm, you can even sip your pint outside in the brewery’s backyard. Sounds like the ideal Sunday afternoon to us. Free
Look past the endless assortment of beer bars, wine bars and dive bars in NYC, and instead sign up for one of these booze tours in New York City. There’s nothing like sipping your beverage of choice right from the source: the brewery, distillery or winery where it was made. Most of these cheap (or free!) tours allow you to get a behind-the-scenes look at the production process, taste some of the wares and maybe even learn a thing or two. We’re getting thirsty just thinking about it. What are you waiting for, boozehounds?
