Greater Capital Region breweries list nears 50 mark

The Greater Capital Region, and then some
Depending on how one draws the imaginary boundaries of the geographic area loosely known as the Greater Capital Region, the number of micro, nano and craft breweries inhabiting it ebbs and flows.

I keep the definition rather loose, given the propensity of people in this area to travel a bit to attend the many drinks and food shows and festivals with which it abounds. Thus, certain nearby parts of the Adirondacks, Catskills and Cooperstown area are included in my latest compilation of breweries, which includes at least one scheduled to open early this year, that is approaching the 50 mark.

    Nice list! One omission I noticed is the Suarez Family brewery in Columbia County.
