Summer in the Finger Lakes is all about that laid-back feeling. The one where you can hang out with friends enjoying each other’s company while listening to a local band play, challenge each other to a friendly game of corn hole, and enjoy handcrafted beverages. The tasting rooms on the Craft Your Adventure Trail play host to those perfect Summer afternoons with their relaxed but fun atmosphere whether located downtown on Market Street in Corning, or in a more serene setting on Keuka Lake.

Live music and beer are a perfect pair during the Summertime, and it isn’t hard to find a band playing with a busy music schedule throughout the tasting rooms. Places like Two Goats Brewing, Starkey’s Lookout, Lucky Hare Brewing Company, and Grist Iron Brewing Company have weekly live music schedules through the whole Summer.

Overlooking Keuka Lake, Steuben Brewing Company is an excellent place to kick back and take in the views of Keuka Lake while listening to the weekly band and grabbing lunch from a food truck. Sit on the porch and just enjoy the view or play a game of corn hole on the lawn.

Over on Seneca Lake, Seneca Lake Brewing Company has Summer Dart’s Tournaments, 80’s Retro Nights, Beer Stock Exchange Nights, and more to keep the fun going all Summer long. Catch live music all Summer long. Want to extend your visit? Check out their onsite camping.
