Nothing says "Summer" like beer, and nothing says "Beer" like craft. Fortunately, New Yorkers who live not-quite-in-the-Adirondacks have some excellent craft breweries where full, flavorful craft beer can make summer a little better. One of those places is Fulton Chain Brewery in Old Forge. Great...More

I'm torn on this place. On one hand, several of the beers I tried were fantastic (Lake Hopper IPA to name one). On the other hand, they only had seven beers available to choose from. Additionally the service wasn't stellar: at least one of the...More

Not many craft breweries make a stout or porter and being a dark beer lover I found the Bear Road Coffee Stout to be excellent. Probably the best stout I have ever had. The bartenders were also very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. A great place...More

The coffee beer was to die for and the knowledge the bartender had about the beers and the brewery made the experience that much better. All the beers we tried were delicious. Can’t wait to come back and visit and try even more beers.

You might get a quicker response if you message the brewery via Facebook- I don't know if TripAdvisor notifies them that there is a question waiting! If they are open, definitely go- you'll be glad you did!

Yes, you can sit outside with your dog. They have a front porch with chairs and some picnic tables on the side.
