As the North American brewery scene continues to explode in popularity, many beer enthusiasts have opted to abandon their traditional domestic lagers for the distinctive flavors captured by darker, hoppier fare. As the sophisticated tastes proclaimed by beer connoisseurs evolve, so do the characteristics that constitute how good beer tastes. Part of what makes tasting new beers unique is finding local brews that draw from the sights and sounds of their home base.

Ideally located near three excellent Lake George breweries, The Lodges at Cresthaven is the perfect place to bring back some growlers and six-packs for stories and laughs.
