This holiday season, a big push is on for New Yorkers to support their neighborhood, county and state economies by buying local. Buying local doesn’t just mean buying from local vendors, (which is most certainly a must) but it also means buying locally produced and manufactured products and goods. The Pride of New York website details this holiday season effort here. BWG has made a pledge to purchase only NYS made craft beer, spirits and wine during the whole month of december and we encourage all of our readers to do the same. Below is a list of several easy to find and locally available New York based beer, spirit and wine companies, as well local places to purchase them.
