Attention all beer-loving individuals! The East Village and it’s six artisanal breweries and a small batch distillery have banded together to create a self guided tour through our East Village district.
To begin the self-guided tours, you can pick up a passport at any of the participating breweries and distilleries on the tour and start your journey! With every distillery within walking distance, you could easily hit all these stops in one day, or you could come back on different days to check them out.
Once you collect all seven stamps, you get a great East Village growler you can use and reuse…and reuse…and reuse…
The area is definitely on the upswing, with a lot of fantastic places opening up in the area including the breweries listed below. While the area is historically known to house mills and manufacturing, it’s becoming a burgeoning distillery district.
