What you'll do
Our Downtown Ithaca Craft Beverage Tour is a narrated, guided tour of the heart of Ithaca. You will visit four local businesses, sampling alcoholic libations at each. Sip craft beers, Finger Lakes wines, artisan ciders, and a cocktail crafted with local spirits, adding up to about two drinks. Along the way, enjoy delicious local food tastings paired with each beverage. Accompanying these scrumptious samplings you’ll be treated to insights about each establishment – all neighborhood favorites with a unique story and setting. In addition, you’ll discuss the unique history of each drink in New York State, exploring when it was first introduced and what has spurred on its recent popularity. The Downtown Ithaca Craft Beverage Tour is perfect for Ithacans and visitors alike! Whether you’re a first time visitor or a lifelong “townie” we’re confident that you’ll walk away with a new perspective on Ithaca’s bar scene and the local craft beverages they serve.
Since grade school we've all had a love for food: Sarah taught herself to cook for a class project, Seth dreamed of a build-your-own pasta bar biz, and Cathy baked mud pies with "locally sourced" ingredients like flower petals and sticks. All three of us grew up in Ithaca, and as adults we also fell in love with our hometown: everything from the 'gorges' natural areas to the creative community. Today we curate and lead tours as Ithaca is Foodies. We draw on close relationships with our partner establishments and our undying enthusiasm to bring you a culinary adventure accessible to locals and visitors alike. We cannot wait to bring you out with us!
