Now that we’re (possibly…but not positively) on our way to nicer weather, a lot of people want to start doing things outside, downtown, with friends, etc… Enough of this hibernation, let’s get out and dance or run or enjoy this city!
Something that was a big indicator of Spring when I was in college in Fort Collins was grabbing a group of friends and heading to the numerous breweries in town. Here in Syracuse, Middle Ages Brewing Company is on tap at almost every single bar, they’re present at every single festival, and they do a lot for the community. But, did you know that you can go right to the source and taste all of the beers they offer, for free?!
Free seems to be an underlying theme these past few days…
At the actual brewery, which is a former Ice Cream factory (…uh, awesome!!), there’s a comfortable and middle-age’s-like feel to it; with a knight standing in the corner & everything!
They’re open 11:30-6 throughout the week and 11:30-5 on Saturdays, and 12-5 on Sundays. During that time you can head inside, test out the beers, buy some merchandise from t-shirts, to your favorite brew, to signs, etc…
This is a really fun activity to do with your friends, it’s something that is a lot of fun. Then afterwards you can head downtown to lunch to any of the various awesome restaurants in Armory Square or Hanover Square.
Tip: My personal favorite Middle Ages brew is the Impaled Ale.
location: 120 Wilkinson Street Syracuse, NY 13204
(Must be 21+ to enjoy tasting the beers)
