A top-rated brewery is tucked away in Dutchess County. I can't be the only one who had no idea that this place existed.

The craft beer craze has taken the country by storm over the last decade. Drinking craft beer used to be for the hipsters but now it has become common. Experts estimate that almost 10,000 breweries have started operating since 2017. You could say that the business is very... hopping. I'm sorry about that. All jokes aside, New York State is home to many breweries.
