planning the next stop on their
itinerary.
“People come into Morta-
lis, and say they’re heading
next to Dublin Corners, or that
they’ve just come from Rising
Storm. It’s doing exactly what
we hoped it would do,” said
Bill Bacon, director of Living-
ston County Economic Devel-
opment.
Two years ago, the “Brew In
Livingston” business compe-
tition sought to create a craft
beer trail in Livingston County
by providing grant funding and
low-interest loans to help craft
breweries begin operations.
Four winners were named on
St. Patrick’s Day 2017, and the
county’s economic develop-
ment office worked with three
additional breweries to further
their business plans.
This fall eight stops are
available as part of the “Liv-
ingston Libation Loop.”
Genesee, Orleans and Wyo-
ming counties are also estab-
lishing their own selection of
wineries, craft breweries and
ciderworks.
The GLOW region finds it-
self a short drive away from
both Finger Lakes and Niagara
wine countries, two regions of
New York State known world-
wide for distinctive tastes.
Finger Lakes Wine Coun-
try is centered around Cayu-
ga, Keuka and Seneca lakes.
The two little Finger Lakes in
Livingston County also have
wineries. Deer Run Winery on
Conesus Lake in Geneseo and
Eagle Crest Winery on Hem-
lock Lake have both earned
awards in international com-
petitions.
The Niagara Wine Trail has
grown to include locations in
Orleans County.
Here’s a look at GLOW re-
gion wineries and brewers:
