As seen in Step Out Buffalo


Spring is in full bloom here in Western New York! The sun is shining, the heavy coats are finally tucked back in the closet for good, and maybe most crucially, we’re absolutely itching to sip a fun, refreshing drink on the patio of a brewery. 

Luckily, there’s no shortage of craft breweries, distilleries, cideries, and wineries to check out along the LivCo Loop— the perfect way to tie in a fun night out with a quick little spring road trip out of the city. 

Home to stunning gorges, hidden valleys, and some of the most scenic and productive farm country you’ll ever find, Livingston County is a not-so-hidden gem in the Genesee River Valley. And while they’re best known for being a nature-lover’s paradise (we’re talking sprawling waterfalls, outdoor hiking, and nature trails galore), there’s so much to explore in the realm of wine, beer, and other fun adult bevvies. 

That’s exactly why they’ve created the LivCo Libation Loop, a trail of 12 renowned craft beverage makers in Livingston County. Whether you’re looking to try something new this spring or just need an excuse for some much-needed time with friends and family, here are some of the top spots along the trail to check out for live music, food, and drinks.
