little Lake BrewingBack to Top of List
It’s easy to “get hooked” on little Lake Brewing. Established in 2017, the company has been roasting its own beans and serving up tasty breakfast sandwiches for years in Lakeville. There is a lot of meaning packed into its name, too: ‘little’ references the owner’s mother’s maiden name, the little Finger Lake it is located by, and to emphasize it is a micro beverage center with small-batch, artisan beverages brewed on site. The ‘Lake,’ of course, references Conesus Lake. With 14 different roasts of coffee and four small batch beers made onsite along with seltzers and wine from around the region, there is a ‘little’ something for everyone.
