New York State Wine, Beer, Spirits & Cider

In late October 2012, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo hosted New York's first Wine, Beer and Spirits Summit where he brought together dozens of beer, wine, cider, and spirits producers, as well as farmers, industry officials, and tourism experts.

The objectives were to find ways that NYS can continue to cut red tape, increase demand for locally grown farm products, and expand industry-related tourism and economic development.
