Ithaca Beer Co. Tour and 5 awesome facts…

Awesome fact #1: They use water from Cayuga Lake, which has a unique mixture of minerals, giving their beer a distinctive body.

Awesome fact #2: 70% of the beer they produce is Apricot Wheat.


Awesome fact #3: Correct fill height in the bottle is crucial! The perfect amount of space allows carbonation storage which increases the beer’s shelf-life (employees take home the botched ones)

Awesome fact #4: They produce 700 gallons of beer daily.

Awesome fact #5: People travel from all over the country to get a bottle of their limited edition New Years champagne, Le Bleu, which is made in oak barrels with blueberries. It sells out in one day! (This picture is not it–this is their delicious Root Beer)
