Anything But Beer is a brewery that has grown out of passion for food and beverage, community, and the process of creation. We discovered that many people either dislike the taste of beer or cannot drink it due to dietary restrictions; yet they want to be included in the craft beverage scene. That’s when we set out to create beverages that meet the needs of this underserved group of people. Now we are brewing a wide variety of alcoholic beverages that meet those needs and more. Our products allow a greater number of people to enjoy interesting craft beverages and to feel included by the craft brew community.
At Anything But Beer we aim to meet the needs and preferences of niche consumer markets, such as those with dietary restrictions and those who dislike the taste of traditional beers. We take the time to research and understand industry need so that we can develop innovative and exciting products. And we like to have fun with our flavor profiles so we frequently release new things!
The current selection of products at Anything But Beer are at the crossroads of ciders, wines, and beers. They meet the flavor preference of those who dislike the taste of traditional beers, but that still enjoy the craft beverage scene. Additionally we run a completely grain free brewery, producing naturally gluten free products with local fruits and vegetables. Some of our most popular are Son of James (Oak Aged Irish Whiskey Apple), Wild Thang (Wild Fermented Cider), and Bay of Bengal (Blueberry Cardamom). Our products can be found on draft and in bottles throughout the Central New York region so be sure to ask your bartender for an Anything But Beer.
