Finger Lakes Kayaking Brewery Tour
Join us for a fantastic lake day with friends in the Finger Lakes. Rent a kayak or bring your own. Canadice Lake Outfitters will be shuttling kayaks to/from our launch site for our Honeoye Lake brewery tour lake day adventure. A scenic short hike will lead us to the kayak launch site. We’ll enjoy the serenity, sites and sounds of the water with a two hour paddle including a stop at the dock of Twisted Rail Brewing for a flight. We’ll be welcomed back to Birdhouse Brewing with three small batch craft beers paired with cheese from local creameries. Our cheese pairing is in partnership with the Headwater Food Hub.
The Finger Lakes area is blessed with some of the most beautiful lakes in the world. To experience them from a kayak is to see, hear and feel the water in an intimate way. Honeoye Lake is located 30 miles south of Rochester. It is one of the smaller Finger Lakes and one of the prettiest. It is also the shallowest of the Finger Lakes giving it the warmest water temperature. The area around the lake isn’t very developed which adds to the beauty of the lake with tree-covered hillsides.
The two breweries on Honeoye Lake are must-visit destinations for brewery fans. Arriving by kayak adds to the fun. The paddle will be about two hours. The hike is about 20 minutes in and back. Park and meet at Birdhouse Brewing. We’ll leave as a group at 3:30 to the nature trail for a short hike to the kayak launch where there will be a kayak waiting for you.
