Finger Lakes Sunset Kayak Brewery Tour During the (almost) Full Moon
Our first Kayak Brewery Tour sold out so we created another one, and this time it’s a happy hour paddle. We chose this date for a few reasons. We had so much fun on our scouting mission on a weekday after work we thought others would too and on this night, we’ll be able to watch the sun set over the lake.
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. We’ll catch the sunset and the (almost) full moon rise and 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 tasting with one of the brewer owners. We’ll be welcomed back to Birdhouse Brewing with three small batch craft beers paired with cheese from East Hill Creamery.
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 one hour and 45 minutes.
Tickets are $63 and include kayak rental and delivery, life jacket, and two beer flights, one paired with cheese, and a mid-paddle snack. Tickets are $38 if you have your own kayak. Additional scrumptious food and beverages are available for purchase at Birdhouse Brewing.

Cheese pairing with East Hill Creamery
East Hill Creamery is run by Gary and Betty Burley who in 1981 started East Hill Farm with just 100 acres and 18 cows. With the help of 4 of their children, they now milk 1,300 cows on over 1000 acres in Perry, NY and that fantastic, grass-fed milk is what East Hill cheeses are made from. East Hill Creamery has taken the ideal of traditional farmstead cheese and elevated it. By using raw milk exclusively from their dairy farm they are able to guarantee quality from pasture to plate. The terroir of Wyoming County has led them to focus solely on Alpine-style cheeses. Proud to be a part of Wyoming County’s rich dairy history, and proud as well of the artisan cheese they are making.
