The Schenectady County Ale Trail is nothing new but now they have another option for those who only want to be on the trail for a limited time. Plus it's half the price.

In an effort to bring more business and awareness of what Schenectady County has to offer with local breweries, they have come up with another version of the Ale Trail.

Schenectady County breweries are in the spotlight with the Schenectady Ale Trail Passport program. Discover Schenectady launched it in 2018 and it features six breweries throughout the county for $40. This gives the patron a beer flight or pint of beer at each of the six breweries. But there is a new option. This will target those who are in town for a wedding, an event, or the weekend.

What Does the $20 Option Give You?

The Schenectady Ale Trail Passport $20 option lets you choose three of the six local breweries to sample according to the Times Union. You will still get a flight or a pint at all of the breweries you pick. It's just a smaller version.
