York County Ale Trail

How It All Started

With today’s booming craft beer industry, York County is once again at the forefront of the industry. It features 21 breweries situated throughout its rolling hills, farmland, and picture-postcard main streets, all of which positions York County as the up-and-coming craft beer capital of the Mid-Atlantic and a true Beer Destination for any craft beer lover!

“I created the York County Ale Trail to provide an exclusive and unique educational experience that celebrates York County craft beer. Whether you’re a novice or experienced in the craft beer scene, this tour is for you. We have so much to offer,” says Glenn.

In 2001, founder of the York County Ale Trail Glenn Smith moved to York and, along with an army of other people helped lead the charge of the City’s renaissance, which has included a blossoming and burgeoning craft beer scene. For more than a decade, he has enjoyed many “beercations”, visiting small, independent breweries throughout the country. In 2017, Glenn decided to create the York County Ale Trail to show off York County’s amazing craft beer scene to the world.
