A Schoharie County brewery has been named “Brewery of the Year.”

Wayward Lane Brewing earned the crown at the New York State Craft Beer Competition.

The award is given to the brewery that earns the highest number of points in the competition. Points are determined by the number of medals won.

Wayward Lane picked up two gold medals during the competition and several silvers.

The farm brewery opened in 2021 on a 65-acre former hop farm in the town of Schoharie.

The brewery prides itself on its classic styles of beer, but brews a full range of everything from West Coast-style and hazy IPAs to English ales, lagers, wild-fermented ales, and even barrel aged strong ales.

Its production facility and taproom are in a restored 1800s hop house.
