Hochul hosted the 2016 New York State Tourism and Craft Beverage Summit at the Empire State Plaza. Howard Zemsky, New York Dept. of Economic Development Commissioner said that a state like New York with so many people from around the country and world is like a real example for others, and this paves the way for economic development.


This year’s summit was combined with the craft beverage industry, which has seen 183% growth over the last year. As said by New York Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball, the state’s craft brewers, wineries, cideries and distilleries are flourishing and also the farms supplying them with the products. According to the Governor’s office, New York has more than 500 farm wineries, breweries, distilleries and cideries, which attract people around the world. Hochul hopes for another record-breaking tourism this year, since it’s a wonderful place to live, work and play.
