From Lew: “If you look at historical periods like the 1950s to the 1960s, or even the 1890s to the 1900s, rye was a much more prominent drink. We believe it can be once again. I do believe a new generation are that key demographic.”

More About NY Rye Week
“This ancient grain has an important place in New York’s history beginning with its cultivation in the both the Dutch and English colonial eras. Used for making rye flour, rye beer, and rye whiskey, the versatile grain thrived in New York’s glacial soil and northern climate. For hundreds of years it enjoyed a prominent place in New York agriculture.
In recent decades, its popularity waned. Consumer tastes shifted to lighter breads and beer. Bourbon became more fashionable than rye whiskey, and historic cocktails originally developed for rye whiskey began to be made with corn whiskey instead. New York farmers still grew rye as a winter cover crop but lacked a strong commercial market to sell into.
As consumer tastes shift once again, now toward spicier and more characterful products, rye is enjoying a renaissance.”
