Barley Days Brewery

From 1860 to 1890 Prince Edward County’s strain of barley was reputed worldwide as the best malting barley available. The brewers in New York State’s appetite for the local barley was in such demand that the grain covered over 1/3 of the areas cultivated farmland. Barley changed the land and economy so much so that the era was forever known as “The Barley Days.”
