1812 is made by the Sackets Harbor Brewing Co. in Sackets Harbor, NY about 30 miles from Clayton. Its’ a nice clean amber, very reminiscent of Newcastle but with less malt, which makes it quite drinkable.
The Riverside Cafe has good food and riverside dining, right on the main channel looking out on Calumet Island. Try the creamy Manhattan clam chowder. The friendly waitress told us it is the house specialty and they have been serving it for 21 years.
