Now, local brews, wines and spirits accompany Sullivan County, New York’s spectacular scenery, streams, sunsets, and historic sites.
After a morning of angling the world-famous Beaverkill and Willowemoc, another great catch is “Trout Town Amber American Ale” from the Roscoe Brewing Company–close to the stream in Roscoe, or a “Flood Watch IPA,” from the Catskill Brewery in Livingston Manor. Tubing, kayaking or canoeing on the Delaware builds a thirst for “Callicoon Brown Cow Porter” from the Callicoon Brewing Company, in the old Callicoon fire house.
When you’re done hiking, biking or hunting, a Bloody Mary hits the spot at Prohibition Distillery in Roscoe featuring “Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka.” After feeling the love on the Woodstock field and reliving the “60s at The Museum at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, your spiritual journey continues with “Peace Vodka,” “Curious Gin,” and “Most Righteous Bourbon” at the Catskill Distillery in Bethel. Soar with the eagles in a sailplane in or watch them from their natural habitat at the Bashakill Wildlife Management Area.
Then, toast the experience with, a “2010 Black Bear Cabernet Franc,” at the Bashakill Vineyards in Wurtsboro. Cruising Rt. 97 is one of USA Today’s Top Two Autumn drives and pairs well “2012 Pinot Noir-Elizabeth’s Vineyard,” at Eminence Road Winery in Long Eddy.
