In the Great Northern Catskills, there is a time-honored tradition that warms, welcomes, and waits. We're talking about hand-crafted beer and specialty wines. Experience a dose of this particular brand of hospitality over a pint of local ale or a glass of New York State wine at microbreweries and wineries throughout the Catskills.
Our master brewers and wine aficionados have taken their passion to new heights, sourcing state and local ingredients to hand-craft delicious brews you can only find in the Catskills. Enjoy a local ale or IPA at a variety of Catskills restaurants, or dine at one of our new brew pubs such as Hammo's Brew Pub & Lodge offering the trifecta of beer and wine travel: drinks, food & beds!
Each April, Hunter Mountain welcomes brewers and beer fans from across the country at TAP NY, the largest craft beer festival in New York, to sample rare brews and perfectly paired hors d'oeuvres in one setting, over two hop-fueled days.
From Honey Hollow Brewing Co.'s sub-nano beers featuring hops from the proprietor's own garden, to award-winning brews from Cave Mountain Brewing Company, the region's oldest microbrewery, and Windham Vineyard & Winery's lovingly made vintages, the Great Northern Catskills are ripe for high-spirited fun!
