For the beer lovers in the crowd... any thoughts of a brewery tour? Yet another reason to drive around the lake Very Happy

Disclaimer: I of course do not condone drinking and driving. This is a way to visit a few breweries and perhaps fill a few growlers to enjoy later that evening once you are finished driving.

There are a bunch of new ones this year. It seems the more popular/well reviewed ones are all on the east side of the lake, on the way back or to Watkins Glen. A few I find to be of interest:

1. Heavily Brewing in Watkins Glen (haven't been but is reviewed well).

2. Roosterfish in Watkins Glen (went here but wasn't overly impressed. Decent tap list).
http://www.roosterfishbrewing.com/

2. Grist Iron Brewing (haven't been but is reviewed well).
http://gristironbrewing.com/

3. Two Goats Brewing (have been a few times. Beers are variable but you gotta buy a t-shirt here).

3. Lake Drum Brewing (Relly close to wagon fest. See picture below. Wagon drawn is not to scale but is the location of wagonfest).

Wisconsin - nice! I make it up there about once a year. Appleton area...

I'll trade you some Ohio brews for some New Glarus brews...

Yep, my sister in law lives in Appleton!  I'm over there about every 2-3 months.  She just bought a blue 93' roadmaster wagon with woodgrain delete, with a lil' influence from me;)  Keep me posted for whenever you head up this way.  But, yeah, I'll try and remember to bring a case or two of Spotted cow to WF! drunken

Because of the car show going on in Geneva that Friday night, I would think we'd want to stay away from the downtown area. Therefore, my biggest concern I have about a tour up from the Glen is to stay on the East side of the lake, and visit the craft breweries and wineries on the east side as we come back up north.

Wineries tend to be to the south end of the lake and breweries toward the middle and north. Maybe we culd meet those not going to the Glen around the middle of the lake and work back up to the motels.

We could come up the west side of the lake and still avoid the downtown.  We could sneak through the Hobart College campus, circle around, and avoid the downtown entirely.

Check out the website for Climbing Bines hopyard and craft brewery in Penn Yan (http://www.climbingbineshopfarm.com/our-farm/).  I'll be there next week with a class from Cornell, and I'll see if I can get them to arrange a tour and tasting for our group.  What time might we be headed north from Watkins Glen?  There are other breweries on the east side as well.  Distillers and cider makers too.  And you can't throw a rock without hitting a winery.

I figure the motel(s) are on the Waterloo side as well, so the east side stops made more sense to me.. Both wine and beer... what could possible go wrong?

Well, we might as well stop at a gun shop too. This one is on the east side, but there are several on the west side of Seneca Lake as well.

I'm still up for it... but I've been busy scrambling to get my car ready for the trip (I'm bringing my "new" silver '94). It's in a bunch of pieces at the moment. Hoping to finish the paint work this evening.

I plan to be in the Watkins Glen area right around when the track time thing is happening, but it doesn't look like I will be on time to go to the track.

I'm planning on stopping somewhere in WG around that time, and will be driving up the east side of the lake. A must-stop is Two Goats, so I'm sure I'll be there at some point. Pretty informal. I'll be filling growlers for enjoying at the Microtel later that evening.

A little more detail - I'm planning to make two stops involving three breweries on the way up the east side of the lake:

Heavily Brewing is my first planned stop, around 5:30 to 6:30: http://www.heavilybrewingcompany.com/

The other will be Grist Iron and Two Goats, timing should be about 7:00 to 8:00 for both of those. They are right next to each other:

http://www.twogoatsbrewing.com/

Anyone driving the Glen that is interested in going? If so let me know and I'll slow my roll a bit so y'all can make it to Heavily. I'm going to be running too late to make the track this year. Enjoy!
