What would Natty Bumppo do? That’s what came to mind while I was reading an entry from the Drinks blog on Syracuse.com about the Cooperstown Beverage Trail.
(Natty Bumppo is a fictional character from James Fenimore Cooper’s Leatherstocking Tales).
The Cooperstown Beverage Trail officially consists of Fly Creek Cider Mill, Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown Brewing Company and Bear Pond Winery. I’ve been to three of the four- the two breweries are not to be missed. Fly Creek, as was commented in the Drinks blog, has more of a family atmosphere. That said, the products are still tasty.
The official site for the Cooperstown Beverage Trail is http://www.cooperstownbeveragetrail.com - and oh yeah, there’s baseball, too.
