Cooperstown has a centuries-old history of fine drink, going back well before baseball became America’s pastime. Once the hops-growing capital of North America, it now boasts breweries, wineries, a distillery and an historic cider mill,each one making world-class beverages for all to enjoy. Cooperstown Beverage Trail is New York State’s first official cuisine trail, Originally comprised of four establishments – Bear Pond Winery, Cooperstown Brewing Company, Brewery Ommegang and the Fly Creek Cider Mill – the addition of Butternuts Beer & Ale, Rustic Ridge Winery and Cooperstown Distillery grew the Trail to seven and now Pail Shop Vineyards and Red Shed Brewery has grown the trail to nine membersr! All these producers, new and old alike are a testament to the resurgence of our region’s beverage industry. At our locations, you can enjoy tastings, take a tour to give you a close-up look at how the beverages are made, or just walk around in our specialty shops. Last year alone, more than 20,000 visitors explored the entire length of our 37-mile trail.
