Monday, we were in the Leatherstocking Region of central New York en route to Ithaca and the end of the vacation. Heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame, we stopped in at Cooperstown Brewing not actually in Cooperstown but in nearby Milford south on #28 about 7 miles...maybe. I reviewed their variety 12-pack last year and for the first time felt a little funny in doing what I do, going up the drive past the hop plantings and into this micro, having said bad things about their stout. These people work hard and who am I to say...no, I am the customer. I should rule...a bit.
No fear as I found a nicely laid out shop with very friendly staff. I noticed a brown I have not tried before but grabbed a six of their excellent Benchwarmer porter as well as a bright yellow t-shirt of the same. I took some photos (which I will post) of their small 1940-ish hanger-like structure by the railway tracks.
If you do go and you have kids, be there at 11:00 am as that is when the Milford to Cooperstown old fashioned railway leaves the depot next door and your kids think that is why you are there.
