Butternuts Beer & Ale Brewery

There's nothing better than a family getaway that is held nearby to the Butternuts Beer & Ale brewery! That, I suppose, and the endless hors d'oeurves and peaceable fall weather; think hills of foie gras and foliage.

Having a steady supply of Butternuts Beer on hand to accompany a game of Catan is quite nice. Plus, the scant hour us youngsters spent sans adults sampling tasty brews on tap and talking smack was a necessary reprieve from this something-of-a family reunion that took us from Vermont to Boston to the Butternut Valley of New York in a whirlwind five days.

You all know Pork Slap, right? It's that orange can of beer with the two pigs belly bumping on it that makes you want to buy it on design alone. Although, I can vouch for the crisp drink-ability of all of the varieties. My personal favorite is the Snapperhead IPA.

This brewery itself is low frills and super casual. Situated in an old dairy barn, you are more likely to be impressed sipping your brews outside whilst enjoying the sprawling vistas than inside the ad hoc taproom. However, inside = more beer faster. It's really a win-win.

Although it was a little chilly, you really couldn't beat the weather in the Butternuts. Or the scenery. Or the elegance. I love the patchwork fertility of the fields+farmhouses shaded with autumnal hues and tinged with that frosty sharpness of the solstitial pull. Perfect beer drinking weather. It figures that we didn't even have any leftover to take home with us.
