Once the former hops-growing capital of North America, Otsego County has a rich history when it comes to beverage production – from wines and spirits, to beers and ciders. Today, avid drink connoisseurs will find many a delightful libation to sample here, including Belgian-style and pop-culture inspired brews from Brewery Ommegang (Game of Thrones beer, anyone?), no-nonsense beers from Butternuts Beer & Ale, unique spirits from Cooperstown Distillery, and hard ciders from Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard.

After a day of exploration at breweries, wineries and distilleries, pair your new favorite wine, beer, or spirit with a delicious and tantalizing meal from a Cooperstown restaurant, many of which proudly serve local adult beverages on their menus.
