Roscoe Beer Company’s latest brew is the perfect match for this Hunting Season

Written by TroutTown

A True Everyday Drinking Beer for the Great Outdoors

The Roscoe NY Beer Co, home of the Trout Town™ hand-craft beers in Roscoe, NY, is releasing its newest beer, the Trout Town Whitetail Pale Ale. This sessionable beer coming in at only 4.7% ABV, is the fifth beer in the Trout Town™ line-up available in bottles in stores. With the opening of hunting season, the Trout Town Whitetail Pale Ale makes for the perfect match for those long nights on the look-out and times by the camp fire.

Whitetail Pale Ale differentiates itself from the other Trout Town™ beers with its ever so lightly toasted flavor and gentle hop finish which makes it an easy, smooth everyday drinking beer. This beer uses an ultra clean fermenting ale yeast allowing the high quality ingredients to shine. Brew master Josh Hughes is using a light pale ale malt coupled with a variety of lighter kilned malts enhancing the flavor with nice clean notes of toast, but still allowing the beer to be extremely light in both – body and color. The delicate balance of hops consists of both american and european hops, giving the beer a clean smooth flavor.
 
“We’re excited about our new brew,” explains Josh Hughes, brew master for Roscoe NY Beer Co. and maker of Trout Town™ craft beers. “Craft beer is my passion and from the beginning it’s been our mission at The Roscoe NY Beer Co. to create brews that are unique and something we can believe in. We feel this beer is perfect for all beer lovers. It’s a true ‘everyone’s beer’.”

To honor the bond of the great outdoors and the Roscoe Beer Co, the Whitetail Pale Ale bottle features the story of Sonny’s Buck. Vince “Sonny” Romano from Brooklyn, NY hunted with family and friends in Roscoe, NY through the 1970’s and 80’s.  While unsuccessful in the woods for many years, he justified the time spent by connecting with the great outdoors and being part of a tight knit group at camp. After he overheard a story about a beautiful whitetail buck, roaming  near their hunting camp in Roscoe, his mind was set on meeting up with this creature.  “Sonny’s Buck” completed the journey in 1980 and the rest of the story is part of family lore. So next time you hit the Catskills visit us at the brewery, enjoy an ice-cold Trout Town hand-crafted beer and ask about Sonny’s hunt for the buck that has become legendary. Roscoe Beer Company: NO TALL TALES – JUST GREAT BEER!!!

With an aggressive plan in place, Trout Town™ Whitetail Pale Ale’s distribution will go far beyond its hometown point of sale. Whitetail Pale Ale is available now for a limited time on draft and in 12 oz. six-packs in stores. With the release of the pale ale, our brew will be widely distributed throughout Sullivan, Delaware & Orange Counties, Long Island, the five boroughs of New York City, and the Binghamton area. A partnership with the supermarket chain ShopRite will serve to bring our Trout Town™ Whitetail Pale Ale to all of its Hudson Valley stores.

The Land That Time Forgot

Written by TroutTown

Roscoe, NY is a small town that has at least some significance to most of my family. For my grandfather it was the town where he was born and the town where he is now buried. For my Mother’s generation the Roscoe Diner was where you stopped to eat on the way to or from New York City.

For Mrs. Usedhair and I it was this mysterious land that time forgot. As we would drive past Roscoe cell phone signal was non existent and if you put the radio on seek mode it would run around and around searching for about 10 minutes as you cruised down the road before it could manage to find anything at all.

On our vacation in the Southern Tier of New York we decided to drive out to Long Island for a few days. On the way there we noticed that Roscoe had cell phone signal, radio stations galore, and… A brewery!

Now this is something I had to see. On the trip back we made a point of stopping in. I assumed the sign visible from the highway meant that the brewery would be right by the road as well. So we pulled into downtown Roscoe looking to find it without bothering with the help of a map. What we found there had me quite worried.

Plenty of good spirits at Spring Fling Festival in Roscoe

Written by TroutTown

ROSCOE — It was a Spring Fling Festival, on a day that didn’t feel much like spring, following a winter that didn’t feel much like winter. But on Sunday, hundreds of people came out for a celebration hosted by the Roscoe NY Beer Company because, hey, every day feels like a good day for a beer. The brewery, which started up in Roscoe just three years ago, already hosts several seasonal festivals annually, but this was the first year for the Spring Fling, said Shannon Feeney, director of marketing and events for the beer-maker. Feeney estimated as many as 500 people had passed through by mid-day, a remarkable turnout given Sunday’s cold, damp weather, she said.
Twenty-five vendors were set up under tents, selling everything from farm market items and produce, to artwork and photography, to jewelry and handcrafted goods, to food and wine. Also on hand were Nicole Guite, Sullivan County region manager for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, and puppy raiser Barbara Ward-Blank. The two brought along Otter, a 6-month-old female black Lab; and Fuchsia, an 11-month-old female German shepherd, to help persuade folks to sign up to become puppy raisers for the visually impaired.  Continue reading “Plenty of good spirits at Spring Fling Festival in Roscoe”

WHAT’S IN A NAME? Boulders continue to feature “Captain Lawrence” beer at House that St. Lawrence Built

Written by TroutTown

The Rockland Boulders baseball team has featured craft beers with Boulders-inspired recipes at home games in Pomona the past three seasons, including ones brewed by “Captain Lawrence.”

It is not clear whether the man who loves to see his name everywhere, Ramapo Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, is involved with the team’s decision to partner with Captain Lawrence, but the name similarity is at least ironic. St. Lawrence was, after all, the ‘captain’ of the project that brought the Pomona ballpark into being, even allegedly going so far as to risk the town’s financial health and his own freedom to do so.

The Boulders confirmed in a press release this week that Captain Lawrence remains a featured brewery on the menu despite the possible negative name association due to the recent arrest of the local real Captain (St.) Lawrence.

And for the third out of four seasons, the Rockland Boulders will add a new specialty beer at the annual “Beers Around the Bases” Craft Beer Festival. That event is taking place Saturday, May 14 from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the Pomona ballpark, now known as Palisades Credit Union Park.

Krankee Yankee, a brew produced via Roscoe NY Beer Co with a 5.5 percent alcohol level, will be added to the menu, the third craft beer the Boulders have created, and the first IPA. In 2013, the Boulders debuted Bottom 9 Brew in conjunction with Captain Lawrence and they followed that up in 2014 with a joint effort with Long Ireland Brewery in the form of 2nd Base Blonde.

Boulders owner Ken Lehner has profited off the House that St. Lawrence Built in Pomona, while Ramapo taxpayers have lost tens of millions. Could it be that the Boulders’ alliance with “Captain Lawrence” breweries is meant as a nod to the man who manifested the Boulders ballpark?
Boulders owner Ken Lehner has profited off the House that St. Lawrence Built in Pomona, while Ramapo taxpayers have lost tens of millions.
“For the past two seasons, our fans have proven that they appreciate the Boulders Beers that we have had the pleasure of producing in conjunction with local breweries and Dana Distributors as both limited releases of Bottom 9 Brew and 2nd Base Blonde have sold out,” said Ken Lehner, Boulders Team President. “We are always listening to our fans and it was evident that they wanted an IPA added to the lineup in 2016 and we have delivered with Krankee Yankee.”

Tickets for the Beer Fest are $35 in advance, $40 on the day of. Those who wish to be designated drivers can get admission for $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Following the Festival, the Rockland Boulders baseball team will face off against NYPD’s Finest in their fourth annual exhibition game starting at 6:30 p.m.

Roscoe Beer hosts winter fest in Trout Town

Written by TroutTown

By Timothy Malcolm For the Times Herald-Record

It’s nearly February, and there hasn’t been much snow this winter in Roscoe.

That’s a weird feeling, especially for the folks at the Roscoe Beer Co., who are planning the first Trout Town Winter Festival. They could be staring at a winter festival on green grass, in relatively balmy temperatures for late January.

“We would just call it a mid-summer winter fest,” said Shannon Feeney, director of events and promotions for the Roscoe Beer Co. “A ‘no-snow’ snow festival.”
In case it’s a no-snow festival, organizers plan to have wheeled carriage rides and lawn games like bean-bag toss and beer pong. But the hope is a little of that white stuff will be covering the ground Saturday afternoon at the Roscoe Beer Co. Then all the planned winter fun can happen without a hitch.
That fun includes horse-drawn carriage rides through the snowy wintry scenes of mountainous northern Sullivan County, plus snowshoeing, snowball fights and a contest to determine the best snowman. Continue reading “Roscoe Beer hosts winter fest in Trout Town”
