Tupper Lake Brew-Ski 2020

Tupper Lake Brew-Ski 2020

With some nice snow on the ground and the sun peaking through overcast skies here and there, we gathered some friends and set out for Tupper Lake to check out the 6th annual Tupper Lake Brew-Ski.  Held at the town’s James C. Frenette Sr. Recreational Trails and golf course, the concept was simple – snowshoe or cross-country ski the trails on the golf course and stop at the stations set-up along the way to sample some tasty local craft beers.  Even fat tire bikes are made available for rent by High Peaks Cyclery during the event. As we pulled up to the golf course, we realized the Brew-Ski was attracting far more people than we were anticipating - cars lined the roadway and the line to buy tickets curved from the clubhouse down to the parking lot.  


We gathered our crew (Lucy and her pup friend Wilson included!) and our cups on a lanyard and after watching groups of people continually start the mile and a half trail to the left, we went to the right.  Our first stop was Raquette River Brewing which had a porter, an IPA, and a sour to choose between. Thus we began our trip from station to station - tasting great beers, warming ourselves by bonfires, and socializing with others out enjoying the day.  As it turned out, starting the opposite direction helped us avoid too many lines, but it did mean that as we reached the last stops on the tour, some of the breweries had run out of beer and had to pack up shop. All in all, it was a fun day filled with families, friends, and pups all getting out to enjoy a winter day.
