On a summer Saturday at Roscoe NY Beer Co., located right down the road from the famous Roscoe Diner, don’t be surprised to see a crowd at the bar or in the newly expanded tasting room. The former firehouse-turned brewery, known as the home of the Trout Town Hand Crafted Beers, offer self-serve taps, tours of its brewing facilities and live music throughout the week. For beer connoisseurs, Thirsty Thursday Growler Specials are a must.
The Vallone and Fettig families—Roscoe natives who share a love for their hometown, the great outdoors and crisp beer—founded Roscoe NY Beer Co. in the spring of 2013. As the owners explained, they felt that “a town as all-American as ours deserves a beer of its very own.” Their ties to Roscoe, known for decades as “Trout Town USA,” is apparent everywhere at the brewing company, from the name of their beers, like the popular Trout Town American Amber Ale, to the live trout swimming in the fish tank of the tasting room.
Roscoe NY Beer Co. offers a range of brews to suit all tastes, including very light pale ales such as the Trout Town Tail Ale, to Trout Town Brown Ale, a robust, brown ale with rich chocolate and coffee notes, perfect for summoning fall days. For a break from your usual beer-of-choice, a pint of their Wild Ale, an expertly crafted brew made with 100% wild hops, will fit the bill. The owners of the company are very dedicated to local agriculture and use as much New York grown barley and hops as possible.
Whether you’re hanging in the tasting room, sipping beer on a comfy, leather couch, or kicking back amongst the local paraphernalia and taxidermy on the walls, it really feels like you’re in the middle of the woods at a rustic, hunting lodge with a limitless supply of good beer.
When the team isn’t busy running brews and operations, you can find the Roscoe NY Beer Co. folks hunting, fishing and enjoying the natural beauty around Roscoe. Otherwise, the facility is open seven days a week year round. Be sure to also stop by the gift shop and pick up some local swag—like the comfy tees emblazoned with Trout Town USA.
