1st day in New Paltz

After sleeping in from the long ride the night before, Jack and I finally make it to the Gunks! We had an awesome day of climbing, and I got some trad leading under my belt. So I felt like a celebratory beer was in order. I had found a good looking restaurant that was about 30 min outside of town, and since the rest of the group wasn’t with us yet, we felt like we would explore NY a little. After passing through tons of cute small towns we made it to Rhinebeck to go to Terrapin restaurant.

Bonus points for being in an old church!

The place was cool, nice wooden ceiling! The food was awesome too. But lets get to the point, I ordered the Keegan Mother’s Milk ale!

I was happy to pick a Keegan because I’ve never had one of their beers before and its brewed locally! Really good milk stout. Sweet aroma, medium light carbonation, strong malt finish. Just what I was looking for to finish an awesome day!

  1. Thats so cool to have a restaurant/pub in an old church. So appropriate to beer drinking ale – you can just imagine the monks brewing and chanting and swilling. very nice.
