Maybe you’re out on a beverage trail, you’re just looking to take a cruise out into the country, or you were hiking at Cherry Plain State Park…you could really make up any reason to take a drive to Stephentown (home town of Zaddock Pratt!) and visit the Beer Diviner [15950 NY-22, Stephentown, NY 12168], a spot with some funky flair in the middle of nowhere.
Let the mask on the sign draw you in to this quiet little taproom open Thursday-Sunday from ranging hours with some interesting odds and ends for sale, art up on the walls, and Thursday Oscar Movie nights.
There are eight beers on tap and you can sample a few before you decide on your particular choice of pint. You can also grab beers to go, Jeff enjoyed a real sour beer, and I enjoyed one made with maple water. We loved our quick visit and time talking with the bartender, and of course, the beer!
