    • mustangdmv The Catskills are a great place to visit for some hiking and camping, but also for the delicious craft beers. Catskill Brewery has a small taproom where you can order your drinks and head outside to the picnic tables or sit at the small bar and watch the brewers do their job, since their bar is in their large barrel room!

They've got just a 7 barrel brewhouse that you can see from the taproom where all their beers are made. Take a break from boating and waterskiing and grab a beer and relax on the patio.
