Windham Mountain, Windham, NY (July 24, 2019) -
Keg, Rattle and Roll presented by Great Northern Catskills is on August 3rd and 4th, just ten days away! In addition to 67 craft beers and ciders, and 13 wines, the inaugural festival at Windham Mountain will feature live music, craft and food vendors.
Standouts on the beverage list include a Saison Rosé from Brewery Ommegang, Aloha Friday, a tangy fruit cider from Downeast Cider House, Equilibrium Brewery’s MC2 Imperial IPA, and Sloop Brewing Company’s Super Soft IPA. While most of the lineup is sourced regionally, there are some great options from further away like Bell’s Brewery’s Oberon Ale Wheat Beer and 21st Amendment’s Hell or High Watermelon fruit beer. The wine list has red, white, pink, still and bubbly options from four continents, noting several New York choices. “We’re offering a really good mix of different categories of beers, ciders and wines,” says Dave Kulis, Director of Sales and Marketing and Windham Mountain, and the driving force behind Keg, Rattle and Roll. “There truly will be something for everyone to enjoy, including a kids soda tasting experience.”
Live music will accompany the tasting event both days with a five-band lineup on the NBT Bank Stage. The Silver Chain Band, Moonshine Junkies and 80’s rockers, Lost Angeles will play Saturday, with Whiskey Cross and Southbound providing Sunday’s soundtrack. The festival will also highlight local food and craft vendors, including smoked BBQ, Jamaican cuisine, fish & chips, street tacos, and more.
