Rushing Duck Brewing Company: Chester, NY

We found a dog friendly brewery along our travels on the Shawangunk Wine Trail!  We almost missed the building – until we noticed the “RD” on the door 🙂

We visited some great wineries  on our Anniversary Camping Trip.  The first winery we stopped at was Palaia Vineyards.

This winery is located along the Shawangunk Wine Trail in Highlandland Mills, NY.  The setting is a 200 year old former dairy farm.

The winery and tasting room are located inside the 200 year old barn, which is really cool!

This winery offers a menu of light bites and live music every weekend.  Definitely worth the stop if you are ever in the Hudson Valley area!
