brew and brats on the menu


Arbor Hill of Naples, NY (Bristol Springs), is launching a new business called Brew and Brats
 
. As the name implies, they will be offering crafted beers and specialty sausages (Brats – for Bratwurst).
Arbor Hill has long produced wines and gourmet foods having distinct flavors signifying the heritage of the region. They now make 21 different wines and 47 gourmet food products.
This new venture builds upon the historical significance of hops, an integral ingredient of beer. The Towns of Bristol and South Bristol were noted for their hop production – most of which supplied the McKechnie Brewery of Canandaigua in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
The featured sausage is made with Arbor Hill Sherried Wine BBQ Sauce, which has been a staple at Arbor Hill almost since the winery opened in 1987 – due to the original formulation developed by Neapolitans Darryl Braun and Doug Preston.
Arbor Hill has also partnered with Hartmann’s Sausage of Canandaigua to offer other exciting flavors and styles of sausage with taste and quality second to none.
The new venue, the historic carriage barn behind the retail store, gives them the grilling capability and ample space for people to enjoy a great brat and beverages.
