The Bassett Street Hounds are in the early stages of planning our Dog Days Ale. It will be held from July 7 - 9 in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes Wine Trail district.
We will be camping once again on team member Peter Hoover’s property in Trumansburg, New York, about 10 miles northwest of Ithaca. This site, a lovely farm and orchard with plenty of room for camping, has been Morris-tested for the past 19 years as the base camp of our Dog Days Ale. It boasts a mind-melting sauna, a guaranteed fine campfire, gorgeous scenery, and plenty of very fresh air.
Although we haven’t worked out touring details, we expect to take advantage of the area’s abundance of wineries, brewpubs and state parks. There is a swimmable pond at the campsite and the lovely beach at Taughannock Falls State Park is only 15 minutes away.
Please let us know if your team would like to be considered for an invitation. We can’t guarantee anything, as there is a limit to the number of people the site can accommodate, but we take enthusiasm (and availability) very seriously.
