Football and Beer Coming to Treleaven
Looking for a fun, unique venue to watch football in the Finger Lakes? Look no further than Treleaven, where you can cheer on your favorite team at the winery’s barrel room turned sports bar!
Everything you could want while watching the big game will be a short 25-minute drive from both Ithaca and Auburn. The Treleaven barrel room will be equipped with four 55” high-definition televisions, as well as a large 16×9 projector screen with surround sound that will display the most anticipated game at 1PM and 4PM. There will be multiple seating options available including comfortable couches and high-top tables.
“At the beginning of September we began to see more football jerseys come through the Tasting Room,” said Lev Saltonstall, vice president of Treleaven. “In this area there are few options for sports fans if they want to go out to watch the game, so we thought our barrel room would be a fun setting for people to hang out with friends and cheer on their favorite team.”
There will be a local DJ in the barrel room playing music during the commercial breaks, creating a dance-party atmosphere that pumps up the crowd, whether it’s a regular season game or the championship.
Local favorite 1010BBQ will be serving pub-style food including wings, pulled pork sandwiches and macaroni & cheese, while Treleaven supplies the beverages. There will be more to offer than just wine – local craft beer and domestic brews will be on tap, and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.
“We want the barrel room to feel like a sports bar – football, music, beer and comfort food,” added Lev. “If you’re looking for lively and fun atmosphere, Treleaven will be it.”
The weekly event will run every Sunday, November 20 through December 18, before taking a two-week hiatus to celebrate the holidays. Come post-season play in the New Year, the winery will be show three full weekends of playoff action. See below for the full event schedule:
