Saugerties NY: Up-cycled For your Visiting Pleasure

EAT: Dutch Ale House. Opened the day after Prohibition was repealed in December 1933, the Dutch Ale House was a Saugerties “dive bar” for generations, and remained the place for a pint even as it became more and more run down. Shunned by foodies, the menu featured mostly “frozen food.” That all changed when Dallas and Ted Gilpin purchased “The Dutch” in 2018, expanded it into the tee-shirt shop next door, demo’d the walls to reveal “original Saugerties-made brick,” and brought in esteemed Southern chef and BBQ king, Jonathan Botta.
