F.A.T. Podcast Episode 107 – The Olney Place

On this episode of the Food About Town podcast, Seth Olney from The Olney Place came over to the studio to talk all about his establishment on the east side of Keuka Lake including some of the controversy surrounding his tap room. Seth’s place is an oasis for people spending time on Keuka and if you’re heading in that direction you definitely need to stop in to grab some beer, food and supplies.

Thanks for listening and see you out there!

We talked through what The Olney Place is, was and how Seth got into the general store game. Seth is an interesting interview and someone I’d be happy to talk beer with anytime especially with all the places he has gone out to and visited. His beer nerdery was contagious and I can’t wait to get out more this summer.

We did spend most of the second half of the podcast talking about the legal issues surrounding The Olney Place over the last few years including repealing prohibition, licenses and so much more. Seth is waiting for an appeals decision soon so keep looking out for that outcome when it finally drops.
