CATSKILL — Local residents spent months nominating and voting for their favorite businesses and services in the second annual Best of Greene County competition.
On Friday, the winners were announced in a gala celebration at the Lumberyard Center for Film and Performing Arts.
The contest is sponsored by Columbia-Greene Media and the Greene County Chamber of Commerce. Beginning in October, people were asked to nominate and vote for their favorites from around the county, in categories ranging from arts and entertainment to restaurants, dental offices, libraries, and the service industry, among others.
…Crossroads Brewing, with locations in both Athens and Catskill, also took home several awards, including Best Place for Nightlife, Best Place for Meeting with Friends, and Best Place to Have a Craft Beer.
“It’s always an honor to win anything, and it’s nice to see that people appreciate us,” said Rob Sager, director of marketing and events for Crossroads Brewing. “We love everyone that comes in our doors — it’s a great friendship we built with our customers.”…
