Good Beer Hunting

no. 348


Every year, Oxbow Brewing Company hosts the Goods From the Woods festival at their farmhouse brewery in Newcastle, ME. The event sprawls over every inch of their property and farm. You start off at the taproom with a beer and wander into the brewery, where there are also beers. You meander up the hill to the orchard where they're serving even more beers, and this time they're brewed with fruit that was grown right there on the farm. You walk past the beehives where they have a jockey box set up, one that's pouring a beer brewed with estate honey. You walk through another path in the woods, winding down past the back of the barn where the brewery exists, and there's the coolship waiting just outside. You're outside, too, of course, enjoying a beer.
