Always a fabulous experience and atmosphere. The beers are fun to explore with something for everyone’s liking, including some exceptional guest Cider (the blueberry is my favourite.). The new chef knocks it out of the park so be sure to come in hungry and thirsty.

Had the farm table salad with berries, nuts and smoked cheddar. Perfect lunch. Small place with choices of ale. Husband had chili, and it was best we have ever had!

I didn't. At least not until today (day 1 of 30 days in Maine). Cask-conditioned beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized, has a second fermentation and has no additional CO2. That's the short version of what I remember from the excellent lesson the owner provided for...More
