What a gem. While Oxbow ales and brews are not my regular thing. We sampled a couple brews. Ordered a full glass and sat in there outdoor area. Staff were super friendly and very helpful. We bought several growlers to go. Nice little gem.

A very casual and quaint brewery, where you can sit inside or outside and make new friends. Great beer and variety.

A little off the beaten path but definitely worth it. They have a fantastic tiny brewery with a phenomenal Tasting room. It’s very rustic and the beer is fantastic! Don’t miss out on this hidden gem.

Very cozy place to visit. In the woods so it's not the easier place to find but they have 6-8 good selections at any one time and they beer is very good. Small offering of food.

Nestled into the woods in Newcastle this little place leaves an amazing impression. Visit and taste some great craft beer while you enjoy the tasting room or the nice seating area under the trees. If you like beer this place is not to be missed.
