We had the best first snow day of the season ever with all of you! We really appreciate the great crowd that came out to the toasty barn, and were surprised to see how many folks embraced this weather near the warm fires outside.

To the three guys biking who still had 20 miles to go on the Airline Trail, we hope your warm-up pit stop here did the trick.

We love our customers! You spoke and we are listening: Growler fills are back.

Thank you so much for the feedback. Starting this coming Saturday, December 2nd, we are going back to filling any growler from any brewery. We are still filling our own Crowlers (32 ounce cans). We are NOT selling FOC growlers at this time. We have a strategy in place to keep the lines moving.

*Here’s a growler tip: Triple rinse with very hot water only, dry upside down on a rack or  tipped slightly to drain, and DO NOT RE-CAP! Throw the cap away (recycle bin)- we will give you a new one. This is often how growlers are contaminated.* CHEERS!

 

 

Thank you to all of these wonderful folks who came out last Saturday! We are open both inside and outside (lots of fires) until December 30th.

Back in the lineup this coming Saturday, December 2nd: SWEET JANE milkshake style NE IPA an BREAKFAST IN BED maple coffee stout. Full lineup coming soon.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25TH LINEUP.
