Ever heard of Woodstock, NH? It’s 60 miles north of Concord and 90 miles south of the Canadian border, and it has a pretty well-known craft brewery at the Woodstock Inn, Station and Brewery.
On our way north a couple of weeks ago, we decided to take a little detour and check the area out. It is a lovely little New England town with around 1,500 residents. The early industry was logging and paper, but once the White Mountain National Forest started buying up property, tourism became a very important part of the economy.
Woodstock Inn, Station and Brewery has a rich history including starting out as the area rail station. Today, it is a destination spot to enjoy locally brewed craft beer, delicious food, and an opportunity to stay over night at a brewery.
The green awning and door leads to the main building while the other two buildings house additional lodging. Small town, good-sized brewery, and multiple lodging units make for a pretty interesting stop.
Checking out doors always goes better with good beer, right? We thoroughly enjoyed Red Rack Ale, Raspberry Weasel Wheat Ale, and meatloaf and chicken salad sandwiches.
This was the 3rd brewery to open in NH that had a seven-barrel system and taproom. It has now increased to a 37 barrel system, and their beer is available in stores and restaurants throughout New England.
The length to which I go to stay in good stead with Norm, the head brewer of all things Thursday, is hard to believe. 🍺
