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 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.
