Woodstock Inn & Brewery
Woodstock Inn & Brewery
The Woodstock Inn & Brewery is located in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. They feature a diverse lunch and dinner menu, three different dining rooms, an excellent selection of freshly brewed beer and accommodations for any budget. Their beers are all brewed on site and can be brought home in a growler (large bottle). If you have the time you could spend a weekend in one of their rooms and be featured to a fantastic breakfast each morning. Try not to miss the spent grain bread that's baked fresh from the oven!

In April and November the Woodstock Inn offers a brewers weekend where beer enthusiasts can assist the head brewers with making a batch of beer. It begins with a reception on Friday night, where you can meet the brewers and other participants, and ends with a fantastic dinner on Saturday night. Meanwhile, all day Saturday is spent brewing (and drinking) beer.

Adding Grains
Beginning the brewing process

The brewing process begins early (7:00 am on Saturday morning). It starts with cracking grains in a mill then boiling them to release all the sugars to convert the mixture into wort.. From there the wort is transferred into a boiler where hops and other ingredients are added. After a long boil the wort is transferred again to a fermentation tank where yeast is added to convert the mixture into beer. This beer could be any one of their excellent brews such as Pig's Ear brown Ale, Red Rack red ale or the Weasel Wheat.
