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.

Off the beaten path, this is a dynamite brewery. They have now opened another location in Portland, which is cool, but this place is great. Out in the woods, it looks like they really have some fun events, unfortunately we have not been here for...More

One of my favorite breweries ... Fun group, off the trodden path. Highly recommend for the beer adventurer. I like the hoppy IPAs... Try a flight & enjoy.
