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.

Oxbow not only has some of the best beer I’ve ever tasted but is also a really cool place to hang out. The employees are very nice and are always knowledgeable regarding new beers. When the weather permits it’s great in their outdoor area. I...More

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.

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.

Oxbow is an unpretentious little gem with amazing craft beer. Tucked far enough away from Damariscotta that it feels like a bit of an adventure to get to, but not so far away as to deter you from making a quick run out there for...More

Great Brewery in the Woods in Newcastle, ME. Got a flight, and was able to bring my dog. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because one of their beers the Grissette might've been the worst beer I've ever tasted....More
