I stopped in here for the first time last weekend with Festero for the goods from the woods gathering. This place is off the beaten path, you’re not going to bump into this by mistake, but that adds to the charm. Wooded compound for lack of a better word serving up some great rustic ales. There’s a tasting room with many a dozen seats and a handful of taps for samples, growlers or glasses. Building to the left of the tasting room houses a somewhat cramped brewhouse and fermentorium. I’m not sure what the food situation is or the level of service, but I had a hell of a time last weekend and wouldn’t hesitate to stop by if in the area.

A great little brewery and taproom. The location is somewhat remote, but since I went to a wedding that was only 15 minutes away it wasn’t a long detour for me. The taproom is nice and rustic, in a woodsy setting, with seating for perhaps 15 inside and a further 10-20 outside.They had four draft beers available during my visit, for either full pour, as part of a sample flight or for takeaway. There were also two bottled beers available (a bit on the pricey side, I might add). The beers were all quite good. The staff was friendly and quick to serve, though it wasn’t very busy on my visit. They have simple food options, like cheese. Outside they’ve got two cornhold courts set up. Definitely worth a visit if you’re within a reasonable distance, but I probably wouldn’t travel more than an hour to come here unless they had specific beers available that interested me.

Oxbow's tasting room is little more than a bar in the woods--which is completely appropriate, considering their awesome styling of beer and their progressive attitude on brewing. Go and enjoy!

Endroit visité le vendredi 11 octobre vers 15h00. Ambiance: Beau salon de dégustation tout en bois rustique. Tourne-disque qui jouait un vieux Fleetwood Mac. Le fûts de chêne sont sur place. Service: Hyper sympathique. Elle nous à parlé de sa brasserie, des bières disponible en fût en bouteille. Ensuite on a jasé micro du Vermont et du Québec. Sélection: 4 bières en fût disponible pour apporter. 2 bières en bouteilles disponible pour apporter. 7 bières en fûts maison. (226e rating d’établissement)

Bel endroit simple et rustique où règne un ambiance familiale. Le salon de dégustation est habité par une odeur de bariques et un service sympathique. C’est pas très compliqué pour le choix, quelques excellentes saison/pale ale brassées sur place sont offerte. Je suis très content d’avoir eu la chance mettre la main sur quelques bouteilles de leur BA farmhouse pale ale.

This place was Ristic with a capital R. Very cozy and inviting tasting room just in front of the brewery and just down the hill from someone’s house. Odd bird-like creatures wandering near the house, but they didn’t go for our throats or anything. A brewer’s event had just drank them almost completely dry, but I’m betting the selection is normally solid enough to easily justify going a bit out of your way to see this place. Food is tasty cheese and bread/crackers.

Oxbow gets higher marks just for being a shed in someone’s yard. This place is out of town, away from it all, and is making some fantastic beers. There are cheeses for purchase to go along with your beer as you sit peacefully enjoying a fine beer or three.
