I made it a point to book a room at the Woodstock Inn during our recent New England trip so I could enjoy the brewery and sample their beers. I thought if it brewed beer anything like the beers I enjoyed at the 2002 Vermont Brew Fest, this would be a real treat. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

Don't get me wrong. The Woodstock Inn is a great place to stay, and North Woodstock is a great tourist town in the New Hampshire White Mountains. The bar in the brewpub has some very interesting pieces of history hanging on the walls, including some remnants of hotel registration, invoices and pictures from the early 1900's.

I sampled everything on their beer menu but could not find anything I liked. The pale ale, red ale and stout tasted watered down and lacked any real substance or excitement. It was nothing like the great beers I would sample at Jasper Murdock's the next night when we visited the Norwich Inn in Vermont.

After sampling each beer, the bartender asked if I had decided which beer I wanted next. I told her I would pass. I knew I had some much better New Hampshire beer on ice in my room.

I used to love the Woodstock Inn and would stop there after leaving the woods from backpacking in the White Mountains with my friends. Their food is pretty good,and they had some great beer on tap, with the Oatmeal Stout being my particular favorite! However in the last couple of years they have gone downhill big time!
I do not think they have much (if any) of a tap line cleaning schedule! ALL their beers on tap taste like FUNK every time I go now! I would just think it was a fluke and would order another different beer, and same thing, nasty funky beer. Everyone else I was with noticed it too! And it hasn't just been on one occasion, like I said EVERY time I have gone lately over the past couple of years, can't be a fluke!
They seem very busy all the time, so maybe they don't think they have the time to clean their lines, but if they keep it up I don't see it being busy much longer! Especially since there is another brewery that has opened next door in Lincoln (One Love, although I haven't tasted there yet).
I hope they adopt a scheduled frequent line cleaning policy soon, but I won't know anytime soon since I gave them enough of a chance and have written them off completely.
I won't be going back anytime soon!

I have gone for dinner a few times, good for the area but not a place i would seek out. Lots of outdoor seating, the beers were so so and the food was decent.

Stopped in here last Friday night (6/05/15) for dinner with my family. Surprisingly not busy. Sat at a table booth right near the windows. Nice bar area, with smaller rooms for seating with antique decorations. Service was great, as our waitress was friendly and checked in a few times. Food was good and enjoyed by all. Beers were decent, but none really blew us away. They offer 5 glass flights for $5.75. Small gift shop at the front selling beer and glasses. Brought a Woodstock growler from home and filled it for $9.50. A fun stop to see once, but not a place I'd head back to anytime soon. Wasn't that great.

The beers at the brewery tend to be more enjoyable to drink than they are from the bottle. It may be because many of the bottle ones are brewed under contract bu another brewery. The eatery is part of the Common Man chain of high quality restaurants in New Hampshire. There are some unique but also some old stand-by meals to choose from off the menu. Soup in a bread bowl is always a good choice.
