As mentioned a few months ago, I also missed the driveway to the Brewery on a trip there last August. My wife and I did a quick beer search on the phone while driving around the Boothbay Harbor region on our annual New England craft beer pilgrimage, and were directed to the Oxbow. I actually drove by the entrance convinced that this could not possibly be a retail establishment! Well, you know what they say about a book and its cover. The Oxbow was a real treat. Small, woodsy atmosphere, very little bar space and barrel tables create a stagecoach stop feel that I absolutely loved! The beer was everything a Belgium Farmhouse brewery would want to be. The Pale Ale was my favorite pick of the day.

We spoke with the young lady at the bar and I was surprised to learn that the Oxbow was available in one of our favorite Philly bars, the Kyber Pass. Sure enough, we hit the Kyber over the Christmas Holiday and right there on the sidewalk menu board was the Farmhouse Pale Ale! Sad to say we went inside and found out that they had just kicked the keg, go figure.

Outstanding brewery. Recently stopped in here on an East Coast brewery tour and we heard about Oxbow word of mouth. This place is a gem! Tucked away in the woods on an awesome wooded property. Had a flight of what they had on tap and honestly though their saisons were on par if not better than the stuff I had recently tasted at Hill Farmstead. Also the pour girl Molly offered her back yard for us to camp!!! and when that didn't work out she personally reserved us a place at a local camp ground. Cant say enough good things. DONT PASS ON INFINITE DARKNESS OR OXTOBERFEST

Great place in the Maine woods. The tap room is small and beautiful. Tables inside right next to some of the barrels they have filled for aging. Staffing is very nice and attentive. Limited parking but there were not a lot of people there the day I went (Wednesday). I was also able to try the Saison Noel 2012 which was outstanding! Overall, a great place with great farmhouse style offerings. Highly recommend a visit.
