After a planned hiatus, The Brewery at Maple View Farm will open on March 7 with fresh beer and live music. With a successful year under its belt, The Brewery is ready for 2020. “We sort of just tried to keep up last year—we were really overwhelmed with all the positive response from customers,” commented Kate Bogli, owner of Maple View Farm with her husband Jason. The brewery mimics the seasonal activity of the farm, with busiest times in the spring and fall, but plenty of fun to be had all year long. “Having the acoustic bands inside the barn and on the patio has been great,” commented Jason. “We’re excited about our lineup for this year. We plan to offer live music every Saturday and Sunday.” The bands that play at The Brewery generally match the farm’s casual and down-to-earth vibe.
New for this year—the farm will have a marked trail for hikers to enjoy before they settle into one of The Brewery’s Adirondack chairs to enjoy a pint or two and listen to music. Farmer Kate’s kombucha will also make its debut this spring. Kombucha, a non-alcoholic, fermented sweet tea, is known for its probiotic properties. “I’ve been making kombucha for years and I’m excited to add it to The Brewery’s offerings. I’ll be using fruit that we’ve grown on our farm to flavor it,” Kate adds. “We’re also ready to offer The Brewery for special event rentals. It’s really a fun place, so we are excited to share it in this way.”
Brewery hours are Saturdays, 1—8 p.m. and Sunday, 1–6 p.m.
