The Woodstock Inn &
Brewery is located in North Woodstock, New Hampshire. They
feature a diverse lunch and dinner menu, three different
dining rooms, an excellent selection of freshly brewed beer and accommodations
for any budget. Their beers are all brewed on site and can be
brought home in a growler (large bottle). If you have the time you
could spend a weekend in one of their rooms and be featured to a
fantastic breakfast each morning. Try not to miss the
spent grain bread that's baked fresh from the oven!
In April and November the Woodstock Inn offers a
brewers weekend where beer enthusiasts can assist the head brewers
with making a batch of beer. It begins with a reception on Friday
night, where you can meet the brewers and other participants, and
ends with a fantastic dinner on Saturday night. Meanwhile, all day
Saturday is spent brewing (and drinking) beer.

Beginning the brewing process
The brewing process begins early (7:00 am on Saturday morning). It
starts with cracking grains in a mill then boiling them to release
all the sugars to convert the mixture into wort.. From there the
wort is transferred into a boiler where hops and other
ingredients are added. After a long boil the wort is transferred
again to a fermentation tank where yeast is added to convert the
mixture into beer. This beer could be any one of their excellent
brews such as Pig's Ear brown Ale, Red Rack red ale or the Weasel
Boiling and mixing the grains to create wort.
