Just a 30 minutes’ drive from Boothbay Harbor is Oxbow Brewery’s Newcastle tasting room.
It’s a cozy room that serves beer and nibbles and offers board games and books for those who just want to (drink and) hang out for a while.
They also sell beer and food products to go, as well as other souvenirs.
I recommend getting a flight of beer to try out the various selections.
Check here for upcoming events at the brewery.
You can easily combine a visit to Newcastle (I recommend the Newcastle Publick House for lunch or dinner!) and/or to Damariscotta.
