Beautiful setting near Franconia Notch (with a beer garden) on a strip of fairly tasteful retail establishments. The food was very good and the beer was slightly better than average, though my Raspberry wheat tasted a little past it's prime. (that's what I get for ordering a sissy beer).
The hostess was a crabapple who seemed to follow my explorations around the building (which is large and confusing) with a cry of "don't go down there or we will lose our liquor license" (like I was going down the fifty foot path, out the gate, and onto the street with my beer).
Plus the place is filled with signs that say things like "don't stand here, mad waitress coming through", "If you like home cooking, stay at home". I realize it was a joke, but I just got an overall feeling that the customer did not come first in this place- which is an attitude which is ALWAYS eventually fatal to any business.

Big place,entered from the front, kept going back to get to the bar area. Rustic charm, awesome fireplace in the far right corner past the bar, imagine that must be a great spot in the winter to sit and enjoy a beer.
Outside seating/ bar area was full, beautiful garden and tables, great spot to sit outside.
Service was friendly but slow. Not sure if it was the waitress or the bartender that was slow.
Had the sampler, most beers were okay, pig ear brown was good, 4000ipa was decent. APA was out , but new batch coming out the next day.
Locals in the bar were welcoming and friendly, chatted about expansion of the place over the last several years and renovation of the bar area.
Overall, a place I would recommend to stop in and have a beer if you have time and meet some locals. Beer was ok, but good variety. Always look to support local beers when traveling.

Love the Pig's Ear brown ale @ Woodstock... Always look forward to it after coming off the trail in Franconia Notch. This was the first trip with my son and I was a bit unsure. But they really went out-of-their-way to accommodate BOTH grown-ups and kids. Still the most solid, reliable option when we're in the area.

decent brewpub with a sort of rustic, homey feel to it; kind of what you'd expect in ski country. the family rents a place in the area every winter, so while we were up one week my wife and I stopped in for dinner. it was a Monday, and we were a little ahead of the dinner crowd so seating was not an issue - plenty of it. food-wise, the menu is essentially American comfort food. I ordered the chili for an app and was sufficiently stuffed by the time my main course arrived (mac and cheese served with pulled pork). wife had chicken and shrimp basilica. everything was good - comfort food good, not award-winning good. no issues with the service, though it wasn't memorable either. as for the beer, they had a handful on tap, all brewed onsite. the pemi pale ale was ok, while their wassail ale was better if nothing to write home about. although I did purchase a bottle from the gift shop to bring home, so that might be a poor choice of words. I was just trying to be a good patron. :) price-wise, not exactly cheap (not much in ski country is) but it won't break the bank. worth a stop if you're in the area looking for some grub and a decent beer, though be forewarned it assuredly gets packed on weekends.

I made a trip during the past weekend to check out the new construction and the crew managed to get the new bar up and running somewhere around 6/30/12. The rest of the building is still in the framed stage. It was the weekend so the crew was not working so the atmosphere was better than it would have been with a bunch of background construction work going on. Everyone still enters at the original entryway and walks up the landing to where the hostess station is but everything from that point on is new. There is a tidy spacious stage area for the entertainment where the original bar stood and the new bar stands on the right hand side. It is sizable and could easily fit 3 times the people that the original fit. There was no decoration to the place as it had just opened. It was purely functional and smelled of fresh cut wood --> Enough atmosphere for me. Wifey and I had some Pemi Pales and I had my pre-requisite chili in the bread boule, my perfect lunch. As the season is just starting the help was busy getting up to speed with the crowds that descend on the place during the summer so we cut them some slack if items came out a bit slowly. I will be going back during the weekend of July 27th and will amend with the latest.

Stopped in for a beer. Service was awful, we were ignored for what felt like 15 minutes. Two rounds of drinks and we were there for about 90 minutes.
Oatmeal stout was good and the patio was a nice place for a beer, but we were told that the area was for dining only, for future reference. Unfortunate. Perhaps there is an area for just drinking outside, but I didn't see one. Service was not good, we received a look of confusion form the hostess after she finally decided to address us standing in front of her, as if she was wondering why we would be there. We were then directed to another hostess who gave us similar treatment. Ten minutes after sitting down, we met our waitress, who took 20 to bring us drinks.
Beer was good, as was the root beer. Didn't have anything to eat, we were afraid of what the wait might be like! Good selection of draft beers and a big menu.
The food menu was a bit pricey, but we didn't dine so it had no effect. Beer was reasonably priced. $8 bucks for a pint with souvenir glass included. $4-5 for a normal pint.
Unfortunately the place was being renovated, so the atmosphere was no good. I can imagine it being a pretty cool place normally, though.

What can really be said about The Woodstock Inn Brewery. Growing up, we skied in the area for over a decade and this place remains a memory of great times and great tastes. The food is great with almost anything to satisfy the pickiest of eaters. But the food is only the accompaniment to the large selection of fine beers offered on a daily basis. Always changing, Woodstock Inn manages to offer a nice balance between their own creations and their competitions best. There is always a new and interesting selection on tap and the classics are available by the bottle for enjoyment anytime. Crowded at times and a long wait on occasion hardly affect the quality of this establishment. If you're ever skiing at Loon Mtn or Cannon Mtn, this is a place you want to have dinner at after a long day on the slopes.

Fairly big building with space for 2 bars and 2 (or 3 depending on your ideas of space) separate dinning areas. Brewpub is on lower floor and is simple, rustic and divey. Upstairs has a slightly more uperscale dinning room attached to a larger space with noisy bar area with some seating, and a decent sized dinning area which screams family friendly.
The house beers cover your standard styles (pale, brown, stout etc.) and most are lighter in body and flavor to appeal to the masses. Seasonal brews appear to be slightly more adventurous.
Food menu is expansive and has something that will please anyone. Simply constructed and just good comfort and bar food.
Service is hit or miss, some of the bartenders come across as surly with the tourists and can be inattentive. Table servers much more friendly and welcoming.
The beer is decent enough and the food tasty enough to make it a good lively spot to hang out at night when in the area, as the remainder of the towns of N. Woodstock and Lincoln tend to shut down fairly early.
