This seemed like a great place to take my better half with me for a Valentine's weekend. We could enjoy a nice getaway and at the same time try some new brews. She won't mind....
The Brewery/Inn itself is located in the quaint "downtown" of North Woodstock, NH, a short drive away from both Cannon and Loon Mountains. The Brewpub/Station is actually attached to one of the Inn buildings. The first night we ate in the more ritzy Clement Room where the food was absolutely fantastic and plentiful. Not to mention it was very reasonably priced. Had a seasonal Wassail with dinner (a Tuna steak) and must say it matched nicely. Service, value, quantity and quality were exceptional.
The second night, we chose the more pub-oriented Station for dinner. We headed in around 7:30 and probably had about a half hour wait for a table. It seems that many a skier head to the Station "apres ski". No problem, somehow we were able to find a nook with some counter space and enjoyed a Pig's Ear Brown Ale as we waited. Once seated, we found the menu incredibly expansive; from subs to salads to pizza to seafood. Went with some seafood express (scallops!) and a Weasel Wheat. Man did I hit the jackpot. The seafood medley was fabulous and heavily portioned and the weasel wheat was the best brew I tasted from the Inn.
Overall, it was a great stay at the Inn and it's highly recommended for anyone looking to enjoy some great scenery, skiing, and beer! Well done Woodstock Inn!

BlueEcho and I visited the Woodstock Inn after a nice, but chilly hike up Cannon Mtn. The stained wood interior provided a bright and warm feel for the inns bar and dining area. It would provide a perfect apres ski setting. The wait staff was friendly, and seemingly knowledgeable - although I didn't try to stump them. There were six beers on tap. The menu was extensive and diverse, although we only can comment on the quality of the Onion blossum. I look forwrad to retuninng to the inn for a full meal and an exploration of their offerings.

I swear I nearly got lost in this place while throwing some back with my lady after hiking some of those nearby hills. Had the Pemi and the Pig's Ear Brown, which were decent enough, but didn't knock my socks off. All extract? Not sure. Lots of this stuff available in bottles throughout NH now.
The menu was nearly as mind-boggling as the architecture of the place, twisting with no apparent pattern. Given that, you'd be hard pressed not to eventually find something on the menu that would catch your eye. Prices were definitely reasonable, and I noticed somewhere that they offer brewing weekends for the neophyte wanna-be brewer.

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.

A nice establishment in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We ate on the terrace outside which was very tastefully done with a plethora of plants and flowers on the terrace. Overall quality is excellent...with a great mix of food, beverage and atmosphere. Waitstaff was friendly and efficient and tended very well to our needs. Selection is also excellent...over 140 menu choices ranging from sandwiches to full meals, Styles included American, Mexican, Chinese, etc. I chose a burger topped with gorgonzola cheese. It was a perfect complement to my Old Man Oatmeal Stout. This offering came with commemorative pint mug which I will certainly use quite a bit. Six brews were offered that evening and the oatmeal stout was good and I have tried some of their other brews and tehy are equally above average. Our bill for three came to only about $40 with tip, so it was a good value also.

One of my few "cannot be improved" atmosphere scores. This is because Woodstock inn and brewery has what must be the most possible atmospheres of a brewpub.
large, noisy bar area with big TV's and rowdy patrons (I remember a drink-spilling rager who turned out to be a waitress in the front-room restaurant.)
intimate bar area with coasters laminated into the immense wood slab bar... referred to the inn as its "brewpub," it is probably the best place for full-on beer sampling.
a small family-like restaurant area where the kids will probably be the most comfortable.
a seriously delightful outdoor seating area (the worst service of the place smoothed over by the outstanding surroundings) in the warmer months.
and the aforementioned restaurant which will sell the brewery's beers but feels more appropriate for breakfasts and meals with teetotalers.
Not only all that, but this is a working inn where I have spent a delightful weekend hiking by day and sampling beer after beer at night.
The beers themselves err on the side of people pleasers with few subtlies. Hop head will be probably disappointed with all the red, wheat and light ales flying around. Pemi pale is not a permanent offering. Sigh. I find the beers tasty in the surroundings, a case where the establishment betters the flavors of its beers simply by existing.
There is also so much food to choose from that I give the something -for-everyone menu a 4.5 score, without ever having sampled the whole thing. I don't think one person could. But fans of hamburgers who haven't had an original burger in a while, and could care less about caloric intake might look out for the half-pound served-in-an-enormous-oval roll "Guido burger" covered in pepperoni, provelone, marinara and peppers or "California Sunshine burger" (my health-conscious brother in CA would die if he ate one of these) with roasted red peppers, artichokes & grilled portabello mushrooms sauteed with basil pesto. There are several other enormous burger choices; I can only think of this as burger heaven.
Easy to find at the west end of the Kangamagus, this is my favorite inn-with-a-brewery in the US.

This was a very nice and rustic place with a nice selection of beer but not very good food. The atmosphere was very comfortable, tiber frame construction and all natural wood bar make for a nice place. The service and knowledge of the beer was average but not great. The selection of beers was great about 6 on tap, all very good. The only complant I had was the food it sucked.

When I worked in Lincoln this used to be one of our hangouts. My friends were in the Mug club which was a great deal. If you go, I suggest that you sit at the bar in the back. It is a bit more layed back and you don't get all the traffic from the dinner crew. The beers are solid. I used to enjoy their Stout a lot. They also had Growlers if you wanted to bring some home. The service varied from night to night. I have eaten there a bunch of times and the food is solid. If you are up in that area, do stop by.

I love skiing Loon, so naturally I head here. The brew on TAP is great, but do not buy any to go. I have done this many times and it is usually flat. The food, and do not laugh, especially the breakfast, is great. Who doesn't drink with brunch? The football game is always on on sunday. A definite "take".

The menu at the Woodstock Inn is huge. They have everything from pizza to filet mignon. Prices are very reasonable and the food is good. However, they were a bit skimpy with the toppings for my burger. At the time I was there they only had a few of their beers on tap. I tried the Pemi Pale Ale and found it to be a tasty beer with a nice combination of hops and malts. I've also had their Pigs Ear brown ale on several occassions and would highly recommend it. Free samples are available for any of their beers if you ask your server. The restaurant is rather dark and is located towards the back of the Inn. I thought the layout of the place was a bit odd and hard to get around without walking into somebody. Also, 6 packs of their beer used to be available in northern NH, but are now hard to find.
