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.

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.

For my birthday this year my wife (bless her) booked a weekend getaway for us at the Woodstock Inn for their "brewer's weekend" package, which meant I got to help brew a batch of beer, drink as much as I wanted without an extra charge, and have a fabulous beer dinner with dishes made with their house beers and paired with other regional craft offerings. The whole experience was great, and I'd recommend it to any BA who (like me) is thinking about taking the plunge into home brewing and wants to get a chance to talk to some knowledgeable people and have tons of questions answered. But I digress. Here's an objective review of the establishment:
A: There are really two different sections of this place, with the Woodstock Inn dining room up front having a classic old-fashioned B&B vibe, while the Woodstock Station bar and restaurant in the back is done all in wood with lots of beer and outdoor themed decor and live music on the weekends. Both are good examples of their disparate styles. Additionally, down a level is the brewpub, which is really a mixture of the two, as the tables and bar are built under the porch of the original house while the brewing equipment is housed in a newly constructed area that matches the more rustic decor of the Station. It's a fun and inviting scene overall.
Q: Solid beers across the board, with the emphasis on smooth, sessionable beers. They offer a full range of traditional American/English styles, from a pale wheat to an oatmeal stout, all of which are drinkable, and some of which are quite good. No complaints here - oh, and the batch of Pig's Ear brown ale that will be going on tap in late November '09 will have an extra little bit of hand-crafted love from yours truly.
Service: Awesome all around.
Selection: See above; I didn't venture into their bottle list at all, so I'm not sure how extensive their non-house-brewed craft selection is.
Food: Ranged from wholly solid appetizers (amazingly hot sauce for the wings - you've been warned) and tasty, spicy chili in the brewpub to an fabulously crafted and presented beer dinner. The real star, though, was the breakfast menu (all items on which are included in the room rate if you stay the night): it was incredibly hard to make a decision on our first morning, but we loved what we had so much that we had the same things the next - french toast with genuine NH maple syrup for my wife and the King's Choice (eggs Benedict with HUGE cuts of filet mignon instead of Canadian bacon) for me. Incredible.
Value: not cheap, but totally worth it; value options available for all meals, as well.

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!

We went for their Brewer's Weekend and what a weekend it was!
They hold these in their off season - usually April/May and October/November. Brilliant idea - the weekend we went their were 18 people in attendance - that filled about half of the inn's rooms. We went for the mid-level package - a room with private bath but no Jacuzzi or fireplace. It cost $406 for the 2 of us, including 2 nights, 3 meals on Saturday and Sunday breakfast or "in season" an all-you-can -eat brunch, with an omelet bar and Belgian waffles. YUM!
The weekend started with a Brewer's Reception Friday night - free appetizers and sampling of all their beers. Saturday brewing starts at 7am - a 7bbl Shipyard style open fermentation system - and drinking free beer starts soon after. They also provide coffee and homemade cinnamon sticky buns for fortification. Once the grains are cracked and soaking, its time to head to the Clement Room for the worlds best breakfast. Pages and pages of choices, omelets, eggs benedict, and more home made sticky buns. People are free to help out in the brewery or relax at the brewpub bar, or wander off entirely to do their own thing. Saturday night they serve a Brewer's Dinner - 3 course meal paired with beers - either house made or others of the Brewer's choice. Vegetarians beware - the dinner is meat heavy - we were served family style platters of flank steak, roast pork and swordfish. The dessert was a chocolate stout mouse - delicious!
The new assistant brewer - Rik Marley - is a personable, bright and funny guy. And I found that all of the other folks in attendance were just plain nice beer people. You won't learn all that much about brewing that you don't already know if your an all grain homebrewer, but to be exposed to the process on a larger scale is fun and interesting. (Like cracking 250 lbs of grain or climbing inside the tanks to clean them.)
Highly recommended - bring a healthy appetite and a hearty thirst!

I am almost 30 years old. When I lived back east my parents always stopped at the Woodstock Inn after skiing one of the many mountains close by. I always loved the names of some of the beers (Pigs Ear, Weasel Wheat, Loon Golden, Oldman Oatmeal). Most of these names at a young age got me wondering why people would drink beer like Bud, Miller or Coors when there were these beers with such cool names.
When I finally turned 21 I had my dad drive from Lowell MA all the way to N.Woodstock NH to have a beer at the Woodstock Inn. I was so excited to finally drink a beer with my dad at one of our favorite places. The atmosphere is wonderful here. Winter, spring summer or fall. Place just shouts old school NH feeling.
The beer here is pretty good. No it does not make some crazy ass special beers. No they dont make a huge % abv beer for you to go and get drunk on. They make quality beer for anyone to enjoy. They have nice seasonals, a great everyday line up and have some tap only beers once and awhile. A few years ago they started bottling their beer which was great.
The food is good as well. They have great pub apps, 3-5 happy hour, a huge menu with everything you can think of on it.
If you are looking for a place to bring your family on a ski trip, take your family hiking or just want to get away and relax this is a perfect place for a beer lover in NH.
I miss you Woodstock Inn...keep up the good work.

I've been a drop-in at the bar and I've also stayed at the Inn. I must say that as an Inn guest you certainly get treated well. You have a comped breakfast in the dining room next to the station as well as the wonderful privilege of making reservations at the Station for dinner. With waits into the hours for a table, the reservations alone are worth them money. Why spend all of your time in the White Mountains waiting for a beer when there's so much to see and do in the area? If you are staying at the Inn you just walk up to the front of the line, show your room key and get seated promptly.
Concerning the beer, I've never had a bad one here. The selection is pretty common to a brewpub with selections from light to dark and a few seasonal beers thrown into the mix. The beer is good, and I always stop in for a drink and some food if I'm in or going through the area.
The atmosphere, food, beer and service are wonderful. Too bad everyone in New England knows about this little gem!

I only wish this place was closer to me than it is. This is the type of place that most of us would love to own/run if we were had the chance. Great place to eat,drink and sleep. Depending on where you sit as they have a restaurant, brewpub and "dining room", they all have a different feel. The restaurant is very family friendly and is always lively and filled with people. The brewpub is small, yet old world and quaint, lots of nooks wood, and a great pub feel despite the smoke. You can see the brewhouse from the pub, though I've never actually seen it in action, I would hate to take grain deliveries there, look to the ceiling and you'll see what I mean. The Clement room offers you an "upper scale" dinign experience compared to the restaurant and pub, so there's something here for everyone. The beer I've always found to be good and consistant, I only wish they had more seasonal/specialties as they usually have one per season. Personaly I usually drink the IPA and the Stout which is served nitro. if you have the chance to stay overnight here, they have some awesome rooms, in both the main house and in a few guest houses on the ground. A complete experience if you can spend a night or two here and take in the food,beer and the local scenery.

We sat downstairs in the small pub area. The bartender was very friendly and got us samples , beers, peanuts and food quickly.
Nice ,rustic, warm place.
The menu was extensive and the food was really good. I had the London Broil which was excellent and my girlfriend had maple sesame scallops, which were also very tasty. Portions were pretty generous and the prices reasonable. The peanuts were good too !
I had their Pemi Pale Ale both on cask and regular tap, ... also tried their Brown ale. The beers were very good.
A really nice stop after a grueling White Mountain Hike.

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.
