Piney River Brewing Company

Thanksgiving Weekend on the Piney River Farm

In The BARn on November 22, 2015 at 7:40 pm


We have so much to be thankful for out here on the Piney River Farm.  And that includes you.  You have given us incredible support over the past five years. (Five years?!)

There have been a lot of changes on the farm this past year, and we know that the BARn tap room is place that a lot of you love to visit or bring family to visit over the holidays.  And YES! we are open all weekend long after Thanksgiving.

Bring your turkey sandwiches, your turkey casserole, your turkey soup, or a pizza and come hang out with us on Friday from 2 to 9 p.m.  We’ve got just a wee bit of Sweet Potato Ale on draft and in cans, most likely for the last weekend at the BARn.

On Saturday, we’ve got your food covered, and it ain’t turkey!  Nope, Mike and Julie will be here with smoked pork and brisket sliders and those delicious fried potatoes that go so well with a Piney River beer.  The Hamburger Cows will be back in the BARn mooing original and old timey tunes, too.  We’re open from 2 to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

And finally, if you need a place to unwind after a weekend of relatives, we’re open Sunday, too from 12 to 5 p.m.

Don’t forget, you can start checking people off your Christmas list with Piney River merch–hoodies, T-shirts, pint glasses, koozies and Hydroflask stainless steel growlers.  We’ve got gift certificates, too!

Many of you have asked about touring our new brewing and canning facility.  We are not ready to offer tours yet, but we will have a grand opening for our new building and start offering regular tours of the new facility every Saturday, probably sometime in January.  Meanwhile, just tell the tap room staff if you would like to see where we started, and they can give you a tour in the original BARn.

Where you are this week and on Thanksgiving Day, all of us at Piney River hope you enjoy day with great beer and the people that you love the most.  Cheers!
