Thanksgiving Weekend on the Piney River Farm

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!

FRI-YAY (& Saturday and Sunday, too) on the Farm Brewery

In The BARn on September 16, 2015 at 9:33 pm

In case you haven’t already heard, the BARn tap room is now open for a lot more than Saturday!

Beginning this weekend, the BARn is open all weekend long, too...Friday, Saturday & Sunday!

Now the BARn is open all weekend long, too…Friday, Saturday & Sunday!

Back in May, we kicked off Sundays on Mother’s Day weekend.  All the moms got a free pint that Sunday, and we’ve been open every Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. since then.

Beginning on Labor Day weekend, we started opening the tap room on Friday afternoon and evening 2 to 9 p.m.

As always, the BARn is family friendly.  Andy’s Homemade Root Beer is on draft for those that don’t drink beer.  We’re pet friendly, too, and there’s always a big bowl of water on the deck for our four-legged friends.  We have a Mike and Julie’s Smoked Meats at the BARn about one weekend a month, and you are welcome to bring food or snacks with you to enjoy with your beer.   We even have a gas grill on the upper deck that you can use–bring your own meat.

We always have sample trays and pints for sale.  We fill growlers and you can take home a Piney River Crowler, too.  We usually have 6 to 8 handcrafted brews on tap for your enjoyment.

We have a full merch line up–T-shirts, baseball caps, koozies, pint glasses, Hydroflask growlers, tin tackers and more.  AND we accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover.   We also have some jewelry and wood carvings available from local artists if you’re looking for something extra special from the Ozarks.

On Saturdays we try to have live music.  The music varies from solo acts to bands.  Many of the bands we hire are local artists with music and swag for sale, too.  You can stay abreast of weekend activities at the BARn by checking out our Facebook page.

If you would like a tour of the BARn, we are currently doing those on Saturdays only–usually around 4 p.m.  If you would like a tour, please tell the bar staff, and they will give you one.  Right now, the tours are limited to the small BARn, but when we get our new barn completely put together, we will give tours of it, too.

Our bigger crowds are usually at the BARn on Saturday, but we’ve heard many people say they enjoy Fridays and Saturdays because there’s less hustle and bustle at the BARn.  You can usually chat up the bar staff, and you can definitely hear the birds singing on the craft beer deck outside.

We started hauling hay out of the loft of our old barn in the summer of 2010.  We always thought we would build some type of tasting room upstairs because we figured there would be a few curious people that would want to sample the beer and see where it was made.  We thought that our tasting room would end up being a cool place for us to hang out with our friends.  We had no idea that the BARn would become a destination location in the Ozarks.  We had no idea that every weekend folks would flock from all over the state to our little farm on the Piney.  We had no idea that we were building a destination brewery.

So, thank you to all of the people that have helped our little brewery reach the point that we need to be open all weekend long.  And if you haven’t already raised a pint with us at the BARn, we are looking forward to doing that with you very soon!
