Visit to Notch Brewery and Far From The Tree Taproom

Notch Brewery and Taproom

Notch Brewery and Taproom

This past weekend we visited the Massachusetts north shore for our nephew’s 7th birthday party. The celebration was at Roller Palace>, a roller skating joint. Melissa and I strapped on skates, held hands, and skated like we were 15 again. Tons of fun.

After the party, we hit up Notch Brewery and Taproom. I’ve been meaning to visit them since they opened up earlier this year. The spot they have is in a great location, in the heart of downtown Salem. Parking is super easy, as they have a free lot outside the brewery. The taproom has a beer garden feeling, with picnic table seating. There were 6-8 beers on tap. They have outdoor and indoor seating. If you love session beer, I highly recommend stopping by Notch and getting a liter!

After leaving Notch, we swung by Far from The Tree Cider, also located very close to Salem’s downtown area. This was our second trip, however during our first trip two years ago, the place looked MUCH different.

The updated space is awesome! There is plenty of outdoor seating, with bar and high-top seating inside. There were six ciders on tap, including everything from FFTT’s flagship ciders to some of their more recent/unique creations. There is a good sized swag-shop on site too. If you like cider, FFTT makes some of the best and excited cider in New England, and I recommend visiting them.

Weekend Beer and Cider Haul

Tavour Beer of the Month

Hey folks. No beer review tonight, but rather a quick tour of recent additions to my fridge. First, I got a complementary box of beer from the Tavour Beer club. Super excited to try some of this, and tell you more about the club (in a later post).

Next, I spent this past weekend in Vermont. One of my stops was visiting my buddy and fellow Yankee Brew News writer, Adam. Adam sent me away with some beer, which is fantastic, although I felt really guilty because I didn’t bring him any!

Other stuff

One of my last stops in Vermont was to have lunch with my mom and pick out some ciders for her to get Melissa for her birthday. Below is what we picked out.
