TreeHouseBrewing starts serving beer in CT at its Woodstock farm

Jul. 7—"We planted the literal seeds that make it what it is today — a thriving farm with a large fruit tree orchard, berry block, produce program, hop fields, chicken flock, and now, for the first time in the history of protected farmland in Connecticut, a brewery," according to a Twitter post announcing Tree House Farm & Fermentory's opening.

The brewery will continue making and selling cider, but it's most lauded for its hazy IPA. Most recently, its Julius beer was number one on VinePair's 2022 list of "25 Most Important IPAs."

Current draft selections are, "a pale ale with Peacharine, Citra, and Riwaka and a pale ale with Simcoe and Citra," according to the announcement. These are brewed on site, not at one of the other facilities. The announcement does not say whether or not the brewery's more well-known beers will become available in Woodstock.

At the moment, cans of beer are not available. Only cider can be purchased in to-go cans, and those must be pre-purchased online. Reservations are required to visit in order to maintain calm and quiet in the area, the brewery said.

Hours at the Woodstock outpost are Thursday-Saturday noon to 7 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.
