Notch Traveling Biergarten at Appleton Farms

Come to the Notch Brewery Biergarten at the Trustees of Reservations' Appleton Farms in Ipswich!

Back by popular demand! The Trustees and Notch Brewing are partnering up again to bring you another series of family-friendly outdoor Biergartens. Relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of our gardens, farms, historic homes, and parks throughout the summer while enjoying one of Notch’s locally crafted session beers. Not just for grown-ups and beer drinkers – modeled after the popular European style Biergartens, it’s a family affair. Scavenger hunts and quests for children, property tours for adults, plus lawn games with plenty of room to spread out and explore for all.

This October, Notch will be at Appleton Farms for 3 days! Celebrate the start of Fall with a fantastic weekend filled with music and beer in our beautiful stone paddock. This family friendly event was a huge success last year and we can’t wait to bring it back!
