US brewery offers visitors booze-up and then sleepover on premises

A booze-up in a brewery followed by a sleepover on the premises sounds to good to be true for those who like to imbibe - but that’s exactly what a Maine brewer in the USA has begun offering local and international tourists.

And while technically the Oxbow Brewing Company’s sleeping quarters are separate from the brewing facility, they are only a matter of steps away in the same farm compound and are easy to get to if you find yourself in a tipsy state.

The Boston Globe reports that the 18-acre concept farmhouse is about three hours drive from Boston and has sleeping accommodation for nine people.

Guests are allowed to wander around the property, and the rental includes a credit for a $25 a night entry to the tasting room where visitors can enjoy some of the brewery's signature beers.

Oxbow specialises in Belgian-style ales all made with the farm's own springwater. While in the tasting room, guests can call for a pint of their favourite or else order a flight of different varieties. As well as the beer and ales, there are some local cheeses and pickles for people to snack on.
