Ok so there’s no Mark Wahlberg but definitely a whole lotta funkiness. Funky Bow Brewery is like a secret farm party in the middle of the woods with a big greenhouse tent, live bands, and of course, beer.
If you plan to go on Friday or Saturday nights, beware. All five parking lots can fill up making it an adventure to find a spot. Since the first lot was full, we had to make the trek up a long hill. No one told me drinking involved working out. But it was so worth it. The first thing I noticed was dogs running around everywhere. I knew this was going to be a great time.
Head inside the tent and you’ll find bands jamming out, a small rustic bar, tables lining the sides, and a pizza stone. A full on folk party.
Not only is the brewery fun, but so are the beer names. G String, which can be taken any way you’d like, is a light IPA with a slight bite. So Folkin’ Hoppy is more earthy IPA with hints of pine balanced with a slight grapefruit taste. My favorite had to be Citra, though. As the name suggests, this beer is packed with citrus and is a very drinkable beer. Perfect for the summer.
I’m excited to head back as the weather gets nicer. This is the place to be, I’m telling you. Grab some friends (or just their dog) and join the party. I’d definitely name this place Maine’s best kept secret.
