HELLO OXBOW! Philly's much loved "Fava" returns for a four day stint accompanied by his Oxbow brotherhood.

Fava with Tim at Max's Belgian beer weekend
We were all sad to see Mike Fava leave his assistant brewers post at Nodding Head to head north but the months have treated him well.  He joined
Tim Adams and Geoff Masland, founders of Oxbow, last summer and has been brewing up  some fine farmhouse ales ever since.

The brewery is situated in Newcastle, Me- about an hour or so north of Portland.  As mentioned, they focus on farmhouse ales. The fellows put out a  "freestyle series" that includes a varying styles like Belgian Stout and Loretta- a 4% saison.
