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 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.
Founded in 2010 and influenced by German and Czech biergartens that serve as community hubs for all ages, Notch Brewery is known for its popular session beer and its recently opened, family-friendly tap room and biergarten located in downtown Historic Salem. The first brewing company in the U.S. to focus exclusively on the lighter, lower alcohol session style beer, Notch Brewery is community-focused and supports the local food movement by sourcing its barley and malt from Hadley, MA.
Join us at Castle Hill for a summery Sunday afternoon biergarten with views of the ocean off of our Grand Allee! Enjoy an afternoon picnic and family friendly activities.
Larry Elardo, a New England Sculptor's Association member and participant in the current "Spirit of Place" outdoor exhibition at Castle Hill, will be on hand to give a demonstration of his craft from 2 pm - 5 pm.
The Great House will be open from 10 AM to 5 PM for house tours (additional ticket fee applies) and our Grab-and-Go cafe will be open during that time if you would like to purchase a picnic on-site. A food truck may also be available as a dining option.
