PRESS RELEASE / May 7, 2019 (Essex, MA)Woodman’s of Essex is excited about a new, uniquely North Shore collaboration with Notch Brewing’s Mobile Biergarten for the 2019 summer season. Woodman’s Salt Marsh Tent will host Notch’s Mobile Biergarten during select dates between Mother’s Day and late August.

“I’m a North Shore native and nothing says summer to me like going to Woodman’s and getting my fried clam fix,” said Chris Lohring, Notch Co-founder and Head Brewer, “being able to enjoy fresh session beer with my meal and the view of the salt marsh will be even sweeter.”

The Mobile Biergarten brings the Notch Tap Room’s European-inspired session beer experience to scenic spots and festive events all around eastern Massachusetts, but the Woodman’s collaboration marks the first with a restaurant.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Salem’s own Notch Brewery for our summer Biergarten at The Tent” said Maureen Woodman of Woodman’s of Essex. “In the summer, our customers love eating their lobsters and fried clams outside by the beautiful Essex River Salt Marsh. Now with the addition of the Mobile Biergarten from Notch, they’ll have an even better reason to come to Woodman’s and sit outside with their friends and family.”

The biergarten will be at The Tent May 12 & 26, then June 16 before their regular dates of Sundays (July 7, 14, 21, 28 & August 4, 11, 18, 25) and Wednesdays (July 10, 17, 24 & August 7, 14) of the summer season. The Salt Marsh Tent will also host the Mobile Biergarten on Friday, August 9 for Essex bicentennial fireworks.
