Portland has become an international destination for food and drink, and Oxbow Blending & Bottling is located in the epicenter of it all.  We have partnered with award-winning local restaurant Duckfat for our in-house food program as well as our shared beer garden. We are also surrounded by spectacular eateries and there are dozens of other fermenters, distillers, and roasters within walking distance.

A foot tour of the neighborhood is not complete without enjoying views of the city skyline from Fort Sumner Park (5 min) and the views of Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean from the Eastern Promenade (10 min).  There are plenty of hotels and private lodging options nearby, so please consider staying and enjoying this charming city for a few days before or after visiting us in Newcastle (1hr)!
