John Brown Lives! & Keene Arts Present


Spring has sprung, the ADKs are lush and green, and the temperatures are warming up. That means beer garden season is officially here at Ausable Brewing Co!

We’re starting our regular summer schedule this week, which means there’s plenty of opportunities to come enjoy our spacious beer garden with our newly expanded pavilion, grab food from one of our food trucks and listen to some live music.

We’re open every Thursday – Sunday, with live music and food trucks every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, and the occasional event with food and music on Sundays.

Our beer garden is very family friendly, dog friendly, and an all around relaxing atmosphere. For more information, head HERE or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
