Notch is proud to partner with The Trustees to bring you a series of public, family-friendly Traveling Biergarten events in some of Massachusetts’ most scenic places.

We're heading back Stevens-Coolidge Place for our first Trustees event of the year!

We'll be set up in the historic gardens and lawn of Stevens-Coolidge place from 4-9 with games and activities, biergarten furniture, session beer in half-liter steins and lots of room for you! Bring your friends, a picnic, and enjoy these special surroundings.

About Stevens-Coolidge Place:  The Stevens-Coolidge Place is a wonderful example of “the country place,” when rural retreats were designed as places that integrated indoor and outdoor spaces – and that were meant to be lived in as well as admired. The property served as a summer home and agricultural estate for John Gardner Coolidge and his wife, Helen Stevens Coolidge, from 1914-1962 and features two connected late-Federal period farmhouses, four distinctive gardens, and a greenhouse complex. Since becoming a Trustees’ property, Stevens-Coolidge offers tours of the home, which includes the family’s original furnishings, many garden-centric events, and several festivals during the warmer months.

The Trustees is a non-profit that preserves, for public use and enjoyment, properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in Massachusetts. Their network of over 100 farms, historic homes, and wooded areas spans from The Berkshires to the Cape and Islands and everywhere in between.

The Holmes Reservation is a treasured piece of open space in an otherwise developed city center. From the top of the field, you can take in distant views of Plymouth Harbor, Duxbury Beach, Clark’s Island, and Gurnet Point. At the foot of the field is a small woodland bounded by abandoned tracks of the Old Colony Railroad. And, don't miss the beach nearby – it’s a great spot for kids to explore. 

Before the Revolutionary War, a section of the reservation's field was part of a famous “Muster Ground.” Plymouth farmers in the militia would gather here to practice shooting their muskets and marching in formation.

Notch is proud to partner with The Trustees to bring you a series of public, family-friendly Traveling Biergarten events in some of Massachusetts’ most scenic places.

We're heading back Stevens-Coolidge Place for Oktoberfesten-festing!

We'll be set up in the historic gardens and lawn of Stevens-Coolidge place from 4-9 with games and activities, biergarten furniture, session beer in half-liter mugs and lots of room for you! Bring your friends, a picnic, and enjoy these special surroundings.

About Stevens-Coolidge Place:  The Stevens-Coolidge Place is a wonderful example of “the country place,” when rural retreats were designed as places that integrated indoor and outdoor spaces – and that were meant to be lived in as well as admired. The property served as a summer home and agricultural estate for John Gardner Coolidge and his wife, Helen Stevens Coolidge, from 1914-1962 and features two connected late-Federal period farmhouses, four distinctive gardens, and a greenhouse complex. Since becoming a Trustees’ property, Stevens-Coolidge offers tours of the home, which includes the family’s original furnishings, many garden-centric events, and several festivals during the warmer months.

Minton Stable Community Garden

Throughout the year, we’ve partnered with The Trustees to bring our Mobile Biergarten to some of New England’s most beautiful locations. This weekend, we’re so pleased to help celebrate another of the Trustees lovely features: its network of Boston community gardens. We will be pouring our session beers alongside buzzing and vibrant plots of vegetables and flowers, all grown by local residents of the Stonybrook community in Jamaica Plain.

About the Trustees Community Gardens: Urban green space across Massachusetts – and across the country – is disappearing, and that makes safeguarding the open space we already have critical to the health and well being of our city neighborhoods.

Our 56 community gardens —totaling 15 acres across eight Boston neighborhoods—are tended and cared for by local residents. These oases of green are sources of neighborhood pride that connect people and place. They turn neighbors into friends, strengthen family bonds and traditions, and inspire joy in the shared work of growing fresh, healthy, and delicious food.

From Roxbury to the South End, Dorchester to Back Bay, every one of our community gardens is unique. A garden may be a group of individual plots or common areas cared for by small groups. It may be a vegetable garden or a pocket park. But what every garden shares is passionate people working together to create a thriving neighborhood asset that benefits everyone in the community.

What’s more, our gardens provide healthy sustenance to the families and individuals who tend them, producing an annual crop valued at approximately $650,000 each year.

Our role as caretaker of Boston’s green spaces doesn’t stop with our own gardens, though. We help to coordinate activities related to all of the city’s 176 community gardens, touching more than 15,000 individuals and families.

Weir River Farm Mobile Biergarten

For our final Trustees weekend, we invite you to join us at Hingham’s Weir River Farm, for stunning views of South Shore farmlands, rolling hills, and peppy Belted Galloway cows. We will be bringing our full fleet of biergarten tables, half liter mugs, and a fond farewell attitude as we conclude our season at Notch Mobile Biergarten. We hope you stop by.

About Wier River Farm: Originally part of a picturesque, early-20th-century country estate, Weir River Farm today is a 75-acre working farm comprised of fields and pastures surrounded by oak and red cedar woodlands. The farm supports diverse wildlife habitats, including upland grasslands, which are in rapid decline in the Commonwealth. Weir River passes through the farm at its northwest edge. 

From the entrance at the top of Turkey Hill, a footpath meanders downhill through open fields and woods. At a fork in the trail, you can follow one path to the barnyard and visit with the horses, pigs, and chickens. The other path takes you across a grassy avenue before entering “The Grove,” woods with an open understory reminiscent of a British woodland. A “Garden Path,” bordered by flowering shrubs and flowers, within the Grove, creates a serene and pretty sanctuary for visitors. 

From the trails on Weir River Farm, you can get to adjacent Whitney and Thayer Woods, whose trails are connected to those in Wompatuck State Park and the town’s Triphammer Conservation Area. This extensive trail network provides you with access to the largest contiguous tract of open space on the South Shore – nearly 5,000 acres in all.

About Stevens-Coolidge Place:  The Stevens-Coolidge Place is a wonderful example of “the country place,” when rural retreats were designed as places that integrated indoor and outdoor spaces – and that were meant to be lived in as well as admired. The property served as a summer home and agricultural estate for John Gardner Coolidge and his wife, Helen Stevens Coolidge, from 1914-1962 and features two connected late-Federal period farmhouses, four distinctive gardens, and a greenhouse complex. Since becoming a Trustees’ property, Stevens-Coolidge offers tours of the home, which includes the family’s original furnishings, many garden-centric events, and several festivals during the warmer months.
