What’s On Tap: Rick Marley of the Flying Goose Brew Pub & Grill
Starting as a home brewer because he thought it seemed “cool” to make your own beer, Rik Marley entered the brewing world without knowing it would one day contribute to his biggest professional accomplishments (with many more anticipated). After a day of skiing in 2005, Marley went for dinner at the Woodstock Inn & Brewery in Lincoln, NH, where he would eventually have his first brewing position. While working as an Assistant Brewer at the Woodstock Inn and Italian Oasis simultaneously, he attended the American Brewer’s Guild, which offers a craft brewer’s apprenticeship program and education in intensive brewing science and engineering.

The bay side hotel, which re-opened earlier this month after renovations, announced that the $10,000 per night suite would include the cutting edge champagne drone delivery service.
A video posted on the hotel’s Instagram account shows the robotic aircraft safely ferrying two bottles of pricey champagne through the air before making a smooth landing on a patio. READ MORE
