ShadowView Brewing gets its name from an ancient Celtic festival, Imbolc, that was celebrated on February 1 to mark the beginning of spring. The holiday, halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, involved watching the weather to try and predict the rest of the year. Sunny, shadow-making weather was considered a bad omen, as it meant the crone Cailleach was out gathering firewood for a long winter; but cloudy weather – the type that would keep Woodstock Willy from seeing his shadow – meant Cailleach was staying in, and the winter would soon end. Brothers John and Mark Koziol have brought the spirit of this rich heritage and the traditional Irish Pub to Woodstock, a gathering place to meet friends, old and new, and enjoy a locally crafted beer.
