Throwback Brewery – Turkey Dat  Hours, Fat Alberta Save the Date, and more!

Help Us Win a NEW Ford Transit!

We recently found out that out of every small business in the nation that applied to win a 2015 Ford Transit, we were selected as one of the top 10 finalists!!! The winner will be decided purely by the number of votes – so please – head on over and vote for us! Once on the page, scroll down to Throwback Brewery, click the check box before the text ‘vote’, scroll down and hit ‘Submit Vote.’ All they will ask you for is your email address. Very simple and easy! (note – it seems to be best to vote via desktop or tablet, not a phone.) Voting is open til the end of November.

Our van is getting pretty old and unreliable, and we would use the new Transit to help us get our beer to stores around here safely and efficiently.

Out of all of the finalists, our entry is a one-of-a-kind poem. For those interested, here is our submission that got us selected as a finalist:

There once were two girls, who loved beer,
So they started a small brewery one year.
They mashed and they boiled
They cleaned and they toiled
brewing beer that inspired people to cheer. (hear hear!)

Their brewery was a throwback
to times in the past
where ingredients were sourced locally
and community ties held fast.
The girls’ small team did it all. Not just making the beer
but the numbers, the sales, the ordering of gear.
They filled bottles, and kegs, and even growlers, too.

Then they’d fill up their cars and deliver the brew.
The customer interactions they held dear
but the transport they feared –
the old van with its whine…the car that’s too small
the truck that’s divine, but for short girls, too tall.

They needed something safe, with much better mileage
that could fit all their beer and match their cool style-age.
They needed dependable, durable, and even Ford tough.
And it needed to work when New Hampshire Winters were rough.

And then one day they saw the new 2015 Transit by Ford
And they looked at each other and their hearts just soared.
This is the vehicle of their dreams, just what their business needs
A gift like this could make them truly succeed!

Turkey Day Hours & Fat Alberta Release Party- Save the Date!

With all of our exciting developments at the brewery (see the Hobbs Farm update below), we’ve been remiss in sending out our special hours for next week (Thanksgiving)! This is by far one of our favorite times of the year to be open. We love when you bring your families and friends by, and we also love recommending what beers should go with which of your Turkey Day dishes. Also, for at least the month of December, we will now be open on Sundays from 1 to 4pm!

Tues, Nov. 25th– 4:00pm-6:00pm
Wed, Nov. 26th– 12:00pm-6:00pm
Thurs, Nov. 27th– CLOSED
Fri, Nov. 28th– 4:00pm-7:00pm
Sat, Nov. 29th– 1:00pm-4:00pm
Sun, Nov. 30th– 1:00pm-4:00pm (NEW hours for the holidays!)

Finally, as we get closer to December, that means that we are getting closer to our Fat Alberta Release Party! For those unfamiliar with our pachyderm friend, Fat Alberta is our decadent chocolate, peanut butter imperial stout that we only brew once a year.

When: Sunday, December 14th, 12:00pm-4:00pm
Throwback Brewery
What can you expect? 

  • Tastes: 4 oz samples of Fat Alberta AND a cask of seasonally-appropriate beer
  • Bottles: 16.9 fl oz bottles of Fat Alberta available for purchase
  • Food: This year, we’ll be joined by Embers Bakery, who will be slinging gourmet pizzas out of their wood-fired oven on premises for the release party. Embers uses local, organic flours to make their delectable sourdough breads and pizzas.

Hobbs Farm Update

As many of you are aware, two years ago we purchased the historic Hobbs Farm in North Hampton, NH, with the intent of moving our current business there. We are delighted to announce that we finally closed on all the loans, and have proceeded full force ahead with the construction! We have many teams working on the Farm at once in order to shoot for an opening date in April of 2015. More details on an exact date will be released as we progress farther with this project.

Even thought we started the project less than a month ago, it is amazing the progress that has happened in such a short period of time. The driveway off of Hobbs Road is almost done and hopefully will be paved next week. The barn has a fresh coat of paint. The bottom of the barn has been excavated a bit, and concrete footings poured. And, most exciting of all for us, the interior of the barn is being cleaned and prepped – concrete animal feeders removed, base boards pulled off, etc. It is such a beautiful barn, and we are so excited for everyone to see the results!

We’ll begin posting updates on the website over the next several weeks. In the meantime, if you stop by our current location, we have one of the architectural diagrams posted that shows more details about what we a planning. We’d be happy to walk you through the plans, just ask!
