Mother’s Day, Farm Update, We’re Hiring, Hop Head
Alert, & More!

We can feel the tease of summer in the air, and, with
it, lots of fun events coming up in our beer garden! That
makes us want to staff up – so we are seeking line cooks and dishwashers for our
newly expanded kitchen, plus experienced bartenders up front. More on that
below. But we’re not the only ones excited about the warmer weather.
The animals here (farm animals and employees!) are enjoying the
sunshine, too, as we welcome the newest additions to our growing farm!

Mother’s Day: May 13th,

We’ll be open regular hours
this Sunday so you can treat your ‘farm-fresh food loving’ and/or ‘craft
beer-loving’ mom to some delicious food and drink! We’ll be offering
our full, regular menu that day, plus a few celebratory food and
drink specials (think mimosas and shandies!) for the special ladies in
your life. Want to learn more? Check out the details on
our blog!

We’ll also be hosting our weekly
yoga session
this Sunday at 11am. It’s just $5/person to join –
could be the perfect outing for mom!

ShakesBEERience: June 3rd,

One afternoon. Four plays.
Many ShakesBEERs. Seven Stages Shakespeare Company’s wildly-popular
ShakesBEERience play reading program heads back here for their fifth annual
encore performance!

Professional actors- with script in one hand, beer in the other- will take you
on the journey with the Twelfth
Merchant of Venice, T
Tempest, and
Ado About Nothing!

Come for the whole afternoon, or come for one play– the experience you have is
yours to create. Reserved tickets are required and will be available by early
next week at

What’s New on the Farm: Crops
& Cute Animals Update

lots going on here at Hobbs Farm these days
! We’ve expanded our
menagerie of animals, welcoming five adorable heirloom piglets into
our midst: Chaga, Oyster, Truffle, Chanterelle, and Pork-cini. We added two new
goslings, Charlie Ryan Gosling and Little Ryan Gosling, plus a whole flock
of ducklings! We’ve already farmed out over two acres, added
irrigation, and more! Check out more details on latest farm progress here.

By the way, Seacoast Eat Local’s weekly farm markets are open for
the season, too – you can find us every Thursday in Exeter from 2:15-6pm in
Swasey Park and Saturdays in Portsmouth from 8am-1pm. We bring filled growlettes
you can swap out for your empty ones, and also plenty of cans for sale, plus our
very own Hobbs Farm Beer Mustard and Blueberry Apple Jam!

Join our Team!
Warm weather means new hires!
We are looking for full and part time dishwashers, line cooks,
and experienced bartenders to join our team. If you can hustle, are extremely friendly,
and take pride in doing an excellent job, you could be a great fit here! No
phone calls, please. If you are interested in applying please send your
resume to

Hop Head

Here’s some news that should make our hop-loving
friends happy! Coming back on tap by the end of next week are two of our most
popular hoppy beers: Cashmere Track Suit
(8.4% ABV New England Style Double IPA) andHoppy Oat Lucky
(5.7% ABV Hoppy Oat IPA). In our tasting of both of these beers, we think
these batches are the best yet!

addition, given how much fun we had making all of the experimental IPAs for our
Hoppin’ Summer Series I and II, and,
given how much you guys seemed to love the beers, we are doing it again! You can
look forward to Hoppin’ Summer Series III, which will start off with us
releasing a New England Style Donkey (Hote) in June. In July, you can look
forward to a beer we are calling  777 – a  7% ABV hoppy beer to
celebrate our 7th birthday, which will also feature 7 different hops and 7
different malts. The final two beers in the series are being worked on, but we
can tell you that the August beer will be tart & tasty (think on the sour
spectrum), and the September beer will be a bright and lemony IPA to celebrate
the end of Summer.

Not a fan of hops? Don’t worry – we have plenty of fun beer for you in the
works, including a berliner weisse coming out in the next two weeks, which we
plan to serve here at the pub with your choice of a few different syrups!

Paddy’s Day, Maple Madness, The Learned Pint, CSA, & More!


St. Patrick’s Day Events, 3rd Annual Maple
Madness, The Learned Pint Speaker Series, & More!

March brings lots of exciting events to the brewery –
some annual traditions and some new! We’ll be kicking off a speaker
series titled The Learned Pint, where we’ll be bringing in three
experts on three different dates to share their expertise on nurturing our
environment and our spirits this spring. The end of the month brings maple
sugaring and all its sweet goodness, including our third annual Maple
event with local sugar house Syrup by the Sea on the
Sunday of NH Maple Weekend. And, next week, we’re sure to all be just a little
Irish as we welcome St. Patrick’s Day with a pre-party featuring an authentic
Irish music session on Thursday and a culinary celebration on the 17th with a
special beer flight, Irish menu specials, and more.

Day plans at our Pre-St Patrick’s Day Party,
when we’ll be unveiling our very first Irish
Red Ale
– a mild classic Irish Red crafted with balance in
mind – a touch of roasted malts to give it a gorgeous reddish rust color and a
light caramel sweetness. Just enough Mt. Hood and Willamette hops to add some
light citrus and tea notes. And a balanced body to make it appropriate to
pair with meaty Irish stews and pies, yet still remain highly drinkable and

From 6:30-8:30pm, we’ll host an authentic Irish
session with Penhallow.
A traditional celtic band centered in Portsmouth,  Penhallow consists
of veteran session players who frequent the many Irish sessions around the
seacoast and beyond.

And it wouldn’t be a celebration of all things Irish
without the food! Look for traditional Irish menu specials, such as a reuben,
lamb stew made with our delicious Stout Stout, and of course our Shepherd’s Pie!
This event is free and for all ages.

Saturday, March
St. Patrick’s Day!

We’ll have Irish Menu specials all day including
a traditional
boiled dinner

flight includes 4-ounce pours of our new Irish Red Ale, Irish Red
with Wine Blossom Cask, Stout Stout, and 5-Minute Fugitive Russian
Imperial Stout. Come on out and toast to old Eire. Slainte!

thought you might be interested, too!

this spring. All are welcome and there is no cost, we just ask that you RSVP through our Eventbrite page so we know how many of you
to expect. Want to learn more? Check out our

March 21st – Let’s Talk Fish
with Gabriella Bradt, PhD, UNH.
This session will take a look at what’s happening in today’s New Hampshire
fisheries and the future of this historic industry. As a farm to table
restaurant with a passion for supporting local industries, we feel that
sustainable practices and support of our native fishermen and women is vital to
their survival. Gabby is passionate about speaking about local seafood and
the state of our local fisheries and what we – as NH residents – can/should
do to keep our fishing heritage alive and our fish in our local seafood

Sunday, March 25th, 12-4pm: 3rd Annual Maple

Portsmouth Beer Week Events, Including The 7th Annual
Chocolate, Cheese, & Beer Event

*** We are closing today, Wednesday, February 7th due
to the snow. Hopefully you guys stay nice and warm and enjoy this email of
upcoming events! ***

brings the start of Portsmouth Beer
– a 10-day celebration of the local craft beer scene here on
the seacoast. We hope you’ll join us for one of our many fun events during the
week, such as our annual Chocolate, Cheese,
& Beer Pairing Event

on Wednesday, February 28th @ 6pm. You are not going to want to miss this
one! Here’s the lineup of what we have planned so

Saturday, February 24th, 11am-9pm: Cask vs. Draft vs.

it’s just the beer geeks in us, but we love seeing how one beer can taste so
different depending on how it is served (cask, nitro, draft) or what hops are
used. Based on the popularity of our past Cask vs. Draft vs. Nitro events, you
guys get a kick out of these kind of fun beer comparisons, too! So please join
us on Saturday, February 24
th, when we
are offering a limited edition sample tray of our Playlist beer, consisting of
Playlist 00:02 on draft, on cask, and on nitro, plus Playlist 00:01 on draft –
so you can see how different a beer can taste when the hops are changed
up. Each limited edition sample tray will come with one voting card-
vote for your favorite, and we’ll
give you $1 off a pint of that beer!

Wednesday, February
28th, 6pm:
7th Annual Chocolate, Cheese, & Beer

year, we like to play with and push the culinary possibilities of pairing
hand-crafted chocolate and thoughtfully selected cheeses from local New England
and NY artisans with our farm-fresh beers.

This year marks the 7th
offering of this event, and we continue to be inspired by all the magical ways
we can pair chocolate, cheese, and beer. The menu is almost complete and the first draft includes
goodies like Flying Goat pub cheese
ball encrusted with Enna Chocolate’s cocoa nibs, Spring Brook Farm (Arlington,
Ashbrook cheese soufflé with Enna Chocolate’s cocoa
& our vegetable ash, house-made chocolate cruller with maple
cream, fried cheese curds with muhammara, house-made whipped hop honey, plus –
more chocolate and cheese! Check out this page for more details on the menu. We’ll be
updating it as we finalize the beers as well.

As always, ticket price is INCLUSIVE of tax and
gratuity. So grab your seat
as this event has a history of selling out quickly! (Makes a
great Valentine’s gift, too!) And, yes, chocolate, cheese, and beer make
for a most lovely dinner.

March 2nd: A Spirit-ed Celebration with Sea

year, Portsmouth Beer Week ends up being not just about craft beer, but about
community and friendship as well. To that end, we thought, why not invite one of
our favorite neighbors over for an event? Come join us on Friday, March 2nd for
a spirit-ed celebration with local distiller Ron Vars of Sea Hagg fame. Ron will be here at 6pm,
but we will be highlighting three of his spirits (Sea Hagg Blueberry Rum, Ice Pik Vodka, and Rocky Peak Cinnamon Whiskey) in
various food and drink specials all day. Rumor has it that there maybe a
cask of our Stout, Stout infused with the cinnamon whiskey and potentially a
barrel-aged stout as well!

March 4th: Smokin’ Sunday

visit us here at Hobbs Farm for a day of smoked beers, BBQ food specials, and a
fire in our beer garden! Special beers that day will include a one-off keg of
Chipotle Dippity Do, a special cask of Smoked Peach Pilsener, and the return of
one of our favorite beers – our Campfire Smoked Robust Porter.

Also, during
Portsmouth Beer week, we’ll be serving up the Collaboration Belgian IPA we made
with the 17 other breweries in and around the seacoast. More information on this
beer can be found here.

Hope to see you here during Portsmouth Beer Week, and
hopefully even earlier! We’ve got a really fun lineup of beers on right now –
running the gambit from very light to a very Stout Stout!

Playlist Pale Ale

We love music
here at the brewery (almost) as much as we love beer. So we decided to mix
things up with a new Pale Ale beer series called Playlist – perfect for spinning
some tunes while you sip.

Each beer in the series will feature a
variation on a theme – using the same base Pale Ale recipe (which includes oats,
2-Row and Pilsen malt from Valley Malt, plus honey malt) then, just like
when making good music, we’ll switch things up to keep it fresh every time we
brew. One batch will vary the hops and the next will change up the

This week we introduce Playlist 00:01– featuring
a healthy dose of Citra, Sorachi Ace, El Dorado, XJA2-436, and Southern Star
hops, plus Conan yeast. It’s got a candied hop aroma, yet drinks quite dry, with
notes of pineapple, melon, and a touch of citrus. It weighs in at 6.2% ABV and
53 IBU. On tap now!

Throwback Brewery News Letter

Mug Club Openings, Rock On Beer Release Party, New Brews, & More!

Hope everyone is having as good of a Summer as we are! In this email, we cover some of our July events as well as new beers and openings in our mug club. We hope to see you here to enjoy this amazing weather in our beer garden. Cheers!

Limited Mug Club Openings Now Available
Interested in becoming a member of our mug club? Well, now is your time – we are opening up at least 10 spots to make room for you!

The inaugural year of our Throwback Brewery Mug Club has been such a success, and in such high demand (thank you!), that we thought – why not expand it and make room for a few more?

So, if you haven’t heard the perks of membership yet, or are a current member who hasn’t yet re-upped, here is a recap of the special privileges that await for our lucky mug club members in year two!

Membership Privileges – Exclusive Benefits of the Throwback Brewery Mug Club include:
– Mug Sized Beers (19oz) at regular 16oz pint prices
– 25% off Throwback merchandise.
– A free burger (or veggie burger) & a beer during your birthday week!
– One free mug of beer to celebrate your initiation or renewal
– 10% off your food and beer order during Thursday and Friday lunches (
– Exclusive Mug Club-only appreciation events. In year 1, we had a behind the scenes tour of our farm and brewery, plus a Winter social with tasty snacks from Chef Carrie. We have more fun ideas for year 2!
– First access to limited bottle releases or special beer dinners and events before they go on sale to the public. This coming year, we will give mug club members first access to purchase our Fat Alberta chocolate peanut butter imperial stout. Also, like last year, instead of a bottle limit of 4, you can purchase up to 6 bottles if you choose.
– Bragging rights for helping to fund our big list of projects. In 2016, we used the mug club membership fees to buy and install acoustic tiles!

To learn even more about our mug club, click here.

Beer Release and Concert – Tuesday, July 18th!
When the non-profit Rock On Foundation asked that we brew a beer with them to support their Rock On Fest (featuring a bunch of female-led bands), how could we say no? Also, never one to really need an excuse for a party, we also thought ‘why not throw a release party here of this limited edition collaborative beer called Master of Art Saison?’! So come on by Throwback Brewery on Tuesday, July 18th from 6-9pm for the release of this beer plus a free show from Boston’s Damn Tall Buildings – a kick butt, folksy bluegrass band!

Note – this is a free event, but will be capped at ~200 for capacity reasons. Please make sure to grab a ticket on eventbrite if you would like to go!

About the Rock On Foundation. Founded by brothers Luke Bonner and Matt Bonner, Rock On Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that serves to enrich the quality of life in communities by supporting athletic, artistic, and scholastic initiatives.

New Beers!
On our 6th birthday party, we released
Kelly Likes Hops IPL – a hoppy lager, also known as an India Pale Lager. This beer is super crisp and clear with a full hop bouquet and taste – melon, grapefruit peel, with a bit of hop dank-ness. Some of you might be very surprised to learn that it’s a lager! This is the second beer in our Hoppin’ Summer Series – the first was Cashmere Track Suit (which has already come and gone, but you can expect it to make an appearance again early Fall!). In August, we are releasing a dry-hopped, tart blonde ale. And, finally, in September, you can look forward to a dry-hopped sumac sour!

Today, we ‘watermeloned’ our blonde ale – so look forward to Watta Melon by this Saturday.

Next Tuesday, July 18th at 6pm, come celebrate the release of Master of Art Saison – a hazy, golden-colored, dry saison with a big tangerine nose and flavors of tangerine, peach, and apricot – balanced by a kick of peppery spice from the saison yeast. This beer received its name as a tribute to indie-rocker Laura Stevenson who will be headlining Rock On Fest in downtown Concord, NH on Sat, August 12th – a festival boasting live music, basketball, family fun, outdoor yoga, an outdoor movie, and our beer!

And, finally, coming up for the 4th Annual NH Brewers Fest, we are brewing a special beer – a fruit-forward grisette. Light and drinkable at 4.6% ABV! For those of you without plans on July 22nd, we highly recommend this beer fest! There will ne more NH brews flowing than any other brewfest across the State. With OVER 40 of NH’s craft breweries hard at work to make this year’s festival the biggest offering yet- with special releases, collaborations, and several seasonals available. And let’s not forget how many of NH brewers and assistant brewers will be on site and pouring their brews! So grab a ticket, and come try our special release for this fest, and say ‘hi’ to Throwback co-founder Nicole.

Updates from our Head Brewer

Over the past month, we have received many queries along the lines of “hey, when is your Campfire Smoked Robust Porter going to be ready??”. As many of you know, this beer is a labor of love for us, as we smoke the grain on applewood in order to give it that rich, apple-ly smoked goodness. It takes some time to make, but, it is all worth it! Well, I am happy to report that the beer is now being carbonated, and we should have it on tap next week!
As it is getting a bit colder, we have also been getting lots of queries about Fat Alberta – our chocolate peanut butter imperial stout. We are brewing Fat Alberta this week, which puts us at about the second week of December for its release. As in past years, we’ll mark the occasion with a fun little release party on December 13th, featuring some complementary food as well!
On tap starting this week, we have some of my favorite beers we do all year, including our Fall Seasonal – Chai Porter – which we make with the spicy, warming chai tea from White Heron in Portsmouth, NH. Also on tap now is our Peach Wit (called Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Peach), which tastes like a fresh picked peach. Our Just Beet Wit has such a beautiful fuchsia color and light, earthy taste. And, our lightly spiced, super drinkable, toasted pumpkin seed tasting Gourdgeous Pumpkin Ale, made from 450 lbs of roasted pumpkin from Blueberry Bay Farm.
Since our last email, we have quickly blown through the first batches we had done on our new system, including Spicy Bohemian, Hopstruck, Hank’s Pale Ale, and Donkey-Hote Double IPA, but, never fear, our next batches are already online.
Next email, I’ll give a sneak peak at the beers we are thinking about for Unafraid of the Dark V!
Until then.. Cheers!

Back to the Future & Our Brew House Theatre

For those of you that have visited our brewery & pub, you probably have noted that there are no televisions gracing the walls. For the most part, we think this has been a great decision, as it seems to encourage more conversation and community. There are, however, certain occasions where we wish we had a screen- such as big Patriots or Sox games, or, perhaps, the watching of Back to the Future on Wednesday, October 21st.
As such, we just bought a nice large screen and a projector, and set them up in our Brew House! The first of hopefully many Brew House theatre showings will be Back to The Future II. The show is free and starts at 6:30pm tomorrow (Wed, Oct 21st). You are more than welcome to order food and drinks and enjoy them while watching the show. Stay tuned for more Brew House viewings, including upcoming Pat games as well Brew Hampshire: the recently released, beautifully crafted movie on NH beer and breweries.
We hope to see you at the farm!
–Annette & Nicole

Chef’s Corner

With the change in seasons from Summer to Fall, we have also updated our menu to highlight the Fall harvest, to bring a bit more comfort food to the mix, and to add some great food options for kids. Some of my favorite items on the new menu include a Squash Soup we make using the beautiful and tasty red kuri squash from Wake Robin Farm and Brookford Farm. We roast the squash and blend it with the flavors of Fall – apple, ginger, a touch of nutmeg – and finish it with crispy kale and a touch of chai sour cream.
New sandwiches include the brisk-wich, a hearty meal made with brisket we smoke on applewood for over 12 hours. This paired with our cheesy grits as a side is the perfect supper on a nice crisp evening.
For those who like a bit more heat, you should definitely try our Chorizo Bowl- spicy, house-made chorizo mixed with rice, topped with avocado, cilantro, cabbage, and a fried egg, and then finished with our adobo broth and poblano goat cheese yogurt. This dish pairs very well with most beer, including our Spicy Bohemian and Donkey-Hote Double IPA.
Finally, Sundays is Chef’s Whim – where we come up with three or so new menu items focused on a particular theme. This Sunday, October 25th we are going back to one of our favorite themes – Breakfast for Dinner! On the menu will be house-made lox with all the fixings, pumpkin waffles, and biscuits & gravy. Can’t wait!
Bon Appétit

Private Events & Other Fun Happenings

Since we’ve opened at our new location in July, we have been pleasantly surprised by the many private event inquiries we have had. Already we have hosted corporate events, birthday parties, a Jack & Jill, a Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, and more! Most of these events we have held in our Brew House, where our tanks are located and the beer-making magic happens. The Brew House is also one of the most spectacular places to relax and hang out on the property, as it is open all the way up to the top of the barn, so guests are treated to the beautiful atmosphere of the post & beam architecture. We are already booking up for Holiday parties in December, so if anyone is interested in learning more, please email Nicole as soon as you can.
In terms of other events:
– We are open from 11am to 9pm on Halloween. Bring the kids by for trick or treating –  our team will be dressed for the holiday, and the brewery will be spookily decorated, too!
– Come out and support our local food community under the harvest moon next Tuesday, October 27th at Applecrest Farm Bistro. This all-inclusive ‪#‎PigRoast‬ and ‪#‎NHBeer‬ fest should be one for the books! It”s also an awesome fundraiser for Seacoast Eat Local who keeps us eating local all year long. There are a few tickets left- get them here.
– Our next Book Club Meeting on November 29th at 1pm. We will be reading How To Be Both by Ali Smith.

Throwback News Letter

Throwback Brewery – Spicy Bohemian is back, Chef’s Whim, Restaurant update, and more!

Updates from our Head Brewer

The biggest news from the brewhouse is that over the past several months we have transitioned from our small, 3-BBL brewhouse that I cobbled together myself, to our brand new 15-BBL brewhouse. There are plenty of benefits to the new system, including better hop utilization and a closed boil that better captures the flavor in the beer. Just wait til you try the wit coming out in a few weeks- the orange peel really pops!

In terms of what we have on tap now, first, let me start off with Spicy Bohemian. Yes, it is back! The peppers were added to our Love Me Long Time Pilsener base. This batch of Pils came out super crisp and refreshing, making the Spicy just as refreshing and drinkable – but with a kick!

Another fan favorite- Donkey-Hote Double IPA – was kegged up yesterday and now available on tap. We are also super thrilled with this batch – it is juicy, citrusy, and, yet, extremely well balanced.

Besides Donkey and Spicy, we have Hog Happy Hefeweizen, Dippity Do brown ale, Hank’s Pale Ale, and Hopstruck Red IPA on tap. Maple-Kissed Wheat Porter will be ready tomorrow. And, in the fermenters we have a Wit that we will split and add local peaches to one half and then beets to the other half (to make Just Beet Wit).

Coming up over the next several months, you will see bottles of Figgin’ Forty – our chocolate fig baltic porter, barrel-aged Gourdgeous Pumpkin Ale, and, by year end, cans of Spicy and more!


Rocking and Rolling at Hobbs Farm

Hello, everyone! We just noticed that we haven’t sent out an email update since May. Oops. 🙂 As most of you know, we have been super busy launching the restaurant at Hobbs Farm and getting our new 15 BBL system up and running. It has been a ton of work, but also so much fun and deeply rewarding at the same time. We would like to sincerely thank all of you that have supported us in our move and have given us many warm reviews about the food and ambiance at our new location. We put a lot of time and love into this place, and it means so much to us to see so many of you enjoying this space with your friends and families.

If you haven’t been to the restaurant yet, we would love for you to visit! You can find our latest, seasonal food menu here. We also do several unique and tasty specials a week. Sunday’s are Chef’s Whim, which you can read about below. For a bit more on our food and space, you can check out the great writeup that came out yesterday in the local paper.

At our new space, we are also open longer hours now – Wednesday and Thursday nights 4-9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 11am to 9pm, and Sundays 12-7pm. You can fill you growlers during any of those times, or stop by and have a pint. As we bring on more staff (like dish washers), we will expand our hours even more. Speaking of, if you know of anyone interested in washing dishes, please email to let us know!

Hope to see you soon!

–Annette & Nicole

Chef’s Whim – Let’s Get Spicy!

We feel pretty lucky to have landed such a talented chef as Carrie Dahlgren. We feel even more lucky that on Sundays she exercises her creativity and artistry with something we call Chef’s Whim. On Sundays (12-7), Chef Carrie adds several new and inventive items to our menu, all under a unique theme. So far we have had themes such as ‘Breakfast for Dinner’ (with House made Breakfast Sausage Egg Sandwich,

Eggs Benedict- Hobbs Farm Style – with freshly made english muffins, and Spent Grain French Toast with native Blueberry Maple Syrup.) One of our recent favorites was ‘Fun on the Bayou’ with golden fried beignets, house made smoked andouille sausage in a soul warming gumbo, and comforting, cheesy shrimp & grits.

Since we just released the latest batch of Spicy Bohemian, the theme this Sunday, Sept 13th will be ‘Let’s Get Spicy’. So far, we know we are doing the following (there may be more! :):

Jalapeno braised pork empanadas with smoked corn salsa
House smoked brisket, sweet corn cheesy grits, jalapeno jam, sliced tomatoes.

Trust us when we say that these inventive dishes are worth a Sunday trip!

Upcoming Events and other fun happenings

The impending Fall means a few things, including lots of beer fests, and, fresh hops! The small amount of hops we harvested from our burgeoning hop yard will be used this year in casks that will be served in both our pub and at the Coat of Arms in Portsmouth, NH. Stay tuned for an email or to Facebook / Twitter for more details on that.

In terms of events, we will be at the sold out Passport event at Strawbery Banke on September 19th. We will pair our Peach Wit with a house-made smoked chicken boudin (sausage). On September 20th, we will be at the Heirloom Harvest Barn dinner with both beer and an appetizer. The 20th at 1pm is also our next book club meeting, where we will be reading Fun Home by Alison Bechdel.

Finally, in September, we are beginning to book up for private events. So far we have booked everything from small family celebrations to larger birthday parties, baby showers, corporate events, weddings and more! If you are interested in a private event at Throwback Brewery, please call (603 379 2317) or email us.

Notes from Annette

Hi, everyone. Annette here with a quick update on some of our newest beers and also some that we have in the queue. First up, the beer that seems to be on everyone’s mind – Fat Alberta. We definitely brought the nut this year – such a rich peanut aroma and flavor, combined with that backbone of chocolate.. mmmmm…our team is super happy with this year’s batch, and we hope you are too!.

New on tap at the brewery now is one of our favorites – Chipotle Porter. For those of you that like heat, this beer is for you. It is hot in a different way than Spicy Bohemian – more warming heat than big pepper spice. It does have a kick, so we recommend pairing it with stews, burgers, heartier fare like steaks, and, of course, chocolate!

And just in time for holiday festivities, Merry! Happy! Dreid-Ale!, our cranberry ginger ale, is back on tap. Come by this week to fill up on this easy drinking festive ale.

Finally, on December 12th, to coincide with the opening of the skating rink at Strawbery Banke, we will have a cask (pin) of our Stout #3 dry hopped with fennel flowers from the gardens at Strawbery Banke. We are looking forward to tapping this beer there.
