In late January we visited Stoneface Brewing Company in Newington to talk to brewer Pete Beauregard about the company’s New Hampshire roots, their popular IPA, and their clever logo. Guinness the dog showed us a few tricks and co-founder Errol sent us home with a growler of very fresh IPA.
If you live on the seacoast, you may have seen Greta the Growler Getta making her rounds on the weekends. The Granite State Growler Tours, started by childhood friends David and Mark, operate Friday through Sunday and have no shortage of places to stop in the greater seacoast area (including southern Maine). We hopped on […]
It’s been a year since we first met Carl and Mike from the Able Ebenezer Brewing Company. Last January we drove to Carl’s log cabin in Auburn, NH to watch them brew their last five-gallon batch in the garage before moving into their facility in Merrimack, NH. Six months after that, we saw that facility […]
Back in April, we were guests on The Tap Handle Show podcast and interviewed the two hosts, Tim Roberts and Michael Hauptly-Pierce.

A few months ago, when we were in Derry, NH interviewing Eric and Paul at Kelsen Brewing Company, we stopped at Cask and Vine for a late lunch on our way out of town. We’d heard a lot of great things about it (Paul’s recommendation being the latest) and figured it was about time we […]
On June 14th, 2014 — Flag Day and the 239th birthday of the United States Army — Able Ebenezer Brewing Company opened their doors. Carl Soderberg, Zach Rand and Mike Frizzelle, all former Army officers, and their fourth partner, Jim Wilson, welcomed New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan and members of the Merrimack Chamber of Commerce […]

Paul just went full-time last week, which is a similar story we’ve heard from a lot of other great breweries in this […]
