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.
We met Bert Bingel recently at the SNOB Film Festival in Concord, clad in a kilt with an ‘IPA’ belt buckle. We went to his store, Bert’s Better Beers in Hooksett, NH on December 1st to interview him about all things beer in New Hampshire.
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 […]
A few days ago we visited Kelsen Brewery based out of Derry, New Hampshire. Paul and Erik are the sole owners and operators, who recently launched the brewery back in March of 2014. Paul just went full-time last week, which is a similar story we’ve heard from a lot of other great breweries in this […]
Henniker Brewing Company boasts of being located in the only Henniker on Earth. The brewery is located in the former home of owner David Currier’s medical supply warehouse, which has now been repurposed into a beer manufacturing facility. That may sound like a large operation, but Henniker Brewing Company is just five people. Head brewer […]
Brewtopia, Keene’s craft beer and home-brew supply store, celebrated its third year today.

Owner Zack Cooper, his girlfriend Katie, and Brewtopia employee Zachary took care of the dozens and dozens of […]
It was a short drive to our shooting location today— it was the Keene Beer Festival, right in our own town. The weather was lousy, but the indoor festival was packed. We caught up with Throwback and 603, and met folks from Kelsen Brewery, Henniker Brewery, and the Granite State Growler Tours. Special thanks to […]
The launch date for The Able Ebenezer Brewing Company is coming up fast (June 14th!), so we’ve been trying to catch major updates on the brewery as they work towards their launch day. Marketing Manager Jim Wilson was visiting New Hampshire today (from his usual residency in Texas), so we grabbed a quick interview with him […]
Bill Herlicka, White Birch Brewing’s founder, might have logged our longest interview yet. We’d heard Bill a while back on the Tap Handle Show podcast and knew we wanted to talk to him— and talk to him we did. Bill first ventured off the light lager path in college with Guinness, then picked up a […]

But Steve Allman isn’t about the expected. Canterbury Aleworks is on Allman’s farm, in a structure he initially built as a wood shop. The brewery is wood-fired […]
