There’s nothing like capping off a great day of hunting, snowmobiling, hiking or paddling in some of the most beautiful wilderness on the East Coast than by kicking back at your cabin with a well-crafted cold one.
New Hampshire is a goldmine for high-quality craft breweries, and Granite Staters take pride in their exceptional local beers. To capture a true New Hampshire experience, enjoy a beer that you can only have around these parts. Here are a few of New Hampshire’s best local breweries for those post-adventure brews.
Moat Mountain (www.moatmountain.com) – The Moat Mountain Smoke House opened as a restaurant and brewery in North Conway in 2000. They began canning their beers in 2013, and today you can get such brews as their Bone Shaker Brown Ale and their ultra-popular Iron Mike Pale Ale in 16-ounce cans.
Tuckerman Brewing Company (www.tuckermanbrewing.com) – Tuckerman has been a cornerstone of the New Hampshire craft beer scene for two decades. They brew in Conway, and their beers include their Rockpile IPA, 6288 Stout and Headwall Alt.
603 Brewery (www.603brewery.com) – Opened in Londonderry in 2012, 603 Brewery has rapidly grown into one of the state’s most popular breweries. They hand craft ales on a 15 barrel steam-fired system, and their offerings include their Winni Amber Ale, Granite Stout, NH Ale and Wood Devil Double IPA.
Woodstock Inn Brewery (www.woodstockinnnh.com/brewery) – This brewery in Woodstock, New Hampshire has been around since the mid-1990s. They offer a large selection of beers, including their 4000 Footer IPA, Pemi Pale Ale and their popular Pig’s Ear Brown Ale.
Stoneface Brewing (http://www.stonefacebrewing.com/) – Brewed in Newington, Stoneface offers a wide variety of beer styles at their brewery. You can get their India Pale Ale, Porter and American Pale Ale in easily-portable cans.
Schilling Brewery (http://schillingbeer.com/) – Schilling Brewery in Littleton is the embodiment of a dream that four brothers and a father conceived over a decade ago — an aspiration to spend their days together pursuing family, community and excellence through crafting the finest artisanal European-inspired beers.
While most of these beers are available in bottles and cans at local stores, there’s nothing like the taste of a fresh beer straight from the brewery. Grab your own Lopstick growlers, available in our gift shop, and fill them up right at the breweries.
