We made Brew Hampshire because we love beer and New Hampshire. We weren’t hired to make it, and we paid for it out of pocket (with the help of our Kickstarter backers). It began as a mini-doc on Throwback Brewery in North Hampton, where Bryant’s cousin Chris was at the time an assistant brewer. From there we met and tracked down other people in the brewing community to help us tell the story of beer in the Granite State. We interviewed people from thirteen breweries, we spoke with distributors, retailers, and tour guides, visited the big breweries and the nanos, and we drank a lot of great beer.
The film played in the 2015 SNOB Film Festival and the 2015 New Hampshire Film Festival, where it won Best New Hampshire Feature Documentary. In 2017, Brew Hampshire aired on PBS in NH, VT, and Maine. It’s available online for purchase directly from the filmmakers (streaming, download, or DVD/Bluray), or through streaming on Fandor.
