Brew Hampshire Summer Update

After our January interview with Pete Beauregard of Stoneface Brewing Co., we moved our focus to scripting the film and starting to edit. Of course, documentary production and post-production are never that neat and distinct, so we hit the road again in the summer to do some pick-ups. One major […]

Keene Beer Festival

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 […]

Able Ebenezer Check-in #4

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 […]

White Birch Brewing

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 […]

Canterbury Aleworks

You wouldn’t expect a one barrel brewery to have eight beers on tap, but you wouldn’t expect an English pub-style tap room in the woods of Canterbury, NH, either. But Steve Allman isn’t about the expected. Canterbury Aleworks is on Allman’s farm, in a structure he initially built as a wood […]

The Tap Handle Show

Word of mouth works. We visited Tom Albright of Out.Haus Ales in Northwood, NH in February. Shortly after that, Tom was on the Tap Handle Show podcast and told them about us and Brew Hampshire. And yesterday we recorded an episode of the Tap Handle Show with hosts Tim Roberts and Michael […]

603 Brewery

What could be more New Hampshire than the 603 Brewery? It started with Dan Leonard’s home brew recipes in college and grew from there. He and his friends and fellow engineering grads, Geoff and Tamsin Hewes, opened the brewery in 2012 and they’ve been going strong since. As the 603 […]

Able Ebenezer Brewing Company

We first met Carl, Mike and Zack back in early January. It was an unseasonably warm winter day and they were doing one last home brew batch in their garage in Auburn, NH. A few weeks later, we went to their Merrimack, NH location to film their stakeholders’ tasting. At […]

Smuttynose Brewing Company

It was a full day today for the Brew Hampshire team. This morning we met up with JT Thompson, minister of propaganda for Smuttynose Brewing Company, at their Heritage Avenue location in Portsmouth, NH. The building was briefly the home of the Frank Jones Brewing Company before it went bankrupt […]

Scott Schaier

Today we interviewed Scott Schaier, executive director of the Beer Distributors of New Hampshire. He talked to us about Brew New Hampshire, a non-profit venture with the Granite State Brewers Association, aimed at generating beer tourism in the state.  Scott says part of enjoying craft beer is learning the story behind […]

7th Settlement Brewery

We were back in Dover today to visit 7th Settlement Brewery, a farm-to-table restaurant and brewpub. We were there in January to interview Michael Snyder, founder of their sister brewery, One Love Brewery. The two breweries have a co-op system, taking turns on the brewing system and keeping a rotation of […]
