Admittedly, I didn’t attend as much of Portsmouth Beer Week as I would have liked to this year, but between the (long overdue…) opening of Smuttynose’s Hayseed restaurant, and the Hangover Cure Tour, I think I got my fair share of the action. This post will focus on the Tour, but maybe I’ll blog about Hayseed too… maybe. This is the second year of the Hangover Cure Tour … Continue reading New England Brewery Series – Deciduous Brewing Company/WHYM and Granite State Growler Tour’s 2nd Annual Craft Beer Week Hangover Cure Tour
The city/town of Dover has really been on the up-and-up lately. I’ll admit that growing up we used to call it “dirty Dover,” but the downtown has gained some lovely little shops, and the food and beer scene is definitely promising. Garrison City Beerworks is one of the newest additions to the downtown Dover scene. It was opened two weeks ago, right beside Yeastern Homebrew … Continue reading New England Brewery Series: Garrison City Beerworks (Dover, NH)
I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I had a lovely experience in Londonderry the other day, and wanted to spread the word about this awesome new nano, so I figured I would resurrect the series. From the Barrel is located in an industrial park, maybe a thousand feet down from Moonlight Meadery, and right off of I-93 in Londonderry, NH. The … Continue reading New England Brewery Series: From the Barrel Brewing Company (Londonderry, NH)

The brewery is made up of a fair amount of … Continue reading New England Brewery Series: Allagash Brewing Company (Portland, ME)
Yesterday, my little sister turned 21, and my girlfriend, her brother, and I decided to take my sister out on a good old fashioned brewery tour to celebrate. We began the day at Throwback Brewing in North Hampton, New Hampshire. Throwback is located on a main road, but is housed in a warehouse unit alongside construction companies and other industrial oddities. The location reminded me … Continue reading New England Brewery Series: Throwback Brewery (North Hampton , NH)
In case anyone noticed the change in naming and was scratching their heads, I’ve decided to just review any brewery in the New England area and place it in a “New England Brewery Series” from now on… For this summer, most will be in New Hampshire, but as my recent review of Oxbow shows, some might be from other parts of New England.

Last Saturday my girlfriend and I had the pleasure of visiting Oxbow Brewing Company in New Castle, Maine with our friend. The first thing you notice about Oxbow as you pull into their driveway is that they are kind of off the map, and tucked into a beautiful shady patch of woods. The tasting room’s buidling greets you as you drive into the brewery’s parking … Continue reading New England Brewery Series: Oxbow Brewing Company (Newcastle, ME)
