Brewing in New Hampshire – POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER

*** The event has been POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER ***
Learn about the history of brewing in New Hampshire paired with a tasting of local beers! On Friday, March 31st, Glenn Knoblock will explore the fascinating history of New Hampshire’s beer and ale brewing industry from Colonial days, when it was home- and tavern-based, to today’s modern breweries and brew pubs. Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state’s earliest brewers, including the renowned Frank Jones. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state are also discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era. Illustrations present evidence of society’s changing attitudes towards beer and alcohol consumption over the years. Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or a “tea-totaler”, this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages. Afterwards, a tasting of New Hampshire beers will be generously provided by Greg & Jane’s Beer & Wine Free at 63 Main Street in Epping. All is free and open to the public!
