There are many fun aspects to owning a brewery… meeting interesting new people, tasting cheese for beer & cheese events, coming up with names for beers… I could go on :) . For me, one of my favorite parts of owning a brewery is collaborating with Annette and team on recipes and flavors, to come up with new beers that […]
Every year in our Unafraid of the Dark III series, we craft a beer that makes a fair number of people say ‘what did you put in the beer???’. The first year we brewed a Bacon Porter that the meat lovers seemed to embrace (but turned off a few vegans.) Last year we crafted a Chocolate Beet Stout that several […]
About 12 years ago, I used to homebrew a beer called Apple Brown Betty. This beer was, of course, made with fresh apples, brown sugar, & cinnamon. At the time, I never measured gravities, so I really had no idea how much the apples added to the alcohol content of the beer. All I knew was that Betty made me very, very […]
This Summer at the Portsmouth Farmers’ Market, we were lucky enough to have our Throwback booth right next to McKenzie’s farm. One day at the market, they brought in the most gorgeous blackberries we had ever seen! We (of course) bought one of the little half-pints, which lasted us all of about 3 minutes.

There are […]

What we don’t really love about this time of year is the chaos of malls and the stress of fighting traffic to find that perfect gift. To that end, we decided […]
She’s making a list. Checking it twice. Doesn’t really care if your naughty or nice! Fat Alberta is coming to town!
Oh, yes, it is that time of year again for Fat Alberta – our heavenly chocolate peanut butter imperial stout! We think this beer is a lot of fun, so we like to have a great time when we […]
Since the jackets have come out and the temperatures have been dipping below 40 degrees, many of you have been asking about Unafraid of the Dark. And, we have been very excited to answer ‘YES – Unafraid of the Dark is coming back!’ This is our favorite time of year because we get to make our favorite kind of […]
We’ve been missing seeing folks at the Summer Farmers’ Markets, so we are delighted that the Winter markets are starting up this week! We will be bringing our bottles, growlettes, and smiling faces to all of the markets at Exeter, most at Rollinsford (we got waitlisted for two of the days), and most at Greenland. Here is a calendar […]
