One of my favorite things about this year’s Unafraid of the Dark V series is how each beer is so unique and so different from each other. The first beer we unveiled – our Plum Porter – is a big, robust, full-bodied beer with rich port-like notes. This week we go the other direction, with a beer that we think is equally […]
Some of our favorite, most inventive, and most flavorful beers that we have ever done have all started with someone reaching out to us and saying “Hey, I have an excess of <something yummy>, do you want it?” Cinnamon sticks used to make Flag Hill spiced rum? You betcha! Summer ripe, bursting-with-flavor peaches? Yes! Grapes from a fallen arbor? Of course! Crisp […]
One fine Saturday morning in May a few years back, we were reading the local paper and found this little gem in it (in the police log section):
Friday, May 24. 8 p.m.: Police received a report of a donkey being left outside in the rain on Elm Road. Police checked the area and could not locate any animal left […]

**Update May 29, 2015** Listen to the NHPR interview with co-founder Nicole about this beer.
Did you ever meet someone, and you just clicked? And, even though you might not have know that person that well, or spent time with that person outside of work or even one-on-one, you had a connection? Well, for Annette and myself, that is how […]

When I was in 6th grade, I was very into Michael Jackson. In fact, one of my fondest memories was taking a dance class where we did our recital to Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’. I still smile just thinking about it.
So, when it came time to naming our latest beer – a Belgian-style White (or Wit), enhanced with an heirloom […]
My dog Hank was a pretty special guy. Super mellow. Loved to hang outside all day, relax, and watch the world go by. He would ‘fish’ for hours at the lake – never catching anything, but delighting in the whole experience of spending the day in the sun and water. I never really realized it until he was gone, but Hank […]
Sometimes the best inventions start out by accident – chocolate chip cookies, post-it notes, penicillin, the slinky, and, now, our raspberry wheat beer – Berry Occidental :). Although this beer is a happy accident (story below), it tastes like we put all of our effort into creating the most refreshing, drinkable, summery beer in the market. Berry Occidental is […]
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 […]
