New Hampshire Craft Beer Week (April 6-15, 2018) is a celebration of the Granite State’s artfully-craft ales and lagers and the people and businesses who make and sell them. There’s really no better way to unlock more of New Hampshire’s beer culture than joining this critical mass of happenings. This year’s event slate will feature more than 150 events at breweries, beer stores, restaurants, and bars in every part of the state.
With 5.25 breweries in the state for every 100,000 residents, New Hampshire is busting at the seams with locally-brewed beer and the industry around it is growing too; a recent statewide economic analysis shows beer is a $359 million business: there is probably a lot you’re missing out on.
If you’re not into the statistical side of things, just follow the NH Craft Beer Week Facebook page so you know what events are taking place. That’s the official list. Whether you discover a new brewery in your town, enjoy your first beer dinner, or get more stamps in your brewery passport, there’s no better way to shake off your winter hibernation and hit the road! Especially welcome are beer drinkers from our neighboring states- Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont. You’ll be amazed at what’s happening right across the border, so come say hello.
Let’s Talk Beer and The Tap Handle Show, native New Hampshire beer podcasts, will be out in full force at events all week, broadcasting stories from around the state. Make sure to follow them on your favorite podcast app to heighten your sense of FOMO.
