Description:

Great North Aleworks has been a dream of Rob & Lisa’s for many years. Rob has been a long-time homebrewer and after rediscovering the craft back in 2007, he immersed himself in the hobby. Lisa was always extremely happy with the outcome and even talked Rob into teaching her how to brew some creations of her own.

Around that same time, both Rob & Lisa became active members of the New Hampshire homebrew club Brew Free or Die and began entering their beers in competitions. Rob did well in those competitions, including being crowned four-time Brewer of the Year at the New England Regional Homebrew Competition, taking a silver medal in the final round of the 2013 National Homebrew Competition, and twice making the semi-finals of the Sam Adams Long Shot Competition. In 2010 Rob won the Samuel Adams Patriot Homebrew Competition which gave him the opportunity to brew his beer at the Sam Adams brewery in Boston and have it served on tap at Gillette Stadium for the 2010 New England Patriots season.

Rob has also achieved a National rank in the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) and Lisa has earned the level of Certified Beer Server in the Cicerone Certification Program.

By 2011, it was time to make the dream a reality; Rob and Lisa decided that Rob would leave his day job in the IT world to pursue opening a brewery. Shortly after leaving the corporate world, Rob spent the majority of 2013 working as the first Assistant Brewer at Newburyport Brewing Company, all the while perfecting his recipes, searching for a location, and refining the business plan.

Tamworth Distillery
 

 

 

 

 

Location:
15 CLEVELAND HILL RD, TAMWORTH, NH 03886

Hours:

THURSDAY – SUNDAY: 12PM – 5PM

MONDAY – WEDNESDAY: CLOSED

Description:

Our story is as old as America itself, planting our flag in the heart of a historic New Hampshire village. We’ve set up our distillery in accordance to the land around us, not against it. What we take, we give back. And what we have, we give to you. Taking a cue from the 19th century Transcendentalists of New England, we pull our inspiration and our ingredients from the environment that surrounds us. From start to finish, each spirit embodies our scratch made ethos: local, house-milled grain, pure White Mountain water, herbs and botanicals from the woods and our garden, and local fruits and vegetables.

Our 250-gallon copper still was custom built by Vendome in Kentucky and outfitted with a brandy helmet, whiskey column, gin basket, and rectifying column. These components give us the versatility to produce a variety of different products and change batches with the seasons.

Unlike many producers of craft spirits, we distill our own neutral grain spirit base (rather than purchasing it from an industrial producer) from local organic corn, organic rye, and malt. All of our grains are sourced from farms within a ~150-mile radius during the harvest season, and milled in-house, on-demand, for the freshest flavor.

Tamworth’s water comes from the Ossipee Stratified Aquifer, one of the purest sources on the East Coast. More importantly, it lies on granite bedrock — you cannot frack in granite, so this pure source is safe from that type of industrial pollution.

Our distillery test kitchen serves as a hub for experiments and innovations that fuel our creativity. Many of the ingredients used are sourced from local farms or our own backyard botanical gardens. For flavors that can only be found in the wild, we’ll forage from our other backyard­–the rich New Hampshire wilderness.

Each small batch, scratch made spirit is a taste of our home, and a result of the work of partners large and small: from honeybees and gardeners to farmers and distillers. Our recipes are born from the crops we grow and the histories buried in the soil below.

Be sure to visit the Tamworth Lyceum just down the street to further experience our scratch made philosophy with elevated tastings, bottle shopping, bar supplies, events, and cocktail workshops.

Henniker Brewing Company

Since 2011, we’ve been brewing beers that we like to drink- that New Hampshire could be proud to call its own.

Our brewery is tucked away in the woods of Henniker, NH on Centervale Road, just a mile outside of Downtown Henniker. Whether you just finished skiing Pat’s Peak or paddling Freight Train, we’re a great place to have a beer and catch up with friends.

So bring the kiddos and the dog! Everyone is welcome at Henniker Brewing Company.

 

While visiting the brewery can be exciting, we do have a few guidelines to follow while at the taproom:

  • Masks are strongly recommended for unvaccinated folks.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • You may bring your own food into the brewery, but absolutely no outside alcoholic beverages allowed.
  • We are dog-friendly! We ask that your dogs are on a leash at all times while visiting.
  • Growlers must be cleaned prior to refilling. Dirty growlers will not be filled.
