New Hampshire Craft Beer Week kicks off on April 7
While Mainers are looking ahead to what promises to be a fun day of beer and celebrating women in the craft beer industry with Beers With(out) Beards this Saturday, April 9 in Portland, New Hampshire is about to indulge in a week-long craft beer bash!
Starting tomorrow and running all the way through Saturday, April 16, the New Hampshire Brewers Association is putting on their annual New Hampshire Craft Beer Week. According to the NHBA (New Hampshire Brewers Association), over 120 events are scheduled throughout the Granite State during the 10-day cele-beer-tion.
The full list of events can be found on the official NHBA Facebook page under their events list, but essentially the events are all up to the individual craft breweries that are taking part in New Hampshire Beer Week. While some breweries, like Pipe Dream Brewing in Londonderry, New Hampshire, have a few events scattered throughout the week...
...other breweries, like Rek-Lis Brewing in Bethlehem, New Hampshire, have different events scheduled every single day of New Hampshire Beer Week, ranging from your usual bar trivia night to blind taste tests, ladies night, pitcher and pizza night, and everything in between!
Other events happening at some participating New Hampshire breweries during New Hampshire Beer Week include a cookies and beer pairing night at Hobbs Tavern & Brewing Company in West Ossipee, New Hampshire, an open mic night at Earth Eagle Brewings in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and a mix of live music nights and limited release nights at various breweries throughout the state.
Again, the full list of events can be found on the Events page of the NHBA Facebook page. Happy beer trails over the next 10 days, Granite Staters! (And Mainers traveling a bit south to cash in on the celebration, or defend Maine's honor of being the superior craft beer brewer!)
