Brewing in New Hampshire: An Informal History of Beer in the Granite State from Colonial Times to the Present.

A New Hampshire Humanities presentation

Glenn Knoblock stops by to give us an informal look at the history of Brewing in New Hampshire. Explore the fascinating history of New Hampshire’s beer and ale brewing industry from colonial days, when it was home-and tavern-based, to today’s modern breweries and brew pubs.

Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state’s earliest brewers, including the renowned Frank Jones. Learn more about a number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era. Illustrations present evidence of society’s changing attitudes towards beer and alcohol consumption over the years.

Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or a “tea-totaler”, this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages.

Use the Ossipee Park Road Entrance for this presentation as the front gate will be closed. This presentation will take place in the Winnipesaukee Room on the second floor of the Carriage House
