3 Must-Try New Hampshire Breweries

Before you start your “libatious” journey, we ask that you drink responsibly and be sure to secure a designated driver. Although it would be reasonably easy to search Google for “breweries near me,” deciding which ones to visit may be more challenging. To help streamline your efforts, we’ve put together a useful list of our favorite local New Hampshire breweries. Cheers!

1. Canterbury Aleworks

Canterbury Aleworks might be one of the most unique craft beer experiences you’ll ever embark. Known as a nano-brewery, Canterbury is a one-barrel operation influenced by British and Irish handcrafted beers. Water-powered and wood-fired, you’ll take a trip to a simpler time for a surprisingly wide variety for such a small operation. 

2. Twin Barns Brewing Company

Although they specialize in beer, Twin Barns is more than a brewery. Besides their eclectic selection of signature beers, TBBC also features a delectable food menu to complement a noteworthy collection of IPAs, porters, and stouts. It bears mentioning that TBBC invites those on “workation” to carry out their tasks from the comfort of the taproom.

3. Kettlehead Brewing Company

Much like Twin Barns, Kettlehead Brewing Company has offerings that extend beyond beers. With a more expansive food menu than most New Hampshire breweries, it’s almost a taproom-restaurant hybrid. Further separating Kettlehead from the pack is a wide variety of craft beers, including an IPA milkshake, imperial stout, hard cider, and hefeweizen.
