New Brewery to Open in North Hampton, NH
According to one of my sources (read: Bert Bingel of Bert's Better Beers in Hooksett, NH), there is a new brewery set to open up shop in North Hampton, New Hampshire this spring called Throwback Brewery.
Per their website, Throwback handcrafts farm fresh, artisinal beers from local ingredients. Their goal is to acquire most of their ingredients from local farmers, and their vision is to eventually use 100% local ingredients (hops, barley, fruit, wheat, and spices). This in turn will help out local businesses, and will cut down on ancillary costs - such as shipping, which helps cut down over all costs. It's also a great way for Throwback Brewery to act as a corporate and environmental citizen.
Throwback Brewery was founded in early 2010 by Annette Lee and Nicole Carrier. Annette spent 20 years as a environmental engineer, but completed the Siebel Institute's World Brewing Academy Concise Course in Brewing Technology in 2008. She also worked as an intern at the Smuttynose Brewing Company in Portsmouth, NH.
I for one am very excited for a new micro-brewery in my home state of New Hampshire. The brewery is scheduled to open in March of 2011, and I look forward to visting their brewery as soon as possible.
