White Birch Brewing in Draft Magazine

Bill Herlicka, owner and brewer at White Birch Brewing in Hooksett, New Hampshire, was profiled in the June/August 2011 issue of Draft Magazine. The article, which you can get to by clicking here, gives a nice little profile on Bill, who started as a homebrewer, and transitioned from his career in Finance to running a seven barrel brewery in a small town (which happens to be my hometown).

The article goes on to profile some of White Birch Brewing's flagship, rotating, and apprentice beers, which are readily available at Bert's Better Beers in Hooksett, as well as package stores in MA, PA, and other states. The article is a fairly quick read, but will certainly get you interested in trying Herlicka's beers if you haven't already.

The brewery is actually moving from their current location at 1368 Hooksett Road to the former Auto Wholesalers building (right down the street) at 1339 Hooksett Road. The new space is substantially bigger, with a huge parking lot, which will allow for expansion of not only White Birch Brewing's production, but will provide them with far greater space for events - such as their Southern New Hampshire Brewers Festival which took place last month. This is also prime real estate, right on the busiest road in town, and will give the company far greater exposure!

Congratulations Bill!
