Brewing in NH - An Informal History

Jul 25   7:00 pm         Glenn Knoblock

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. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state are also discussed, 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 teetotaler, this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages.
