A few weeks ago I wrote about my overall perception of beer in New Hampshire. It turns out that it starts on the smallest level.

Bon Appetit recently named North Hampton nanobrewery Throwback Brewery one of the Top 10 nanobrews in the country.

A nanobrewery is a very small brewery operation which usually runs with fewer than a four beer barrel brew system. They often turn into microbreweries or brewpubs.

As of September 2011, here is a master list of 87 nanobreweries in the United States. There are four breweries from the Granite State.

According to Throwback’s website, its goal “is to acquire most of our ingredients (such as hops, wheat, barley, fruit, and spices) from local farmers. While we are not quite there today, it is our vision that eventually 100% of our ingredients will be sourced locally, including the malt.”

You can also find Throwback on Facebook.

So we learn something new everyday right? Well, today I learned I want to try a Throwback.

In other news:

∎ The Balsalms Grand Resort got the okay from the planning board for a $35 million renovation.

∎ I also learned Jumanji was filmed in New Hampshire. If you’re interested in learning about the other films shot in the Granite State, give the film tour a try.

∎ Privatizing the state’s prisons would be bad news says George Bruno, one of the founders of New Hampshire Legal Assistance and the New Hampshire Public Defender.

 Dodgeball has been banned from Windham schools because of violence and bullying concerns.

 Some gun clubs are on the verge of capping their membership.

 Did you think this was an overly snowy winter on Mount Washington?

∎ Maple syrup comes in all kinds of shades.
