Concord New Hampshire Craft Beer Week

New Hampshire Craft Beer Week will be April 6 to 15. The event is a celebration of the Granite State’s artfully-craft ales and lagers and the people and businesses who make and sell them. There’s really no better way to unlock more of New Hampshire’s beer culture than joining this critical mass of happenings. This year’s event slate will feature more than 150 events at breweries, beer stores, restaurants, and bars in every part of the state. With 5.25 breweries in the state for every 100,000 residents, New Hampshire is busting at the seams with locally-brewed beer. If you’re not into the statistical side of things, just follow the N.H. Craft Beer Week Facebook page so you know what events are taking place. That’s the official list. Let’s Talk Beer and The Tap Handle Show, native New Hampshire beer podcasts, will be out in full force at events all week, broadcasting stories from around the state. f you or your business are interested in getting involved, visit nhbeer.org/nhcbw/ or contact Renee Vannata at renee@nhbeer.org or CJ White at cjwhite@nhbrewers.org for more information.
