If good things always come in threes, then Concord’s beer-brewing scene is officially good.

Three breweries inside city limits will be part of the 7th annual Keep New Hampshire Brewing Festival: Concord Craft Brewing, begun in 2015; Litherman’s Limited (2016) and Feathered Friend Brewing Co., which opened this year.

They will be among at least 53 craft breweries scheduled to be part of the festival at Kiwanis Waterfront Park, behind Everett Arena at 15 Loudon Road on Saturday, July 9.

If nothing else the lineup shows how the days of one-syllable corporate beer names (Bud, Schlitz, Coors) are long gone: Participating breweries include Oddball, Vulgar, Empty Pint, Muddy Road and The Last Chair.

Eight food trucks and a dozen vendors will also be there, along with live music.

The festival runs from 1 to 4 p.m. General admission tickets ($50 in advance, $55 at the gate) include samples from the breweries, souvenir taster glass, free parking. Designated driver tickets are $20, which includes free parking.

This is a 21-plus event – no children or pets. It will take place rain or shine, with “plenty of shade under the event tents.”

Proceeds will benefit the NH Brewers Association to promote, protect, educate and advocate for craft beer and brewers in NH. A portion of each ticket will be donated to the Concord Fire Department Union.
