Greenway APA: 5.2% American Pale Ale. A bit more malty sweetness than an IPA and a more restrained bitterness. This beer was designed to be an easy drinking beer that has a good amount flavor.
- The wheat in it helps to smooth out the body and contributes to a bit of haze.
- The caramel malts are the cause of the malty sweetness, lending a very light caramel to honey flavor to the beer.
- Cascade and Flaconer’s Flight 7 C’s were used in this beer. Both were added at the end of the boil for flavor and aroma additions and then more cascade was added as dry hops for 3 days before crashing.
Falconer’s Flight 7’Cs: 7 C’s stands for the 7 main US hops (Blend of 7 popular “C” hop varieties Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Citra, Cluster, Columbus and Crystal plus additional experimental varieties)
Aroma: Citrus/grapefruit character alongside fruity, spicy, and earthy notes
Cascade: Traditional American hop
Aroma: Strong spicy, floral, grapefruit character

We are bursting with excitement and we just can’t hold it in anymore…
Over the past six months we have been working diligently to relaunch Mooselick Brewery under a new brand that represents what we believe in and strive to become. We are finally ready to share the new company with you and celebrate the rebirth of Mooselick Brewery as Granite Roots Brewing!
As a nano brewery tucked away in the Monadnock region of the granite state, we are big believers in the New Hampshire way of life. The local support we have received to date has been incredible and is the reason why we still exist. We want to make sure we hold true to the NH way of life as we continue to grow and expand the brewery.
If we’re not sourcing our ingredients right from our farm, Monadnock Berries, we strive to source it as locally as we can. Even our merchandise comes from local vendors and artists. While we are sacrificing profits by not always choosing the lowest cost option, success to Granite Roots Brewing is much more than the maximum amount of profits we can generate.
We believe the name Granite Roots Brewing encapsulates our mission of creating farm to bottle beer while doing our part to strengthen the local community. We invite you all to come celebrate the beginning of a new chapter with us on multiple occasions in April.
- April 14th-16th will be the first weekend we will be opened under our new name, all Granite Roots merchandise will go on sale the 14th at 4pm.
- April 21st-22nd: All new growler club sign-ups will receive a free a Granite roots pint glass, an all weekend pass to the launch party the weekend of the 29th/30th, and a voucher for a free pint of fresh blueberries from Monadnock berries this summer.
- April 29th and 30th we will be having a relaunch party at the brewery opened to all.
Thank you all for your support over the past two years and we look forward to celebrating with you this April and beyond!
Stay up to date Granite Roots Brewing by following our Facebook page.

Why we created the Rootlet series:
If you are a craft beer lover like us, you cherish the excitement and anticipation of “opening > pouring > looking > swirling > smelling > tasting” a new beer for the first time. We were pretty confident nothing could top the experience of trying a new beer until Granite Roots Brewing LLC was born.
We quickly realized that starting at opening a beer was only half the equation and by starting the experience with raw ingredients makes the excitement and anticipation of “opening > pouring > looking > swirling > smelling > tasting” a new beer for the first time heaps of hops more enjoyable.
How will the series work?
As a small batch craft brewery using as many local ingredients and no shareholders to answer to, we have the luxury to experiment as much as we like! And experiment we do! Over the past year we have released 12 new beers while continuing to brew favorites such as Moose on the Roof and Blue moose.
With the Roolet Experimental IPA Series we want to experiment even more but with greater focus and scientific rigor. To explain from a high level how we will be running this series we are going to use the root system of a plant and apply the concept to the IPAs we created to date.
Let’s start with the definition of a taproot: a large, central, and dominant root forming the center of the root system from which subsidiary rootlets spring. To date, Moose on the Roof has been our IPA taproot, the standard base IPA we used as a starting point for all of the other IPAs brewed.
Next the definition of a rootlet: small, fine, adventurous roots that grow from the taproot. To date the rootlets of Moose on the Roof have been, Atmoosphere, Monadstock and Doc Hollidaze. The majority of the experimentation for the three IPAs came in the form of different hops and tweaks to the grains we used.
Moving forward, each new rootlet experiment will be added to a Rootlet experimental IPA Series page where you can track the experiments over time, ingredients, etc.
In the future, when a Rootlet is just so damn delicious that we all can’t get enough of it we will put it into limited production. If we are all still in love with it after a few more brews it will become it’s own taproot, be given a new name and have it’s own rootlet experiments.
