The Claremont Brewfest is almost here! On September 19th we’ll be there from 1-5pm, and if you’ve decided to purchase a VIP ticket, we’ll be doing a VIP hour from 12-1pm. Click here to visit the Claremont Brewfest website for more information. We will have Moose Hide and Hoof Print Porter with us this weekend, and one of our fruit beers as our VIP beer. We hope to see you all there on Saturday!
The holiday weekend is here, and we’ve brought back the last keg of our award-winning Best in Show Velvety Antlers Brown Ale! We sold about half of it Friday night, so if you need that brown ale fix, you better show up early on Saturday before it’s all gone! Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until the end of the month when our second batch is ready.
Come in with your clean growlers to refill so you can enjoy some Mooselick beer this great holiday weekend!
Finally! I know you all have been waiting with baited breath for this moment, and believe me, we have too! Starting any venture to do with selling or distributing alcohol is a long and detailed process, and once we got our licenses and correct equipment, we needed to make sure everything worked well and produces a product we are proud of.
It is very fitting that Mooselick Brewing should open on July 25th, as that is not only the 200th anniversary of Troy, our chosen home town, but it is also the Levick Family’s 20th anniversary of moving to The United States of America, our chosen home country. You will notice that Anthony still has a strong British accent, and the Levick Family may all use some odd terminology and inflections every once in a while, but we are very much a part of this country and the fabric of our chosen Monadnock Region community now. We plan to celebrate that by lifting our glasses together, and toasting to this new venture.
We will have two traditional ales ready for tasting and purchasing on the Saturday the 25th, and the first fruit beer, Red Berry Gulp, will be ready a few weeks later. Fruit beers take twice as long to ferment, but are absolutely worth the wait.
Anthony, Dave and I had a great time at the Taste of Monadnock at Colony Mill on Monday, May 4th! Dave, our master brewer, had refined a range of flavors ready for the evening’s tasting.
We sampled a red raspberry, a black currant, a peach, and a berry mix. For those traditionalists out there we also had an English Mild Ale brewed with oatmeal, an Amber Ale with hop flavor and aroma, but without the bitterness, one with home grown Centennial hops, and a Porter brewed with molasses and vanilla.
We spoke with many folks over the course of the night and also had a chance to meet other vendors in the Monadnock Region. It is very exciting that our region has was chosen to host the Governor’s Conference on Tourism and Travel for the first time ever, this year! I want to give a shout out to all the folks that made it happen, from the amazing food and drink, to the beautiful host venues that were able to showcase our region so well.
