Granite Roots Announces Season Retail Model in 2024 – Brewing & Wholesale to continue year round

After discussions with the team we have decided to shift our on-site retail/Beer House to a seasonal model, with our last weekend of the winter being Jan 13th & 14th 2024. and an estimated re-opening in May. Although we love our unique and quirky set up, we’ll be the first to admit it’s not the best suited for the true winter temps and sometimes heavy snows here in Southwest N.H. (take that wet 3.5ft storm in March which crushed all our beer domes as an example!) With increased operating costs and the challenges winter presents to our set up, it can be tough to run in an effective and efficient manner.

We will take this time to make some upgrades, plan some cool additions to the beer garden this spring and also welcome 2 new babies to the team (Congrats Chris & Mike!)

Brewing will continue this winter for wholesale, including a couple exciting new brews hitting soon enough. We’ll keep our website up to date on where to find us throughout the 60ish stores/restaurants in NH and we will plan to do some more updates on social media outlining where/when to find our beer.

We’d like to thank everyone that’s taken the time to stop in for a pint, beer to-go, caught a show and shared a smile. We would love to see as many of you as we can in these final 3 weekends of winter business, but those of you that we miss get out and enjoy some great local beers in the area this winter and we can’t wait to welcome you all back in May!

Wishing everyone a healthy and safe holiday season with those most important to you.

Greenway APA Recipe Notes

IMG_20180309_080339_926Bryan pictured proudly showing off his most recent liquid art creation. Bryan’s liquid art, while visually appealing is crafted to be primarily enjoyed by your sense of taste and smell.

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.

Hop notes:
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

Please join us in celebrating Mooselick Brewery’s New Name!

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!

granite roots brewing-01

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!
