On Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 7pm Water Street Bookstore will be hosting Aldrich and Meredith (co-hosts of the podcast Seacoast Beverage Lab) for a talk about their book and the history of brewing in New Hampshire. You can read about how they put the book together at Seacoast Online.
In 1859, the legendary Frank Jones Brewery was founded in Portsmouth, paving the way for the booming craft beer scene of today. The surge of budding breweries is bringing exciting styles and flavors to thirsty local palates and neighborhood bars from the White Mountains to the seacoast. Join beer scholars and adventurers Brian Aldrich and Michael Meredith as they explore all of the tastes New Hampshire beer has to offer. They've scoured the taps at Martha's Exchange, peeked around the brew house at Smuttynose and gotten personal with the brewers behind Flying Goose and Moat Mountain. Discover, pint for pint, the craft and trade of the state's unique breweries, from the up-and-comers like Earth Eagle and Schilling to old stalwarts like Elm City and Portsmouth Brewery. --Publisher's blurb
