Hobbs in W. Ossipee has growlers and 5 beers made that should be out by labor day so the rumor(bartender).  Cream ale , brown, chocolate porter and i forgot the other 2.  I will believe it when i have a full growler in hand.

White Birch Brewing Double IPA. Very good double hop bomb with no taste of alcohol. Very drinkable. Great after today's MTB ride.

Beginning to think White Birch is one of the better breweries in NH with all that they've brewed that I like.

Epic beer day day yesterday - and mountain bike ride. Did a really nice 25 mile ride at Kingdom Trails. Longest I've done in probably 10 years.

After the ride I cracked open an ice cold Heady Topper - just what I needed.

After that it was off to Hill Farmstead Brewery about 45 minutes away. Hill is actually rated one of if not the top breweries in the world. It's been awhile since I've been their to have my growlers filled and the new additions have only brought more people (of course it is a holiday). After an hour and half in line I got to the taster help - and had four small pours. At two and a half hours I finally got my growlers filled. Two Edward pale ales, Abner imperial IPA and Society and Solitude 5 double IPA. All rated in the top 50 or so beers.

On the way though Littleton I finally stopped at Schillings. Great place. Jef the owner was behind the bar pouring! Had what was probably the best Saison ever! And the wood fired pizza was excellent. Great place!

All in all a great day of riding and beer!

...Society and Solitude #5 - after having the 750 ml growler today at home (after another MTB ride) - might just be one of the best beers I've had. It's that good!

Mark, I know you mentioned Stoneface a few posts back...  I just happen to be doing some work for one of the owners. :D  I need to hit him up for some beer before we are done!

Dan,

Can't remember if you like hoppy beers or not but - do not leave that job site without getting some of the Soneface IPA! It will make you a convert. It was my favorite IPA at the NH brewers festival back in July.

Enjoy it!

Yeah really great stuff. Wish I could find it on tap easier. Pretty much only get to drink it during ski season.

Mark, I don't care for the bitter, hoppiness of the IPA's. I'll certainly give it a try if I can get some free but I'm not fond of spending money on something I don't generally care for. But if you say to try it, I might have to reconsider!
