Our Humble Porter from White Birch Brewing Hooksett, NH.  One of the most delicious porters i've ever tasted.  Spring 2014 release.  Makes me want to hold on to winter just a wee bit longer...

Had one out in Terrebonne last week! It was really good!

Just came back from Hobb's tavern in W. Ossipee, NH.  Highly recommended for those looking for good food and beer outside the valley.  Prices are moderate and beer selection great.  Was a bit busy but to be expected.  Great atmosphere, good food and beer and a wonderful waitstaff make for a win win situation.  Looking forward to getting to know a bar stool or two.

Good news about Hobbs Tavern; I've been watching their slow work to open for 2 years now-glad to hear they've finally made it!

Has anybody checked out the "newish" brewpub in Littleton?

Didn't know Hobbs had opened. The prior version of it (Mt Whittier Tavern) was a good place, so I'll have to check this one out. Now that its opened, maybe the crew will spend a bit more time working on the Ace Hardware store in Ossipee that is 'coming soon'......

Just got back from a week in Vail and really enjoyed beers from Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, especially the Hookiebobb IPA!

Good stuff if you are ever in the area.

Triguy,

Somewhere back earlier in this thread I'd written about Crazy Mountain. I don't know if you just had their beers or if you made it to their brewery and tasting room - which has a great local vibe to it. I hit it up almost every day after skiing at Copper Mt on my way back to Glenwood Springs when in CO.

Dillon Dam is a good brewery too. As is Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company.
