Join with us on our adventure as we build East Alstead's first brewery and what is quite possibly the only off-grid commercial brewery in the United States. We feel that what we brew and how we brew it are equally important. If you would like to help out with this project, contact me at:

Brewery Update

Lately we have been getting many questions about the status of the brewery. To recap, we have made it past the town boards and can go forward with the actual building. However, that took a while and it is now getting a bit late in the year (and showing no sign of drying out) so we have decided to wait until spring to begin construction. It was not an easy decision to make. We did not want to risk losing the momentum we have with our friends and neighbors. However, we also did not want to rush things under less than ideal conditions. By waiting until spring, we also will have more time to organize and secure any funding we may require, though we are still intending to do this on our own.

We are pretty excited that this is really going to happen. We have talked with our key supporters and they have reaffirmed their support. We can’t wait to hit it hard in spring. Regardless of the final outcome, we will have a whopper of a story to tell when it is all over. Now if I could just get some of that economic stimulus money…
