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:

Still Going...

Greetings loyal followers!

I apologize for the tardiness of my postings this year.  Let me assure you that it is not due to lack of activity on the brewery.  I have continued to chip away at it whenever opportunity presents itself. Recently, the mash tun, exterior door and loft floor have all been completed. At this stage of the game, I would say that the building itself is 80-90% finished.  Most of the materials to complete the brewery are on hand, so I will continue to work away.  Some things, such as building the chimney for the boiler, will require a professional and we have received estimates for that work.

On the farm, the big news is that the chickens have started laying again!  We have plenty of eggs to go around so stop on by for a dozen and a peak at the brewery.

The sad news is that we had to say good-bye to our friend Duchess the Great Dane, who was a fixture at the farm and appeared in several of the brewery photos.  She is greatly missed.

So I am still going on the brewery.  Some farm structures sustained damage this winter and will need to be repaired or replaced (one horse shed is a complete loss). This will slow progress on the brewery a bit but we shall persevere! 

Those of you who have followed us from the start know that this has been a long process.  However, we are nearing completion and are considering taking on investors to help give this venture an extra push to get launched.  If you are interested, or know anyone who may be, please contact us by phone (603-835-7801) or email (
