Concord, NH (February 8th, 2017) – Plans are under way for the third annual New Hampshire Craft Beer Week hosted by the collaborative effort of Brew NH and Granite State Brewers Association from March 31st to April 8th, 2017.
New Hampshire Craft Beer Week (NHCBW) is a nine day celebration of New Hampshire’s dynamic, delicious craft beer ecosystem. Craft breweries, home brewers, distributors, taprooms, restaurants, and bottle shops throughout the Granite State are busily creating a unique schedule of events that will showcase and celebrate the great flavors and culture of NH craft beer.
The state of New Hampshire currently has 63 licensed breweries and 10 distributor facilities which can be found on the NH Beer Map at https://nhbeer.org/beer-map/ . The National Beer Wholesalers of America (NBWA) estimates that the beer industry in New Hampshire has a $525.5 million impact on our economy.
There are over 70 events in planning including pairings, tastings, tours, demonstrations and tap takeovers. Also, new dynamic and delicious happenings will highlight the growing NH craft beer industry at its finest. This year some of the flagship events of NHCBW are the DRAFT fest (Derry Regional Ales & Films Together festival), a Downtown Exeter pub crawl, The Hop Talks at The Flight Center in Nashua, an April Fools & Beers event at Area 23 in Concord and our annual Cook’s Corner segments on WMUR.
