Brewing in New Hampshire: An Informal History of Beer in the Granite State from Colonial Times to the Present

Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019, 7:00 PM, Lee Public Safety Complex 

Glenn Knoblock explores the fascinating history of New Hampshire’s beer and ale brewing industry from Colonial days, when it was home- and tavern-based, to today’s modern breweries and brew pubs. Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state’s earliest brewers, including the renowned Frank Jones. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state are also discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era. Illustrations present evidence of society’s changing attitudes towards beer and alcohol consumption over the years. Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or a “tea-totaler”, this lecture will be enjoyed by adults of all ages. A New Hampshire Humanities Council Presentation, Co-sponsored by the Lee Public Library
