Hope to hit a couple this Friday. Taking my middle son on a college tour of Norwich U.

Well hit Good measure and it was a cool little place and really liked their:

STARING PROBLEM

Imperial Black Wheat IPA Brewed W/ Summit, Ekuanot, Chinook & Simcoe

45 IBUs // 7.8% ABV

Notes Of: Pine, Burnt Bread, Charred Lemon

 also tried (which was good as well):

EAST STREET BITTER

English-Style Extra Special Bitter

20 IBUs // 4.8% ABV

Notes Of: Caramel, Black Tea, Bread Flour

 

Wife had 2 5 oz's of some funky offerings which i didn't care for:

NEFARIOUS

Collaboration W/ Zero Gravity Craft Brewery

Sour Ale / Tart Farmhouse Ale

Fermented in Gin Barrels W/ Grape Must

10 IBUs // 3.8% ABV

Notes Of: Red Wine, Sour Cherries, Candy

EGO TRIP

German-Style Berliner-Weisse Brewed W/

Pineapple, Mango & Lactose Sugar

12 IBUs // 3.4% ABV

Notes Of: Smoothies, Sour Gummies, Creamsicles

Also went to River Roost and but they had no real tasting room. I had to get a growler. I usually like to taste what they have before getting a whole growler. I got lucky with their Big Smooth DPIA which tasted great. I guess you could sample but didn't see anyone doing so nor any glass to do so or signage.

Going to the Franconia area (otherwise called “the other side”) in a couple of weeks and may hit a couple of breweries in the area. Any suggestions or for a good IPA?

Thanks. I think I read they have an outdoor garden overlooking a river where you can have a beer.

Yes, shillings is phenomenal. But FYI to your original question, they are not big on IPAs. They mostly focus on Belgian style beers. Their "Foy" is an IPA, but not in the West coast style we're all used to. They sometimes have a guest IPA on tap.

One Love brewery in Lincoln has a killer IPL(ager).

Good information. Thank you. I’m in it for the IPA’s and don’t really like Belgium style beer.

Here is another place North of the Notches that is finally reopened - https://www.reklisbrewing.com/
I haven't tried it but want to.

Yes and I understand there is a brewery trying to reopen soon in Franconia called Iron Furnace, but as yet their website says they are not ready for prime time. Unsure what they will offer to the public at their site when they open.

Schilling also has these on tap

From Resilience Brewing, a side project of the brewers at Schilling:

Pompadour (American Pale Ale), 5.6% abv. This hazy golden American Pale Ale is loaded with Mosaic, Citra and Australian Ella hops.  Aromas and flavors of spruce, citrus and peach predominate.

Combover (India Pale Ale), 7% abv.  Citrus and spruce notes fill the palate as the North American and Southern Hemisphere hops spark jubilation.  Hazy, soft and dry on the finish.

Ponyhawk (Double India Pale Ale), 8% abv.  Huge waves of grass, pine and citrus coat the palate as the Chinook, Mosaic and Galaxy hops do their work.

Unintentional tradition starting: The Lyndonville, VT Redemption Center is a surprisingly great stop for craft beers. After skiing Burke or biking at Kingdom Trails it's hard to pass by. One of their great selections is from Bay State Brewing in Williamsburg, MA. I've never actually seen it anywhere else except up here in VT. They call it "crushable double IPA" but at 10 ABV I'm trying not to crush them! Awesome hoppy, floral, light flavors

My wife ran the 5k at Trillium yesterday morning.

We stuck around until retail sales started at noon, so I came home with 4packs of:

El Dorado Dry Hopped Fort Point (Pale ale)

Permutation 44 (Galaxy IPA)

Run Naked (Golden Ale)

A Street (IPA)

Skimpy Sparrow (APA)

Stumpy Duck (APA)

Also a bottle of Macaroon Imperial Stout and a bottle of Red Currant Fated Farmer

 

Nice to have the beer fridge restocked.

Did you get a good interest rate on the loan for this investment?!?

It was cheaper than a lift ticket at Vail, anyway. ?

Looks like my Sunapee pass is going to take care of that — the beer will be pricier (though worth it).

Have you tried Trapp's? I had a Dunkel last night and liked it. Trapp is coming on strong. They are also brewing an IPL that's really good.

As in the Von Trapp Brewery.  Yes.  Very good beers all around.  The Helle is really good.
