New Hampshire breweries Great North Aleworks, Woodstock Inn Brewery, Moat Mountain Brewing Company, Smuttynose Brewing Company and Great Rhythm Brewing Company have collaborated on a new beer in order to support the New Hampshire Hospitality Employee Relief Fund (NHHERF).
Cerveza de Leche (Milk Beer) starts as a traditional milk stout brewed with lactose (aka milk sugar). The lactose gives this stout a creamy body, and just a touch of sweetness. We also use a blend of pale malt, chocolate malt, and roasted malt for that signature stout flavor and appearance.
Smokin’ is an American take on a classic Rauchbier (German for smoked beer). It’s brewed with Bamberg malt smoked over a beechwood fire, hopped with Hallertau Mittelfrüh, and fermented with California ale yeast. Smokin’ is aromatic and flavorful, just shy of “bacon in a glass”.
Founded in January 1991, Brew Free or Die (BFD) is New Hampshire’s first and longest running homebrew club. BFD25 is a barleywine-style ale that celebrates the club’s 25th Anniversary. In collaboration with BFD members, this beer was brewed with 25 different ingredients and had an original gravity of 25˚ plato.
