Great North Variety Packs

It was an exciting day in the brewery today. All hands were on deck to fill our first Great North Aleworks Variety Packs. Each 12-pack contains 3 cans each of IPA, RVP, Smokin’, and our summer seasonal Tie Dyed (once fall rolls around you’ll see Cranberry Wit, and then in winter Chocolate Milk Stout).

Leaping into March!


We hope everyone enjoyed the extra day in February this year and are looking forward to March, the arrival of Spring, and Daylight Savings. Just a few updates from us as we start out the month…


March 4th – Firkin Friday

Our past few cask tappings were made possible with the generous loan of a pin (5.4 gallon cask) from Rob at The Coat of Arms in Portsmouth. While that cask is back with its owner (thanks again Rob!), we now have our very own firkins (10.8 gallon cask) and will be tapping one this Friday at 3:00 pm sharp. For this release, we decided to have some fun with our IPA, dry hopping it directly in the cask with 3 new U.S. hop varieties – Cashmere, Triple Pearl, and Tahoma – along with a healthy dose of sweet orange peel. This special cask of IPA will be available in the tasting room by 4 oz sample and pints (sorry, no growler fills). How long it will last is anyone’s guess!


St. Patrick’s Day

It may not be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we’ll have $1 off pints in the tasting room. It’s a Thursday, so we will be open our regular hours, 3:00-7:00 pm. Sláinte!


NHCraftBeerWeekNew Hampshire Craft Beer Week

Mark your calendars, April 2nd-10th will be New Hampshire Craft Beer Week! Breweries across the state will be planning events and releases in celebration of New Hampshire’s dynamic, delicious craft beer. We are currently working out the details of what Great North Aleworks will do to celebrate, so stay tuned!

Growler Totes:

Growler BagGrowler Totes

We have sturdy Growler Totes, locally made by the Urban Quilter out of our grain bags. They are perfect for carrying growlers back and forth from home to the brewery. One of these would make a great gift for someone who already has a growler, or make it a gift set by adding an empty growler with a Great North Aleworks gift card good for a growler fill.

Gift Cards:

Gift CardSpeaking of Gift Cards, we have snazzy looking gift cards available. They can be created for any dollar amount, and they never expire. Gift cards can be redeemed in the brewery tasting room for samples, flights, food, growler fills, six packs, kegs, or for any of the merch available in the retail store.



In addition to the t-shirts (men’s crew neck, ladies crew neck, ladies v-neck) and caps that we have had in the store, we have some brand new items that will help keep you warm as winter approaches. We have long-sleeve unisex thermals, men’s zip hoodies, ladies zip hoodies, and winter beanies (though some of us call these toques!).
