Introducing SNOBier

SNOB Poster

The 14th annual (SNOB) Film Festival (SNOB = Somewhat North Of Boston) will run from November 12th through 15th at the Red River Theaters in Concord, NH. SNOB is all about independent film, music, and craft beer!

Great North Aleworks is thrilled to be participating this year by brewing the the official beer of the festival – we call it SNOBier!

SNOBier is an amber lager (yes, Great North Aleworks has brewed it’s first lager!) that was designed by John Cataldo, our Quality Control & Assurance Manager – it’s his take on a German-style Festbier. The beer is amber in color and is lightly hopped, resulting in a bready and honey-like flavor that comes from a blend of malts used in the brew.

You’ll be able to find SNOBier throughout on tap throughout NH, as well as in our tasting room.

As of 11/11/15 you’ll be able to find SNObier at the following locations:

Cranberry Wit is now available!


Cranberry Wit is now on tap at our tasting room for samplers and growlers. It will make it’s way to bars and restaurants throughout New Hampshire in the coming weeks. This draft only seasonal release is a new twist on an old favorite. We started by brewing up a classic Belgian-style witbier with coriander and orange peel, to which we added juicy cranberries. The result is a lively, refreshing beer with a slight tart finish.

Distribution has started…


First canning run

It certainly has been a very busy past few months here at Great North Aleworks. Things really started happening back in May when the construction crew came in to dig up the warehouse floor in order to install the drains and sloped floor. Since that time, we have been busy getting all of the brewing equipment in place, plumbed in, and up & running.

Things really started brewing (literally!) in July & we canned and kegged our first beers late in August.
