New Brewery in Milford, NH
There is a new brewery about to come into town. Well, not our town, but Milford, NH. The entire article can be found here. Following is an excerpt regarding the brewery:
After doing research, he hired Labbe, former head brewer at Concord Brewery in Lowell, and began scouting for equipment and a location.
The Permattach building at 127 Elm St. has been vacant since 2002, when the industrial-diamond firm shut after 42 years in town. Jewett said the long, brick-fronted factory, a half-mile west of the Oval, suits him even though it is hidden from Route 101A by a steep slope, because he has no plans for retail sales.
Apparently the only other microbreweries in the region are brewpubs, like Martha’s Exchange in Nashua. Pennichuck will exclusively sell wholesale to bars and restaurants, and bottled beer sold through local stores may come later.
Jewett said they plan to start with an “English-inspired” red ale, followed by a Vienna lager to head up a series of German-inspired lagers. Lagers are less common from small breweries because they take roughly twice as long as ales to ferment.
