Compared to its counterparts in Vermont and Maine, rural New Hampshire isn’t exactly known for being a culinary or craft beverage destination.
Hidden in Vermont’s rolling hillside are renowned breweries like Hill Farmstead, The Alchemist and Lawson’s, while Maine has Allagash, Foundation and Bissell Brothers, to name a few. Of course, New Hampshire has Smuttynose and a few other worthwhile breweries, but you won’t find many beer connoisseurs skipping Vermont, Maine or even Massachusetts to head to the Granite State for a beer tour.
The Mount Washington Valley’s Ledge Brewing Company might help change that.
“We have a small brewhouse, which allows us to try different techniques,” said Ian Ferguson, one of Ledge Brewing Company’s two owners. “This allows us to have that attention to detail that larger breweries can’t.”
