Additional Details

Are you tired of standing in a line 200 deep for a 4oz sample of beer? What about walking around and getting lost in a crowd of 1500 people? What if I told you you could be 1 of 200 people where you are sitting at a table and having the beer samples served to you, what would you say? What if you could hear the true story behind the beer from the Brewer or Owner of the brewery, what would you think? This is not your normal craft beer event! We want to provide an event for the beer connoisseur in all of us that want to take their drinking experience to the next level. It's an intimate, sophisticated, intellectual craft beer tasting, where the beer is paired with their actual brewers and the stories behind the beer. You will be seated at a table in a dim lit room being served samples of beer and fantastic finger foods. Six breweries will be sampling 2 of their finest creations and providing a 20 minute intimate presentation of who they are, where they came from, why they brew the beer they brew and many more details into what has made them and what goes into making their beer! Following the presentation there will be a 30 minute - 1hour Q and A session with additional samples where the brewers will answer your questions and a booth set up to sell some amazing SWAG! There will be some pretty cool give aways, bottles of local craft beer and a few other surprises. The list of attending Breweries will be out soon! The event will be MC'd by The Tap Handle Shows very own Michael Hauptly-Pierce. Must be 21 to attend. ID's will be checked at the door. There will be 15-6oz samples of Amazing NH Craft Beer served! If a refund is requested, you will be credited with tickets to the next scheduled event.
