9 Stripe Double IPA

ABV: 8.5%

# Ratings: 353
Score: 3.78
This big and bold Double IPA is all about the American hops. Multiple Citra additions from the middle of the boil onwards, this is all accented by Columbus and Centennial to really ramp up the hops. In 1767, the Sons of Liberty adopted a flag called the "Rebellious Stripes" with nine uneven vertical stripes (five red and four white). It is supposed that nine represented the number of colonies that were to attend the Stamp Act Congress.

A light golden ale. This is our ode to Main Street communities. Life isn’t always complicated, and neither is this ale. Light and bready, this beer is pale in color and noticeably herbal from the noble hops used in the boil. Named to honor our new location on Main Street in Plymouth, we are delighted to be a part of the golden part of Americana that is life in a Main Street community.

An IPA any New Englander would be proud of, this pleasantly dry IPA has ripe peach aromas followed by strong citrus flavors from large additions of Citra and Centennial hops. “To complete the organization of Grafton County, Governor Wentworth established two additional regiments, extending the militia system over the most populous sections of the county. These were called the eleventh and twelfth regiments. The eleventh included Plymouth, Holderness, Campton, Thornton, Rumney, Cockermouth, Alexandria, and New Chester.

A hoppy pale ale. Firmly rooted in the tradition of American brewing, our Pale Ale uses all domestic hops throughout the process and is underlined with a slight caramel sweetness.

Dark and delicious, this moderately roasty Porter is medium bodied with a dark chocolate and coffee finish, all on top of a light caramel base.

Bow & Cord Blonde

# Ratings: 260
Score: 3.47
Bow & Cord Blond This light and refreshing beer was designed to be easy to drink. The very lightly toasted flavors from the malts are rounded out by a slight honey sweetness and citrus zest. The recorded 1773 three hundred and forty-five inhabitants of Plymouth, NH by Benjamin Goold, John Willoughby, and Samuel Dearborn, the selectmen for the year noted this description of the married couples. The phrase is a quote from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem The Song of Hiawatha. “And as “unto the bow the cord is” it will not be doubted that fifty-seven married women were the wives of the fifty-seven married men whose names are given in the table.”

Bursting with fresh hop flavors, this style utilizes a large amount of hops almost exclusively at the very end of the boil as well as in the tank. Ours is double dry hopped at the beginning and end of fermentation so you don’t miss a thing. Sculptured Rocks Natural Area in nearby Groton is a popular NH summertime swimming hole. Over eons, the Cockermouth River carved out bedrock into beautiful natural shapes highlighting the organized chaos that is nature.

# Ratings: 103
Score: 3.59
Tropical hop flavors and aromas abound in this IPA designed to transport you to a happy place. Centennial, Mosaic, Glacier and Citra all make up part of the incredible bouquet on this beer. Livermore Falls, located in neighboring Campton and Holderness, was originally known as Little’s Falls after the original settler, Moses Little. This property was acquired by Judge Arthur Livermore in 1827, earning its new name. The water power here allowed numerous businesses to thrive here over the next 200 years, including a saw mill, grist mill, tannery, shingle mill, fish hatchery, and pulp mill, along with plenty of houses, a boarding house and even the precursor to the current Speare Memorial Hospital.

Made with milk sugar, this stout is made with the confections that have been made on Main Street over the past 60 years in mind. The result is a rich and toasty chocolate drink that pairs well with food. Refers to the bakery that was located where our brewpub is on Main Street for over 60 years.

Brewed with the traditional 6 Row barley instead of 2 row, this Cream Ale is fermented with a blend of ale and lager yeasts, giving it a very crisp and clean profile. The size of 4 lots given to Colonel Little by the proprietors of Plymouth south of Newfound Lake in the 3rd range.

This bright red ale aims for the middle of the road - not too malty, not too bitter but with all the tastes you want in a red. Piney Simcoe hops round out the slight biscuit flavor. A veteran of the American Revolution, Col. David Webster was appointed Plymouth’s first constable at the first town meeting on July 17, 1766, eventually ascending to the role of the High Sheriff of Grafton County. He is buried in the Trinity Churchyard in Holderness.
Chocolate Baker River Brown
Style: Brown Ale - American
ABV: 6.1%
IBUs: 22
# Ratings: 55
Score: 3.60
A sweet brown ale, this starts with a caramel flavor that quickly turns to dark bread from the brown malt that goes into the mash. Tettnang hops round out the profile with just a hint of wine. This is all complemented by a small addition of cocoa nibs, complementing the dark chocolate character of the roasted malts. The Baker River, also known as the Asquamchumauke, runs its course all the way from Mount Moosilauke to where it joins the Pemigewasset River just north of the town center.
Polar Caves Ale
Style: Pale Ale - American
ABV: 6.3%
IBUs: 35
# Ratings: 53
Score: 3.54
A light, quenchable American ale, this was brewed with the teamwork of the Polar Caves, just over a mile up the road from the production brewery. It’s hopped with almost entirely Glacier hops (eh, get it?) and is an excellent way to wind down the day after exploring New Hampshire’s natural beauty. The Polar Caves in Rumney were formed at the end of the last Ice Age by massive glaciers dropping boulders in their wake. These colossal rocks formed caves at the base of Hawk Cliff, which along with the convenient board walks makes adventure easy to come by.
Pemi Meadows Belgian Blonde
Style: Belgian Blonde
ABV: 5.3%

# Ratings: 52
Score: 3.58
We took a brewery favorite and threw it in a fermenter with a blend of Belgian and saison yeast strains instead of the usual. Look for fruity esters from the Belgian yeast in this drier and more thirst-quenching experience. A reference to the location of many farms along the river as the town was originally formed.
Chuck's Wheat Ale
Style: Wheat Beer - American Pale Wheat
ABV: 5.0%
IBUs: 22
# Ratings: 49
Score: 3.50
A simple yet elegant American wheat, hopped with 3 American varieties for a fresh citrusy flavor that goes down smooth. Francis “Chuck” Sanborn, a WWII vet, father of five and grandfather of the owner of the brewery, loved to garden. Chuck spent all of his free time in the garden growing whatever he felt like that season, resulting in a plethora of fresh fruits and vegetables around the house.
Covered Bridge 41 IPA
Style: IPA - American
# Ratings: 31
Score: 3.66
A cross between an older West Coast and a more modern East Coast IPA that was brewed for the Covered Bridge Farm Table Restaurant in Campton. This one is about the Simcoe hops. The earthy, piney flavors with grapefruit undertones are complimented by other American “C” hops, all over a lighter drinkable malt sweetness. Covered Bridge 41 in Campton, also known as the Blair Bridge, has seen a few rebuildings since the original design in 1829. The first one was burned down, then was rebuilt after a doctor lost his horse trying to cross the river. Damaged as well by Hurricane Irene, it was repaired and opened again in 2015.

This dark IPA is characterized by a moderate level of roast towards the end, along with strong citrus and piney notes from lots of late boil hop additions and dry hopping. “Colonel John Fenton in his opinions and conduct in the early stages of the Revolution is a character for delineation in the history of New Hampshire. As a county official, as a colonel of the eleventh regiment, as a temporary resident, and as the only representative from this town to the assembly of the assembly of the province, he was a prominent actor in the prelude of the history of Plymouth in the Revolution.”
