BREWERIES

Better when you get it from the source

North Conway

Open since 2000, Moat Mountain Smoke House is a 174-seat brewpub, restaurant, and inn located in one of North Conway's most historic buildings. In addition to our flagship location, we recently restored the Limmer Barn in Intervale, NH, opening the Moat Mountain Brewing Company Brewery Barn and Cannery in 2013.The Brewery Barn and Cannery provides year-round availability of many of our brews in both draft and 16-ounce cans. And, we continue to brew right at the Smoke House, focusing on more specialty ales and lagers for our guests to enjoy on site.

 

Hampton

Brewer of craft beers since 1994, situated on a Victorian farm with tours & a retail store.  
Smuttynose was founded in 1994 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Founder Peter Egelston and his sister Janet had opened the Northampton Brewery in 1987 and the Portsmouth Brewery in 1991. They acquired the assets of a small, short-lived microbrewery in warehouse on the southern edge of town. Early partners Paul Sylva and Jim Beauvais, founders of Ipswich Brewery, were quickly bought out. The first Smuttynose pints were poured on July 14, 1994, along Portsmouth's historic waterfront. Portsmouth mayor Eileen Foley toasted the new brewery with sixteen ounces of Shoals Pale Ale, the brewery's initial offering.
In 2004, Smuttynose began looking for the site of its new home in Newmarket, New Hampshire, but the deal fell through in late 2005. Subsequently, Smuttynose begins working on plans to build a new brewery on a 10-acre (40,000 m2) parcel along U.S. Route 1 in Portsmouth, but the project met community opposition and was abandoned.
The company's annual production volume surpassed 15,000 barrels in 2006. Gross sales for Smuttynose Brewing Company in 2009 reached $5.7 million. The following year, construction began on Smuttynose's new home on the historic 17-acre (6.9 ha) Towle Farm in Hampton, New Hampshire.

North Conway

Diana’s Baths is a series of pools and cascades on Lucy Brook about a three quarter mile walk on the Moat Mountain Trail (northern terminus). The section of the trail up to the Baths is ADA with benches along the way. There is a large parking lot, toilets, and trash collection at the site along with a self serve pay station. The parking lot is maintained for winter use. Due to safety concerns, parking along the roadway at this location is specifically prohibited.

Glen Ellis Falls01NH.jpg

Pinkhams Grant

Glen Ellis Falls has the combination of power and grace that many waterfalls in New England simply do not have. Even in times of low water, this waterfall has a lot of flow. There are three good waterfalls in Pinkham Notch: Thompson Falls, Crystal Cascade, and Glen Ellis Falls. In addition to these three main waterfalls, Raymond Cataract (between Tuckerman's Ravine and Huntington Ravine) is distantly visible from the parking lot of Wildcat Mountain Ski Area, Chudacoff Falls (on George's Gorge Trail), and the cascades in Tuckerman's Ravine and the Gulf of Slides. Glen Ellis Falls is the jewel of this valley. It has a designated parking lot, a trail leading under Route 16, some steep stone stairs, and a great view of a powerful waterfall 64 feet tall. There is a short waterfall just upstream from the main falls, and another just downstream, each being about 10' in height. In addition, immediately above the crest of the main drop is a hidden 10' plunge into a tight cleft in the rock

Polar-Caves-Park.jpg

Rumney

Polar Caves were formed during the last Ice Age when a glacier moved across the landscape, dropping granite boulders at the base of what’s now known as Hawk’s Cliff. As they fell, the boulders formed passageways, around and through which, we’ve built boardwalks and stairs to allow for deeper exploration.  Be inspired by the wild wonders of the natural world at Polar Caves, offering family-friendly adventure since 1922. Explore nine granite caves, seven attractions, including new climbing attractions, visit our Animal Park, and shop for unique gifts, snacks, homemade fudge, maple products and more

Sargent's Purchase

Mount Washington State Park, a 60.3-acre parcel perched on the summit of the Northeast's highest peak, is surrounded by the extensive 750,000-acre White Mountain National Forest. On a clear day, views from the 6,288-foot summit extend beyond New Hampshire as far as 130 miles to Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Quebec, and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Sherman Adams building, a modern summit building, houses The Sherman Adams Visitor Center, a cafeteria, restrooms, gift shops, the Mount Washington Observatory and its museum. The historic Tip-Top House is located adjacent to the summit building.

Hood River

one of the most beautiful areas in southern New Hampshire. This land is special because it collects and stores water from rainfall or melting snow that provides drinking water for 159,000 people in the regional Manchester area. Deer, raccoon, fox, loons, hawks, and many other species of wildlife are part of this watershed. Game fish include large and small mouth bass, white and yellow perch, and the lake is periodically stocked with trout by the N.H. Department of Fish and Game.

Franconia-Notch-State-Park.jpg

Franconia/Lincoln

Franconia Notch State Park is located in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest. Franconia Notch is a spectacular mountain pass traversed by a unique parkway which extends from the Flume Gorge at the south to Echo Lake at the north. For eight miles, I-93 winds between the high peaks of the Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges.
Franconia Notch was the home of the famous Old Man of the Mountain, the same "Great Stone Face" immortalized by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Daniel Webster. While you are here, stop at the Flume Gorge Visitor Center and walk through the renowned Flume Gorge, ride the exciting aerial tramway at Cannon Mountain, and visit the New England Ski Museum. Take your time, stop for a swim at Echo Lake, net a trout while fly fishing at Profile Lake, ride your bike on the Recreational Trail, watch for rock climbers, hawks, and falcons on Cannon Cliffs, or hike on the Appalachian Trail. Bring the family, stay awhile, and enjoy Franconia Notch State Park.

Mount Washington

Tuckerman Ravine is a glacial cirque sloping eastward on the southeast face of Mt. Washington, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Although it draws hikers throughout the year, and skiers throughout the winter, it is best known for the many "spring skiers" who ascend it on foot and ski down the steep slope from early April into July. In this period, the temperatures are relatively mild but the natural snowpack - which averages up to 55 feet (17 m) in a typical winter - is still adequate to ski most seasons. The record-setting high winds atop Mount Washington scour a massive amount of snow from the surrounding highlands and drop it here or in the adjacent Huntington Ravine.

161 miles Hanover to Wenbtworth

The New Hampshire Appalachian Trail begins at the bridge over the Connecticut River that separates Vermont and New Hampshire. That’s where I had my shuttle driver drop me off, before I headed up the hill thru Hanover Center, which was bustling with Dartmouth students. A few turns along some side streets and I entered the western end of the White Mountain National Forest, headed east on the Appalachian Trail.
Most people don’t realize that the Whites begin in Hanover, which is 50 miles west of Mount Moosilauke, the first of the 4000 footers that thru-hikers have to climb on their way to Maine. All of the maps for the White Mountain National Forest leave out all of the trails west of Moosilauke, including those published by the Appalachian Mountain Club, although the descriptions and driving directions for them are included in the White Mountain Guide.

Monadnock.jpg

Jaffrey

Monadnock State Park is located in and around the 3,165-ft. Mount Monadnock. The park is surrounded by thousands of acres of protected highlands. In 1987, Mount Monadnock was designated a National Natural Landmark. The park offers year-round recreational opportunities.

HamptonBeach_2016.jpg

Hampton Beach

It is hard to say when Hampton Beach became such a famous place to spend splendid summers on the Seacoast. Was it in 1900 when the trolleys arrived at the Hampton Beach Casino? In the 1840’s when the first hotels were opened for summer vacationers? Or a now forgotten era, when Native Americans camped out on the shores of Hampton Harbor?
Those were merely the seeds of a great destination being planted.
The truth is that the town of Hampton itself was once a major farming community, with few concerns about the needs of a vacationer’s paradise along its Atlantic shores. This neglect led to the formation of the Hampton Beach Village District.
Established on June 26, 1907, the Hampton Beach Village District began a pattern of progress as it led the town to the future. Electricity and waterworks were installed at Hampton Beach first to ensure the comfort of visitors. More importantly was the creation of the town’s first Fire Department to ensure the protection and safety of property at Hampton Beach. The 1923 fire station at Hampton Beach is still in service and stands on Ashworth Avenue, near Hampton’s new police station.

Lee

Flag Hill sits on a 110 acre conservation easement which preserves the property to remain in agriculture forever. The farm switched from a dairy farm to a vineyard in 1987 with the planting of the first grapes on the property, and the winery began in 1990 with our first harvest.  Years later in 2004 Flag Hill Distillery began making vodka from the highest quality apples New Hampshire has to offer.

Hollis

We believe in letting the vine and its fruit express itself. We are translators for what has already been created. Our joy is in seeing others enjoy our  wine as a food, a medicine as Hippocrates said, and to enjoy it with their families and friends. Much is said of terroir and what the earth contributes to a wine but we can add something more… intangibles… While nearby cities to our south, east and north bustle with activity, a timeless feeling engulfs the atmosphere hovering over and around our vines. A timeless quality exists here that brings us all back to another time seemingly gone by. Here hustle and bustle no longer matter and traditions that go back in our family for centuries have resurfaced.

Amherst

Guided tours of our property are offered Saturday & Sunday, every hour on the hour from 12:00pm – 5:00pm.
Our guided tours, which are approximately 20-30 minutes, provide an overview of the building
architecture, vineyards & winemaking production cellar within our Amherst facility.

South Hampton

Our New  Hampshire winery, Jewell Towne Vineyards,  started with six grapevines planted in 1982 by Dr Peter Oldak, an Emergency Department physician. He eventually planted over 60 varieties of grapes to determine which varieties survive New Hampshire winters, ripen in the summer, and make quality wine.

Since then, Peter has pioneeered viticulture and winemaking in New Hampshire. In 1990, Peter and his wife Brenda, a Clinical Specialist in Nursing, established Jewell Towne Vineyards. Located in  South Hampton, our New Hampshire Winery was situated on the southward facing slopes of the Powwow River and possessed an ideal microclimate for growing grapes.


In 1994, Jewell Towne Vineyards became a licensed commercial New Hampshire winery. Since then, Jewell Towne, the oldest New Hampshire winery, has won over 150 medals in national and international competition. Peter's expertise has put him in high demand as a speaker at seminars on viticulture and winemaking.

Meredith

Old world character meets new world fruit—each of our award-winning and handcrafted wines is made from a unique combination of locally sourced fruit, honey, and flowers, in some cases wild-foraged. Our process is devotedly hands-on from vine to bottle, using old world techniques with the highest level of care and integrity. The result is wine with rich, complex flavors. All of our wines are vegan (with the exception of honey wines), gluten-free, raw, and mostly organic to Best Management Practices—and an excellent accompaniment to a variety of foods.
The care and creativity that goes into our wines have resulted in Hermit Woods becoming one of Northern New England’s most sought-after artisan brands

Walpole

For us, it all starts with the grape. We are exceptionally proud and quite unique in that our wines are made 100% from grapes we grow in our own vineyard. It doesn't say just "American Table Wine" on our label -- when you see "New Hampshire" on our label, it means that the grapes are grown here as well. We are a fully "estate" winery. If you want a taste of New Hampshire "terroir," you will find it here.
Our ever-present wind and sunny location high up in the hills flanking the Connecticut River Valley, contributes significantly in our efforts to grow delicious grapes that translate into fine wines. Gravelly, mineral-rich soil provides perfect drainage, as vines don't like their feet being continuously wet. Continuous breezes dry the vines quickly after each rainfall, helping our organic efforts in disease and pest control.
Our wines are grounded in their sense of place, just as they are in the best vineyards throughout the world. Each variety here has been chosen because of its special flavor, function, time of ripeness, disease resistance, and winter heartiness. Each vine is tended and nurtured individually. Every growing and wine making decision is made in careful steps, not broad strokes.

Sandown

Zorvino Vineyards is a picturesque winery located in Sandown, New Hampshire on 80 beautiful acres in the middle of a New England hardwood forest. We are committed to producing quality wines from local New England grapes carefully tended on our own property, as well as interesting varietals from grapes grown in premier winemaking regions of the world, including Tuscany, Chile & Northern CA. We also produce award winning fruit wines made with locally grown fruit.
