Grand Opening TODAY – Earth Eagle Tasting Room – 11/17 (NH)
After a great deal of planning and hard work, Alex McDonald an Butch Heilshorn will be opening the tasting room doors for Earth Eagle Brewing at noon.
Stop in today for the GRAND OPENING to enjoy some samples and take home growlers (1- and 2-liter glass jugs).
Located at 165 High Street in Portsmouth NH, Earth Eagle is a nano brewery adjacent to A&G Homebrew Supply. With the exception of an occasional area bar event, the brewery’s tasting room will be the only place to purchase their beers – for the time being.
Earth Eagle Brewing will offer unique versions of familiar beer styles such as IPAs and porters, but they will also dedicate much of their efforts toward experimental and ancient beers. “Among the first to be on tap will be Puca, a delicious curry pumpkin porter,” McDonald explains. “And another is Exhilaration, an invigorating traditional gruit made with three herbs: sweet gale, yarrow and wild rosemary.”
Today, Earth Eagle will be poured from six revolving taps in their rustic tasting room – the only beer tasting room in Portsmouth. Rounding out the opening weekend offerings are: New England Gangsta’ — a West Coast style IPA dry hopped with Citra; Backyard Bouillabaisse — a gruit brewed with local herbs; William Wallace — a Scottish gruit featuring juniper berries and heather; and Red Ryder — an American red ale with 30% rye malt and dry hopped with Amarillo.
Normal tasting room hours will be Thursdays & Fridays, 3-7pm; Saturdays & Sundays, noon-4 p.m. Find out more online at facebook.com/eartheaglebrewings.
The passion behind Earth Eagle Brewing:
The qualities Native Americans attribute to the Earth Eagle (common wild turkey) speak to our philosophy as brewers and business owners: ecological, charitable, resilient, and unconventional. “Brewings” is our nod to the first brewers who made small batches for their families crafted from local grain, herbs, and yeast. At Earth Eagle Brewings we embrace a Belgian-inspired, pre-Reformation spirit where hops are but one of the hundreds of ingredients employed in the alchemy of brewing.
