An epic collaboration beer and festival will highlight the September 21 event
PRESS RELEASE / August 23, 2019 (Hampton, NH) — New Hampshire’s craft brewery is turning 25 this fall and to celebrate, Smuttynose Brewing Co. will collaborate with 30+ regional breweries, including some of the biggest names in beer, for a beer festival and collaboration beer unlike anything before it.
On Saturday, September 21, Smuttynose will host a beer festival at its 11-acre, Gold LEED-certified craft brewery in Hampton, New Hampshire, an event that will feature sample pours from more than 30 breweries along the East Coast in addition to music, food, games and entertainment. Information and tickets.
That same morning, participating breweries will gather in the Smuttynose brewhouse to brew a one-of-a-
kind celebration beer – a riff on a Smuttynose classic and the culmination of more than a month of collaborative recipe development. The resulting beer will be released exclusively and in a limited quantity throughout New England and New York in 16-oz four-pack cans in October, featuring a collector’s label proudly displaying the names of every participating brewery.
“Our 25th birthday is a very big deal to us, a time to appreciate how far we’ve come and get excited for
what’s ahead,” said Smuttynose CMO Aubree Giarrosso. “For the celebration, we really wanted to focus
the spotlight on the industry as a whole, the incredible brewers and breweries old and new who make
doing what we do so rewarding. We’re thrilled and humbled that so many inspiring breweries wanted to
join us to mark the occasion in such a unique and memorable way.”
Some of the participating breweries include: The Portsmouth Brewery (NH), Stoneface Brewing Co. (NH),
Allagash Brewing Company (ME), Bissell Brothers (ME), Oxbow Brewing (ME), Sixpoint Brewery (NY), Black
Hog Brewing Co. (CT), Lord Hobo Brewing Company (MA), Aeronaut Brewing Company (MA), Lamplighter
Brewing Co. (MA), Notch Brewing (MA), and Dock Street Brewing Co. (PA).
A portion of all beer sales from the festival will benefit Warrior Expeditions, a New England-based
organization that leverages the therapeutic benefits of long-distance outdoor expeditions through its
Warrior Hike, Warrior Bike, and Warrior Paddle programs.
