Brian’s 2017 Year in Review

2017 has been a great year for New Hampshire beer. 2017 has also been a pretty epic year for Let’s Talk Beer. I wanted to take some time to sit down and type out my thoughts about the year in a ranked fashion. It’s something I have never done, rank breweries, beers, etc. because I don’t take the time to think about this stuff. I created some categories that hopefully you will see myself, Ben and Jeff talk about in a longer form podcast at the end of 2018. For now, here are my rankings/lists for 2017 in New Hampshire beer. Disclaimer: These opinions are mine and mine alone. They don’t represent Ben or Jeff’s thoughts. If I haven’t been to a certain brewery in 2017, chances are it won’t be on these lists. ————– Top NH Non Beer Yes I like beer. But I always try to get out of my comfort zone and try other things.

This sweet and tart spirit gave me the courage to continue to explore more into this style. I need to try more of Tamworth’s cordials in 2018. 2. Tamworth Garden White Mountain Gin – Tamworth Distilling Oh hey it’s Tamworth again. I really enjoy gin and tonics. I may have 4 or 5 a year but I stumbled upon a gin that may make me put down the beer...
