Flap Jack

 
The Beer
Fall is here, friends! Grab your sweaters. As the temperature drops, we here at the brewery are reaching for heartier, darker beers and think you should too. Flap Jack is brewed in the spirit of true New Englanders: a robust Double Brown Ale with locally sourced maple syrup sturdy enough to stand up to the chilly nights and shortening days. Enjoy this beer with roast lamb leg, pot pie, and leaf peeping!

The Story
As the leaves start turning, here at the brewery we start to hear a ghostly voice on the wind, whispering “When are you guys going to make a pumpkin beeeer…” With pride in our chest and fire in our eyes we answer “Never. Pumpkin beers are gross.” Flap Jack is the un-pumpkin beer: sturdy, rustic, with all the complexity our beloved English malts can provide, and a touch of pure New England maple syrup. Pumpkins are for porches, malts are for making beer.

Bert's Better Beers' Draft Pick(s) of the Week:

The Selkie Story

It all started with a trip to Scotland and a chance encounter with a seaweed beer. Unable to forget that memorable taste, Joanne returned to the States with a mission to bring it to the Seacoast.

In the summer of 2016, our first-ever, full-bodied Scottish Red Ale (4.9%ABV) was brewed with 60 pounds of locally harvested Sugar Kelp from UNH’s Aquaculture program. And so, Selkie was born. 

Selkie showcases a salty, briney, slightly vegetal flavor with a sweet malt body. Matt says it reminds him growing up near the ocean in California. 

“I always remember when I was a kid and my parents would take me to the ocean, and I’d go swimming and hours later after you’d been out of the water, you’d lick your lips and taste that ocean. And that was what I was getting off this beer, it wasn’t like, ocean right in your face, it was nice Scottish Red Ale, but when you were done you might lick your lips and taste this nice salty briney flavor.”

So what makes Selkie so unique (aside from the seaweed, obviously)? We partnered with the UNH Aquaculture program, who had been experimenting with kelp in their Steal Head Trout fish farms to help absorb excess nutrients produced by the fish. Lines of rope that had been inoculated with kelp spawn worked fabulously as a bio filter. So by growing and harvesting the kelp, a symbiotic relationship is created, making for healthy kelp and cleaner water!
