When you’re buying beer from an Irishman, you tend to think that he most likely produces Irish Stouts better than, say perhaps, English Ales or other styles more commonly associated with that “other island”. And although we were most impressed with Jim’s entire line, we were exceptionally fond of his Irish Stout and think you will be too! Brewed with a combination of two-row pale and chocolate malts as well as roasted barley, we found it quite full and satisfying. Note a light brown head that keeps very well and hints of alcohol and sweet malt on the nose. The first sip is moderately sweet, but turns slightly bitter towards the end. This beer is exceptionally smooth and should be served only after being out of the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. You’ll find that the flavors really express themselves as this beer gets warmer. Overall, a classic interpretation of one of our favorite styles.
In April of 1719, a small group of families made the pilgrimage from their home in the port city of Derry, Ireland searching for freedom in a new land. They settled in New England in what became the town of Derry, New Hampshire. Derry at the time was known as The Nutfield Colony. In the tradition of his pioneering Irish ancestors, Jim Killeen set out to make a name for himself in his hometown of Derry, with the creation of the Nutfield Brewing Company.

In August of 1994, with help from the Derry Development and Preservation Corporation, Jim leased 8,000 square feet in the then abandoned Klev-Bro Shoe building with the intent of making the transition from “shoes” to “brews”! After securing a local Community Development Block Grant, private investors and a loan from the Small Business Association of New Hampshire, Killeen and his wife, Tina, set out to make Jim’s vision a reality. One full year after the wheels were set in motion for the new brewery, the facility was officially online and began full production in August of 1995.

The logo for the brewery was meant to reflect the strength, beauty and tradition of the area in which it is situated. An American chestnut tree stands in a field with the beautiful backdrop of New Hampshire’s Old Man of the Mountain majestically resting in the distance. The Nutfield Brewing Company is considered “New Hampshire’s True Craft Brewery” specializing in premium handcrafted ales. Using a 25-barrel brewing system, Nutfield produces approximately 600 cases of beer from each batch. The brewery creates New Hampshire’s number one selling micro-brew, and can be considered a true taste of New England.
