The Nutfield Brewing Company was aided in their beer designs by the famous Alan Pugsley, who has helped a number of U.S. brewing greats get off the ground. His focus is on brewing authentic, true-to-style English beers, using the renowned Ringwood yeast, and his influence is clear in this beer. Expect a big, sweet, malty nose with some cascade and fuggles hop tones. The taste reveals nice mixes of sweet (malts) and dry (hops), with touches of tartness supplied by the various hop varieties, and a buttery influence contributed by the diacetyl from the Ringwood yeast. We found it to be refreshingly crisp, expertly balanced, with distinct nutty highlights and a dry finish. For a partnering that’s tough to beat, try this with grilled burgers or Swordfish.
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, then 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. 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. After formally evicting the then-current tenants (a rather intimidating flock of pigeons), the difficult job of converting the space from making “shoes” to “brews” was begun. 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. The brewery creates New Hampshire’s number one selling micro-brew, and is considered a true taste of New England.
