Black 47 Stout is named in recognition of the Irish Potato Famine in 1847. It is a true Irish Dry Stout, brewed with a combination of 2-row pale and chocolate malts as well as roasted and flaked barley. To balance the malts, East Kent Goldings and Cascade hops are used. Immediately note a beautiful dark tan head that gives off hints of dark malt and light chocolaty notes. This stout starts out moderately sweet with a nice subtle hop bitterness in the finish. You’ll find that the flavors really express themselves as this beer gets warmer so do your best to be patient! Good luck with that one. Overall, a very dark, roasted, bitter, creamy ale loaded with flavor. Nice with chocolate desserts or sandwiches made on pumpernickel bread.
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.
