Named in recognition of the Irish Potato Famine of 1847, Black 47 is a true-to-style Irish Dry Stout, brewed with a combination of 2-row pale & chocolate malts and roasted barley. To balance this hefty grain bill, a blend of four different hop varieties are used. Expect notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans and a touch of black treacle. This stout starts out semi-sweet like dark chocolate but quickly develops a dry, bitter, roasty character. Finishes with notes of espresso and a touch of citrus sweetness. Nice and dry, and best served at cellar temps and above. Overall, a very dark, roasted, robustly bitter brew. For pairing, try making a beer float: add 2 scoops of chocolate (or vanilla) ice cream to a pint glass, slowly adding the beer by tilting the glass and pouring down the side. Is it disrespectful to serve a famine-themed beer as a decadent dessert? Oh well…
Leaving their home in the port city of Derry, Ireland, a small group of families set sail in the spring of 1719 for freedom and 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 sought to settle his own territory in his hometown of Derry with the creation of the Old Nutfield Brewing Company. In August of 1994, with help from the Derry Development and Preservation Corporation, Jim leased space in an abandoned shoe factory. After months of fundraising, Jim and his wife, Tina, evicted the then-current tenants of the old shoe factory (a rather intimidating flock of pigeons), and began the job of converting the space from shoe production to brew production. One full year after procuring the space, the first beer ingredients were added to their traditional copper and brick brew kettle as they brewed their first commercial batch. Now in their 13th year, New Hampshire's "True Craft Brewery" is also the biggest microbrewery in the state. For more information, call (603) 434-9678 or check out their web site at www.nutfield.com.
