The Brewery at the Norwich Inn

The Norwich Inn has a long and storied history, going back to 1797. President James Monroe dined at the Inn in 1817 during the first year of his presidency while exploring what was at that time America’s Northern Frontier by horse.

Jasper Murdock’s Alehouse came to the Norwich Inn much later, in 1993, and remains true to it’s Vermont small batch roots, producing only enough beer for the Inn’s Restaurant and Pub guests  (including 22 oz, cases and 5-gallon kegs to go). They are known for finely crafted English Style Ales and Lagers and using only the freshest ingredients, including hops from their on site hops garden, making this a shining example of Vermont farm-to-bottle goodness.

The Victorian style Inn as it stands dates back to 1890.

Today’s selection includes a Bohemian Pilsner, Old Pewt Pale Ale, Whistling Pig Red Ale, Private Stock ’15, and Second Wind Oatmeal Stout. Out favorite in the Belgian Strong Ale! CHEERS!

Nowich is one of the few towns in America with an interstate public school system. Local students study alongside those from Hanover, New Hampshire, across the Connecticut River. Indeed, the two towns are intertwined culturally and economically by proximity to Ivy League educator Dartmouth College. The Brewery at Norwich Inn is a great place to stop when you are visiting Dartmouth as it is only a mile and change down the road from campus. Check them out at 325 Main Street when you’re looking for a fresh beer and a taste of Vermont!

Rogue Ales & Spirits Portland

Rogue Ales & Spirits was founded in Ashland, California in 1988 by Nike alumni Bob Woodell, Rob Strasser and Jack Joyce with a mission “to brew the finest varietal ales & spirits in the world!” Mission accomplished! Rogue Ales holds a special place in our hearts, embodying all we love in a brewery – farm to bottle freshness, community beer and a revolutionary spirit.

Rogue has come a long way since their original Ashland location…all the way to Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District! Today’s beer flight at the brewpub = Issaquah White Frog Ale (Witbier), Double Chocolate Stout, Wasted Sea Star Purple Ale (brewed with purple corn nectar!) and Morimoto Soba (Buckwheat) Ale! Cheers!
