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!
Brewmaster Jeremy Hebert pipes the finished beer straight from the brewery into Jasper Murdock’s Alehouse in a nearby building on the expansive Norwich property.
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!
