Summer Season Finale: A Weeklong Celebration!
Around this time of year, we find ourselves in a frenzy to cram in all the summer fun we swore we’d have before it’s too late. To that end, we’ve planned a week of events we’re eager to try, and from Monday, August 27th through Friday, August 31st, we want you to hang with us as much as possible to close out summer 2018 with a bang!
Monday, August 27th
Mug Club Only Growler Tour
We love our Mug Club, and we’re super psyched for everyone who reupped – and our newest members, too! So we thought now’s the perfect time to celebrate with an end of summer beer tour with Granite State Growler Tours.
Tickets are only available to Mug Club members, and include a trip ‘Ovah to Dovah’ where we’ll visit two of Dover’s fine brewing establishments (which will likely include a preview of yet-to-open Empty Pint Brewery), with a stop at Loaded Question in Portsmouth on the way home. Plus, we promise to feed you along the way, too. There are only 12 tickets available, and it’s first come first serve, so grab yours today! We are selling tickets to you at our cost – which is $45 – and includes stops at three breweries (with beer at each), plus dinner. You can purchase tickets here!
Tuesday, August 28th, 6:30-8:30pm, Sunset Harbor Cruise
This one was big on our list this summer! Join us for a two hour cruise out of Rye Harbor chartered just for us through Granite State Whale Watch and watch the sun go down surrounded by friends, with your favorite can of Throwback beer in hand. Tickets are $25 each and include a Throwback can of your choice. Cans will be for sale on the boat, as well as other beverages, and a few light snacks. You can grab your tickets here.

Hoppin’ Summer Series Release: Dry Hopped Lactose Sour
It’s only fitting that we release a very summery drinking beer during our Summer Season Finale week. The beer is a dry hopped lactose sour, and it has the aroma of a perfectly ripe tropical fruit basket (papaya, mango, sweet pineapple) with flavors of grapefruit and lemon peel. All of these flavors are coming from the Strata and Meridian hops that we used to dry hop the beer. The use of lactose helps to provide a very balanced tartness and a soft and almost creamy mouthfeel. Based upon tasting this beer straight from the fermenter, our Lead Brewer Chris asked if we could scrap all of our beers and just make this one. The answer was obviously ‘no’, but we are quite excited to get this one into your bellies!
Cribbage Tournament, 6:15pm
Also on our list – play more games! So it’s just fitting that our monthly Cribbage Tournament should fall during our Season Finale week. Let us know by 4pm that day if you’d like to play, and enjoy the warmth of good company, beautiful weather, and a few beers (of course).
Thursday, August 30th
Brush & Beer: Paint Your Own Beer Stein, 6pm
How kick ass🐴 does it sound to paint your own awesome 1 litre beer stein while hanging out in our beer garden? Join us at 6pm at Throwback Brewery as To Your Art’s Content offers up all the tools you’ll need to create your one-of-a-kind masterpiece. All stein’s will have the Throwback logo on it, but the choice of colors and designs are up to you! And, yes, the stein is really as big as co-founder Annette’s head! 🙂 This unique experience is $35. Please reserve a spot here so we know how many mugs to make.
Live Music: April Renzella in Our Beer Garden, 7-9pm
Also on Thursday night, join Boston-based April Renzella for an acoustic set out in our beer garden from 7-9pm!
Friday, August 31st, 11am-9pm
Labor Day Weekend Kickoff
Join us on Friday for delicious menu specials and our wide variety of beer styles to close out your summer and kick start your holiday weekend! To make things a bit more special, we are going to be tapping a cask of our Love Me Long Time Bohemian Pilsener that’s been finished with white peaches.
Hope to see you at many of these sun-drenched events!
