Sure, we’re passionate about precision brewing and complex flavors, but we also felt that our business could stand for more than delicious craft beer.
By taking the extra steps to empower our staff, give back to the community and adopt sustainable practices, we’re on our way to being recognized as a certified B-Corp business.

Because while brewing good beer is our M-O, supporting our neighbors should be too.

We are proud to have partnered with the Somersworth Fire Department to release the Bad Halligan, an American Pale Ale. One dollar of every draft sold will go to the Somersworth Firefighters Charitable Association to support Somersworth families in need. Available exclusively through our brew pub and community events, come say hi and raise a glass for your neighbor!
