SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BREWERS
Proceeds from the Keep NH Brewing Festival will benefit the NH Brewers Association in their efforts to promote, protect, educate and advocate for craft beer and brewers in NH. This is our signature event of the year and the primary fundraiser for our non-profit. Hence why we truly are "for the brewers, by the brewers."
Thank you for your support!
PARTICIPATING BREWERIES (50+):
Free cold water will be available at water stations throughout the festival grounds. We suggest a one-to-one ratio of beer to water during your sampling. You may use your tasting glass or bring an empty water bottle to the event, which will be inspected upon entry. No outside alcohol is permitted.
Food & Retail Vendors
An array of local food trucks, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and craft-centric merch from local artisans will be available for purchase for the duration of the festival. Please note, that there is no ATM on-site, and make sure to bring cash as most vendors prefer cash only.
Please leave your furry friends at home. No pets are allowed, only service animals are able to accompany a ticket holder.
Personal Items Policy
The NH Brewers Association strongly encourages all attendees to be vaccinated for COVID-19, for those not fully vaccinated we do recommend face masks. We will be following all CDC, state, and local guidelines to ensure the health and wellbeing of our attendees.
As of now, New Hampshire does not mandate mask use statewide and does not impose specific restrictions on businesses. Individual communities, however, adopt their own ordinances and may change them without notice.
