I was contacted by a local magazine editor who asked for some photos and editorial content that focuses on local brew pubs in our area. It’s in October’s issue of NH Magazine available at newsstands everywhere but also published online. Here’s an excerpt:
Rik Marley is the brewmaster and was previously at the Woodstock Inn, Station and Brewery. He joined Flying Goose in 2009 and maintains a brewery setup below the pub. His space is limited but is able to keep 16 beers in stock and a house-made root beer. Lately, more eclectic brews have been showing up. In total they have 51 beers, and now they are exploring wild yeast and barrel aging programs. Biere de Abstrakt is a Bière de Garde aged in Pinot Noir barrels with Brettanomyces Clausenii (a wild yeast strain). The brewmaster is experimenting with more beers like this that are not standard styles, but can wake up the taste buds and leave you wanting more.
I hope to do more articles like this but am not actively seeking writing gigs. Most of these form when editors reach out to me so I do welcome the proposals but am clear that I’m not a professional, just a hobby blogger and consider this to be a fun thing to do from time to time.
