The 5th Annual Seacoast Microbrew Festival will be held Saturday, September 28th 2019 along the granite-lined banks of the Cocheco River at Henry Law Park in Dover, NH.
Boasting 25 breweries, this will be the biggest fest yet, with local breweries including veterans like Stoneface, Deciduous, and Garrison City, but also newcomers like York Beach Brewing Co. and Tilton Brothers. The University of New Hampshire’s “Brew Lab” will also be pouring samples brewed by students of the Brewing Science program.
The brewfest, once hosted by 7th Settlement Brewery (that closed in late 2018), will be headed by Chapel + Main – that just celebrated their 2nd year anniversary (located at 83 Main Street in the Janeto’s Plaza in Dover). Dave Yarrington, head brewer and co-owner of Chapel + Main, couldn’t be more excited – “It’s a chance for all of us to come together and celebrate the unique community we’ve built on the Seacoast through craft brewing,” Yarrington says.
The focus of the festival has been and will always be the celebration of the breweries along the Seacoast within the Great Bay Watershed. While the Great Bay itself spans 6,000 acres, the watershed, with its channels and tributaries, covers more than 1,000 square miles thru out New Hampshire and Maine. “The water is what links us and is what gives us our identity,” says Kate Sanders, event organizer and founder.
The festival will also feature live music and entertainment as well as offerings from some of the Seacoast’s finest restaurants and chefs.
