This family-run brewery in the quaint town of Littleton specializes in inventive, European-style brews. Housed in a converted 18th-century grist mill on the Ammonoosuc River, the Scandinavian farmhouse-inspired tasting room is the perfect spot to sip the clean, crisp Czech- and German-inspired lagers as well as beers from their new wild beer program. You’ll want to grab a wood-fired pie and stick around.
