New Hampshire's craft breweries are giving the state's economy a buzz. According to the NH Brewers Association, there are 81 craft breweries in the Granite State with an average of 7.6 breweries per capita, ranking seventh in the nation. The economic effect results in more than 4,000 jobs and $452 million worth of economic output. New Hampshire brewers produce more than 110,000 barrels of craft beer each year.
The NH Brewers Association with NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs Commissioner Taylor Caswell and State Senator Cindy Rosenwald recently toured three Nashua breweries—Martha’s Exchange, White Birch Brewing and Spyglass Brewing Co.—to highlight the community impact brewers have on the state.
