Brew News: Go Fourth and celebrate independent breweries

As we head into this Independence Day weekend, enjoy an extra-long run-down of local brews available across southern New Hampshire.

Lithermans Limited Brewery in Concord brought back Lil Peach of My Heart Sour Ale (6 percent), a peach-based sour brewed with “an enormous amount” of peaches. It’s described as refreshingly tart. It’s available in cans and on draft throughout New Hampshire.

On June 4, 603 Brewery in Londonderry celebrated its 10th anniversary. Brewers from 14 different New Hampshire breweries collaborated with the 603 crew to make their 10th Anniversary IPA (6.03 percent), which is brewed with Strata, Simcoe, Centennial and Pacific Sunrise hops.

They also released a Cuvee (12.9 percent), which is a blend of some of their favorite barrel-aged beers, on June 3. The blend includes Cuvee De 603, The Mitz Imperial Stout, 603 Barleywine, all finished in Merlot barrels. They’re sold in 16.9-ounce bottles. Supply is extremely limited.

On June 3, Rockingham Brewing Company in Derry came out with a brand new beer called Four Generals (6.5 percent). This copper IPA was brewed to commemorate the Town of Nottingham’s 300th anniversary. It’s named in honor of the four generals who served and lived at Nottingham Square during the War of Independence; Joseph Cilley, Henry Dearborn, Henry Butler and Thomas Bartlett.
