Londonderry Historical Society presents Glenn Knoblock’s program on the fascinating history of New Hampshire’s beer and ale brewing industry on Tuesday June 18 at 7 p.m.at the Historical Society’s Parmenter Barn, 140 Pillsbury Rd. in Londonderry. The program is sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council, and admission is free. Following the program, Londonderry’s own Long Blue Cat Brewery will be offering free samples of some of its beers. Knoblock will explore the history of brewing from colonial days, when it was home- and tavern- based, to today’s modern breweries and brew pubs. Unusual and rare photos and advertisements document this changing industry and the state’s earliest brewers, including the renowned Frank Jones. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state are also discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era.
