Wife Persimmon and I took over in August, 2016 to spend a year traveling around the country.

We had a few lists to assist us in our journey; Best Brewpubs in Every State, Best Under-rated Brewpubs in every State, Best Small Towns in Every State and Best "Hippie" Town in Every State.

So, when we go to New Hampshire in early November, we had to travel through Keene.

It was not what I would call a "hippie" town. Full of Wal-Marts and Wal-Greens and McDonald's and Panera Breads (they're getting to be everywhere...like Subway.)

It does have its own brewery however -- although I have come to believe that you can find a brewery in every small burg across these united state.

Elm City operates in a downtown mall that appears to be losing clients. Several of the store fronts are empty, many moving on to what I assume, are cheaper environs in the city. This appears to be a modern mall, a renovated mill of some kind.

Elm City Brewing is the biggest client here with outdoor seating, a large inside and a half dozen beers on tap. The menu is basic brewpub fare although there are some interesting New England variations like a sweet potato and corn chowder soup.

The Baltic Porter was the darkest brew available and at 8%, it was robust & malty but nothing special. Some notes of coffee that disappeared quickly.

Opening at 11:30, by the time we left a bit after noon, the place was "jumping" so the locals apparently like what they eat and drink.

For us, it left something to be desired...character.

I enjoyed my experience at Elm City Brewing. It's a very clean and relaxed atmosphere. They had 8 beers on tap, ranging from light to dark, and in between. There "No Name" was a nice IPA, good on hops not too overpowering. All of the beers had good flavor, no bland ones in the bunch! I will definitely visit again next time I am in the area. Oh and Sunday-Thursday 4-6 is happy hour 2.50 pints.

My favorite place to eat is at Brew Pubs. Love the food,love the atmosphere, and of course, love the beer. Elm City Brewing has just about everything you could ask for in a brewery/brew pub. They have at least 6 fresh beers on tap at all times and the beer menu changes constantly. The brewmaster, Bill Dunn is always trying new things and has a great feel for great tasting brews. My favorites are his Brickhouse ESB and Oatmeal Pale Ale. Both outstanding. They have a great beerhall and bar with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great for large parties, but can get loud. They also have a separate dining area that is less noisy and outdoor seating during nice weather. The Brewery is located at the Colony Mill Marketplace in Keene, so if you have any wait to get in, you can walk around the stores. The food is diverse with great specials and a little bit of everything, from burgers to large entrees.
