When we entered the Blue Lobster Brewing Company (as part of the Granite State Growler Tour), we felt that it was a larger brewery than Earth Eagle Brewings, and that it felt more established. The tasting room is large, and unlike any that we have visited before. The tasting room had a feel of a restaurant/bar with the way it was set up, high top tables and a nice, long blue bar.
The Blue Lobster Brewery opened in November 2012, by Michael and Roberta. They are currently open:
One of their tricks is to fill growlers with CO2 prior to filling with beer to help keep the beer fresher.
We were able to have a sneak peek at the brewery, which felt large compared to what else we had seen that day. After, we took seats at the bar for our tasting.
