We went to Martha’s Exchange located in Nashua, NH for a quick bite after going to Anheuser- Busch in Merrimack, NH with Jason and Maureen. It was relatively close by, so going there for food made a lot of sense. Seeing that it was a brewpub, we had to try some beer while we were there. It was a nice fall afternoon, so we took advantage of the weather and sat outside. The outside seating area was part sidewalk, part in an alleyway. The inside seating areas all had white linen tablecloths.
Prior to ordering, we noticed a sign on the table that said that some appetizers were half price and drinks were buy one get one for a penny until six pm. We asked if the sampler was included in the B1G1, and the waitress thought so, so we ordered two- one for Jason and Maureen and one for Mark and I. We also ordered buffalo chicken fingers and nachos. We found out a few minutes later that the sampler was not included, but the glasses were 4 ounce pours, so that was ok.
Volstead 33′: good, familiart flavor. Someone commented that it reminded them of a Harpoon beer
Warriors Gold IPA: Whoa! Hoppy! Good flavor.
Maureen said it was too hoppy for her.
Jason and Mark enjoyed it, said it was fine, that it taste like beer.
Summers Sunset: spicy notes, ginger
Jason, Mark and I thought it was good
Maureen said it wasn’t too bad
Dr. Hoppenstein: a Double IPA. Good first taste, but I felt it had a medicine like finish.
20th Anninversary Old Ale: cinnamon, candied oranges and pears. Nice, flavorful, surprising.
Maureen didn’t like how it finished.
Jason, Mark and I enjoyed.
Oktoberfest Lager: typical tasting. Mark said it was alright.
Maureen liked it.
Revolution Red: Mark and Jason said it was alright. I thought it had a mediocre taste.
Steeplechase Porter: Jason gave it a thumbs up, Mark thought it was a light porter.
I thought it was a good porter.
Maureen thought it was disgusting.
After our tasting, we each ordered a drink. Maureen didn’t find a beer she liked, so she got a Washington State Riesling- Chateau ste Michelle Reisling. Jason, Mark and I all ordered the 20th Anniversary Old Ale (times 2!). For the B1G1 for a penny deal, it was per person, not total across the check, so we had to enjoy more than one (with that Ale percentage, it was good that Maureen was driving us home!).
