The Flying Goose Brew Pub and Grille, New London NH

We stopped at The Flying Goose Brew Pub and Grille in New London, NH on our way back from Vermont. It is only a mile of off Interstate 89. We sat on the dining room side for a late lunch, we only peeked into the bar side.

They have been open since 1996, and are have an interesting operation going. They of course use local ingredients and local products to make their beers, including the hops the grow and harvest right outside the restaurant.

Solar panels are visible from the dining room. Solar power provides 100% of the energy to heat the water and tanks in the brewery.

We did not know that!

We ordered 2 samplers, the Seasonal Sampler and the Year Round Sampler.

 

Seasonal Sampler

IMG_0250

 

War Saison
Smokey, paprika flavor. Smooth taste, not overbearingly smoky.

Pale Rider Saison
Smells and taste similar to a Blue Moon. Light in color but malty and a little bit citrusy, with that coriander taste.

Famine Saison
Smells like pickles, doesn’t taste like pickles though. Taste like a typical saison, was ok, but the first 2 beers were more interesting.

 

Novemberfest
Certainly has a fall beer taste to it. Lighter than an Okterberfest. Reminded Megan of Cherrios.

The sampler trays are made from a hard plastic, which is a good idea. They could be washed a million time and will not get stained or damaged like everyone else’s wooden trays.

 

Galactus
Much cloudier, maybe a weiz with a sour? Gruit, somewhat sour, but not super sour. It was our favorite beer.

 

Year Round Sampler

Wild Flower Honey Ale – 5.1%
Brewed with flower, honey and aromatic malts. Megan expected more honey upfront, but was hidden by the malts.

 

Perley Town English Style IPA – 6.69%
Good, unique ipa flavor. Smooth, a little less hoppy. Made with barista malts for a distinct bready malt influence.

Lupulin Suplex Double IPA – 8.7%
Really good double, flavorful, strong but tasty with a bright, citrusy, hop flavor. Megan liked this for a double, still not her type of beer though.

 

Crocket’s Corner Oatmeal Stout – 8%
Good, very dark color, smooth and flavorful taste, slightly roasted. Megan was hoping for a little more flavor from it.

Mikey’s Vyce Black IPA – 7.74%
Very hoppy, strong flavor. A little too strong, you can taste the high alcohol content a little bit.

It was $5.99 for a 5 sampler tray. They had 8 regular and 5 seasonal beers on tap when we were there. We could pick the year round/regular beers, but they were out of 4 different beers that were on the menu.

Kielbasa Flatbread

We ordered an appetizer to have with the sampler trays. It was really good.

For dinner…..

Meatloaf Sandwich

 

Really good, homemade, good cheese, good bbq sauce, the fries were good. The bread seems fresh liked it was baked there.

Siracha Chicken Sandwich

 Really spicey, but in a good way.

The restaurant was rustic, and very home like.
