On Your Way to Portsmouth: Rockingham 2nd Anniversary & Kelsen Vinatta Release
Feb 25 @ 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm


On your way to Portsmouth, there are a couple of fun things going on in NH…….

Rockingham Brewing 2nd Anniversary:   We’re turning 2! Help us celebrate with some old favorites, rare offerings, oak aged variations and two brand new beers! All will be available for pints and growler fills. We’ll be rotating the draft list each day, Thursday through Sunday– Check our website for the current list! http://www.rockinghambrewing.com/current-draft-list/

1 Corporate Park Dr Derry, NH 03038 Saturday, February 25th 12-7p


Kelsen Vinatta Day:  Mark your calendars! This year’s release of Vinátta RIS will be on February 25 with doors opening at 11am sharp. We brewed twice as much this year and can’t wait to share this year’s batch with you.

Vinátta is a bold 12% Russian Imperial Stout that pushes the limits of an already extreme beer style. It has a big, chewy mouthful and has flavors of chocolate and dark fruit.

Friendship is about strength, longevity and working together. Vinátta, Norse for friendship, is a Russian Imperial Stout brewed by friends, to be enjoyed with friends, today, or years to come. Vinátta is a collaboration with Cask and Vine.
