Brewing fun in fall
Henniker Brewing Co.’s Flap Jack Fall Fest returns

09/27/18

Fall has arrived, and Henniker Brewing Co. is once again celebrating the turn of the season with an all-ages festival centered around the special release of a limited-edition beer.
The Flap Jack Fall Festival, which returns to the brewery on Saturday, Sept. 29, from noon to 5 p.m., will feature the seasonal unveiling of Flap Jack, a maple double brown ale brewed with maple syrup sourced from E.C. Thomas & Sons sugar house in Vermont. 
The festival will also feature local vendors, games, live music, beer samples, brewery tours and more. 
“[The festival] is definitely one of our biggest events that we’ve had. We don’t charge for entry, so people can just show up and pay as they go,” Henniker Brewing Co. Marketing Director Ryan Maiola said.
The Flap Jack ale sold out so fast at last year’s festival, Maiola said, that larger quantities are expected to be brewed and ready for the event this year. The ale will be available for tasters, pints and four-pack 16-ounce cans during and following the festival while supplies last, according to Maiola.
“It’s a great beer for fall. There’s a little maple flavor in there, but it’s not overwhelmingly sweet,” he said. “It’s got a nice malty base to it, so it goes well with any type of hearty or comfort food for around this time of year, so definitely for beef stew or steak or any type of meal like that. … Some people have even said they like to put it on their waffles in the morning. We’ve paired it with beer dinners we’ve done as well.”
Five local food vendors are expected to be on hand at the event, each with their own unique offerings, according to Maiola. Bardo Farm out of Croydon, for example, will be doing a pig roast. The other vendors selling food are Taco Beyondo of Hillsborough offering specialty tacos, burritos, quesadillas and other Tex-Mex items; Boogalows Island BBQ of Seabrook offering Jamaican jerk chicken and Jamaican beef burritos; the Blackwater Mustard Co. of Contoocook offering several homemade specialty mustards for sale (including one mustard using Henniker Brewing Co.’s Working Man’s Porter) and Farley’s Fries of Newport. KBK Sports out of Nashua, which specializes in sports memorabilia, will also be there to sell signed jerseys, photographs and more as part of a silent auction.
A full lineup of local musicians will also be featured, including saxophonist Matt “the Sax” of Stoddard, folkgrass group Tyler Road of Contoocook and Americana group Whiskey Duo of Lowell, Mass. Other features will include cornhole games, stein-hoisting competitions and more.
“It’s got a really nice community kind of feel to it, and since it’s all ages, you can bring the kids or the dog if you want,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of people come out and just make a day out of it.”
Maiola said arriving early is recommended in case the parking lot down the road from the brewery fills up.
