Celebrating small
Brewfest highlights Seacoast microbreweries

 Experience the full scope of what the Seacoast’s craft beer scene has to offer when 7th Settlement Brewery hosts the third annual Seacoast Microbrew Festival on Saturday, July 15, at Henry Law Park, along the Cochecho River bank in Dover.

This year’s fest will feature 20 Seacoast area breweries as well as local food vendors, live music, games and activities. 
“It’s a celebration of the growing industry of microbreweries,” event coordinator Kate Sanders said. “It’s meant to highlight the small-barrel breweries and the craftsmen that brew in small batches, as opposed to the large domestic breweries.” 
The lineup will include all 17 breweries that participated in last year’s fest as well as three newcomers: Bad Labs Beer Co. of Somersworth, Four Pines Brewing Co. of Hampton and Woodland Farms Brewery of Kittery, Maine. 
“It’s a nice opportunity to hit all the breweries you like in one spot and one afternoon, but also to learn about some of the new breweries or even the breweries that have been around for a while that you just never had the chance to hit,” Sanders said.
The breweries will have booths set up throughout two tents. Upon admission, attendees will receive a four-ounce tasting glass to use for unlimited sampling. VIP ticket holders will be granted admission to the festival one hour earlier than the general admission crowd and will receive a Seacoast Microbrew Festival T-shirt. 
Each brewery will have two brewmasters or representatives who will serve the samples and talk with tasters about what makes their brews unique. 
“The breweries all have a different specialty and style, so it’s a great opportunity to meet the brewers and learn about their craft and taste some of these special brews that you can find there [at their brewery],” Sanders said. 
The breweries will each feature two beers, which may be their flagship varieties or special batches brewed exclusively for the festival. A range of styles will be represented, including IPAs, pale ales, porters and more. Sanders said she also expects there to be a number of sour beers and farmhouse ales this year. 
“We’re seeing a huge trend with those,” she said. “I think we’re going to see a lot more of those than we’ve seen in the past.” 
In addition to the beers, the festival will feature local restaurants and food trucks selling food, live music by local bands and lawn games and activities like a slip-and-slide, giant Jenga and cornhole.
