Petit Classification

Owners Bill and Ellen Herlicka quickly established White Birch as a higher quality New Hampshire brewery.   Although smaller than most classified breweries, their quality and regional influence is far greater than their capacity would lead you to believe.

Comment:

White Birch tends to offer two year-round products, two seasonals/season, and a brewer’s choice or two; usually six beers available at any given time.  In addition to the regular offerings, they did have an unusual apprentice program in which interested people produced a beer of their choosing, which was then sold through the brewery.  (Edit 9/1/16: The program was slated to be discontinued at the end of 2014; status unknown)

Anyway, you can find cans of this stuff around New England, sometimes into the New York metro market, where very few people realize how good it is.  A real highlight is the Berliner Weisse, and believe it or not, their fruit versions of the Weisse are incredible.

7 barrel capacity.  Look for more innovative approaches to the craft from this small but mighty brewery.
