Out.Haus Ales is a three-barrel nano-brewery in Northwood, NH. Built in the garage during the summer of 2013, the brewery was officially licensed November 2013 and the beer became available January 2014.
When I originally decided to open the brewery I had a
simple plan: Set up a one-barrel system on my own land;
run it there for a while; if it doesn't get big enough to
expand within two years, I'd close it up with minimal
loss. It was only after about seven or eight months that I
started looking for a new, bigger location. My main
priority was I wanted to stay in Northwood if I could.
I finally found the place late in 2014 at 442 1st NH Turnpike. I signed the lease in January of 2015, moved in in February, started brewing again in March, and opened up the tasting room in April.
We first moved to Northwood, NH in 1999, and a large
number of our friends lived in the Boston area in MA. We
were all part of an online community, and a bunch of us
had names for our homes that ended in "Haus". Our house
was so far out of the way, both in distance, (even in NH
it's about 30 minutes to anywhere from here,) and access
to major highways, so we took the name Out Haus.
