Milly’s Tavern began in 1994 as the Stark Mill Brewery and officially opened its doors as Milly’s in January of 2002. Milly’s Tavern opened through the hard work and love of the craft by Master Brewer Peter Telge, a New Hampshire native, who has been brewing his own beers for the better part of 20 years.
Stark Mill Brewery
With the closing of the Stark Mill Brewery and the many changes that have befell the city in the recent years, Peter felt that Manchester, as New Hampshire’s Queen City, was sadly falling to the way of commercial and contract beers. He, with a dedicated following of fans of his brew, set to work reopening the brewery as “Milly’s Tavern,” now proudly operating as Manchester’s only craft brew pub.
The Milly’s Tavern Community
The community that has developed around the craft brew at Milly’s, began as regular pub guests and friends and grew into one of the Manchester area’s finest live entertainment and private function venues. Featuring a state of the art sound system on the main stage and in the Millyard Function room, Milly’s has become a gathering place for every occasion. The versatile space can accommodate private parties up to 300 people, or host to the area’s hottest bands. The main pub and dining area boasts Manchester’s largest club-style stage and employs their own in-house sound tech to ensure the best quality of sound for every live show.
The staff at Milly’s Tavern believe that giving back to the community is more important than anything else they do. The best days of the year are spent gathering groups of people together to enjoy Milly’s craft-brew and tasty pub faire, while raising funds for local charities & non-profit organizations. Peter believes that since he has been able to utilize his restaurant and brewery space to create memorable events and private functions over the years, that utilizing this space for charity events is not only the right thing to do, but a top priority for he and the Milly’s Tavern team!
