As the premier brewery in Manchester, NH, we’ve been hard at work. We’ve been crafting our own delicious beer and have recently been inundated with a great deal of accolades. Just recently, at the, “Great International Beer Festival,” in Rhode Island, our, “Bo’s Scotch Ale,” took home the gold medal and our, “Mt. Uncannonuc Cream Ale,” took home the silver. We’re also honored to have been voted New England’s #1 brewery by WMUR Channel 9’s, “Viewers Choice Awards.”
Accolades aside, we’d like to take this time to remind you that we have Growlers for sale. A growler is a jug that you can have filled at Mitty’s Tavern and bring home with you. You can enjoy our delicious microbrews anywhere you want!
For $26 (low ABV) or $28 (high ABV), you can take home a growler for yourself. And, just like today, we have constant deals on refilling your growler. From 11am to 11pm today, we’re offering $5 off growler fills and $7 off new growlers!

Uncanoonuc Cream Ale at this year’s “Great International Beer Festival” in Rhode Island. Two steps closer to taking over the world!!! Which brings me to my next point of conversation. Starting in early 2014 we will be distributing our fine beer to a store near you! That’s right you heard it here first.

Nov. 27th The Adapt, Overcome, Live Benefit for Army Medic SPC Calvin Todd
Please join us on Wednesday, November 27, 2013, at the Bo’s Function Facility inside Milly’s Tavern, as we devote a night of fun to local war hero, Army Medic SPC Calvin Todd. Serving our country, Calvin sustained severe injuries in Afghanistan. While running to the aid of three other wounded American soldiers, Calvin was the victim of a pressure plate IED that left him with a traumatic brain injury and the loss of his lower leg. The night’s activities and proceeds will go toward specially adapting Calvin’s home. He and his family need their home to be adapted to accommodate a wheelchair, and aid him in living independently with his wife and one year old son. The night will consist of live entertainment, silent auctions, 50/50 raffles, as well as food and drinks, while we celebrate Calvin’s uncompromised bravery on Thanksgiving Eve.
For more information on Calvin’s story, go to www.adaptovercomelive.com. We thank you in advance and look forward to seeing you at Milly’s Tavern.

The lineup for live music and entertainment on Saturday, September 14th will feature 3 great musical acts:
9PM Kenny Brothers Trio
10PM Safer By The Shore
The Kenny Brothers Trio has been rocking out, perfecting their sound for more than five years as it evolves. Originally from Stratham NH, these three brothers started as most bands do with humble beginnings: playing in their garage. With the influences of sounds from Allman Brothers and other jazzy and funky beats, Billy, Taylor, and “Little” Joey keep it all together by making organic music that is true to their uniqueness.
Safer By The Shore explores the journey of life through a musical experience. Describing themselves as having an alternative rock sound, the Manchester, NH-based band ventures through a wave of calmness with a mix of explosive energy. Led by Brien Sweet, who worked as a solo artist until 2012, the electro-dance/acoustic rock band features the talents of J. “Rufus” Sjostrom on guitar, Jinsoo “Dr. Acula” Kim on bass, and Rich Delmonico on drums.
Last but certainly not least Milly’s will feature the sounds of electronic-trip-hop rock artist, Akisma. Daring and bold, Akisma is the musical adventure of Jess Jacobs. She sings, mixes, records, and plays a variety of different instruments. By combining synthesizers, voice, and videos she creates multi-layered and dynamic music adding to her expressive performance.
With something different every Saturday, you’re sure to have fun! Come join us for a good time at Milly’s Tavern in Manchester, NH for live music, great food, and awesome brews.
Some of the best bars in Manchester, NH such as Milly’s Tavern know a secret about beer and its affect on your creative side. So, you want to drink and also be creative, you say? Good news—it’s possible! If you feel like you can’t come up with something clever and get your mind focused, beer surprisingly can help.
Having a beer or two has been proven to help your brain to be more efficient and alert, especially in a creative manner. According to Greg Johnson, a beer expert and writer for beerguystv.com, consuming beer actually has some real benefits.
“While caffeine pulls a number on your brain to make you feel like you have more energy, alcohol has its own way of influencing your creativity,” Johnson mentions.
After a few drinks, you may feel less focused and begin to care less about what’s happening around you. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago found that this can actually be helpful, getting your creative juices flowing.
It must be remembered however, that moderation is the key. Drinking a lot of alcohol will not do you much good.
How will drinking beer help my creative side?
Looking at it from a scientific perspective, creativity comes from your ability to think of something original. Your brain has connections from pre-existing ideas, and these connections are controlled by neurotransmitters.
Adenosine is what alerts your brain when you are running out of energy. It reacts by slowing down the connections in your brain by binding to adenosine receptors. Think of this as the battery status monitor in your brain.
If your energy levels get low, this will tell your brain and thus your creative ideas and other functions will start to slow down. This is that lull many people feel in the middle of a long workday. After hours of working, you begin to feel tired almost as if you have no more fuel to keep feeding your innovation. In this aspect, beer can help to de-stress you a bit, allowing for your creative ideas to take hold.
Come down to Milly’s Tavern in Manchester, NH and get creative by trying some of our delicious brews!
Looking for bars in Manchester, NH that are familiar with the fine art of a great sour beer? Look no further—Milly’s Tavern is way ahead of the trend! Before refrigeration and advances in the science of fermentation in the mid-nineteenth century, most if not all beers were made sour to a certain extent.
Pre-modern sanitation was not fully understood and so natural bacteria like Lactobacillus and Pediococcus, as well as Brettanomyces yeasts, made for a funky-tasting, deliciously sour beer. Nowadays, brewing conventions are all about putting wood barrels to use, releasing hundreds of commercial examples of great American sour ales.
Belgian sour beers first came to the United States for commercial availability in the 1970’s, providing a basic guideline, if you will, into the newly discovered tarter domestic beers. The whole idea and art of perfecting the sour and ever-tart beers was widely misunderstood and initially led drinkers to think that the beer had gone bad.
It wasn’t until 1997 that these kinds of beers were not available in the U.S. beyond a few shipments that were smuggled in. It took almost ten full years for many people to realize that this is what a traditional “sour” beer is in fact supposed to taste like.
If you want a refreshing sour beer in Manchester, NH, try a drink or two for yourself at Milly’s Tavern!
