Brewery Name: Aigean Ales
Type of Brewery: Retail Brewery
Location: 250 Commercial St Unit #2001, Manchester, NH.
Facebook: Aigean Ales
Background: Aigean Ales has been open since early 2017, but, despite the fact that the taproom is just ten minutes down the road from my place of employment, I didn’t hear about them until October. In a way, this fits the Aigean Ales motif: they’ve cultivated a sort of speakeasy vibe for themselves, and they relish being one of the city’s hidden gems. For the owners of the brewery, this isn’t a full-time job: it’s just something they love doing. They aren’t trying to get rich brewing beer, they’re more interested in creating a great space where beer lovers can enjoy the creative concoctions they’ve cooked up.
Growlers: Yes, there are growlers available for purchase in the taproom. Due to New Hampshire’s growler laws, they can only fill their own glassware, so if you’re coming from out of state you should be aware of that.
The Beers: Aigean Ales has six tap lines, so you can usually count on a pretty good variety of beers to try. When I stopped in, they had a couple of sours, a stout, a table beer, an IPA, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve talked about it before on the blog, but there’s nothing better than when a brewery isn’t afraid to branch out into a bunch of different styles. Sure, I like a good IPA from a brewery that specializes in that style, but I also like to see what a brewery is really capable of and taste a bunch of different beers.
Dogs: Unsure. The owners have an adorable yogurt-loving pup who wanders around inside the taproom, so you might be alright as long as your dog is well behaved. On the other hand, the brewery is located inside one of Manchester’s old mill buildings in a sort of mall-like area, so dogs might be a no-go. I’d say use your judgment.
Price ($ to $$$$$): $$. Pretty much standard prices for tasters and growlers, no surprises here.
Food: No food. The brewery’s entire public space amounts to a bartop and a couple of chairs against the wall, so this isn’t a place where you’re going to settle in with beer and food. It doesn’t sound like they have any immediate plans to expand, but you never know!
Final Thoughts: I love a place that feels like a secret. A place that makes me feel like I’ve stumbled upon something that not many people know about. The word is starting to get out about Aigean Ales, but the taproom has stayed true to the vision of its owners. Not only does Aigean Ales offer great beer, but they also offer great conversation, and a real sense of enthusiasm for what they do. There aren’t too many breweries these days where you can just sidle up to the bar and learn about the brewery’s entire backstory straight from the owners themselves, so treasure places like Aigean Ales when you find them!

Having a cold drink after a day's work is so satisfying. Of course, I work as an eventorganizer. An event organizer does a lot of walking and running, it means that I use my body a lot. Having a cold drink after all the physical activities I have done just relieves of me of so much stress. However, I would not recommend a daily drink of beer to anyone. It may be satisfying, but in the long run it can cause serious damage.

There is nothing better than stove popped popcorn. It has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. I learned how to pop popcorn on the stove at the knee of my father, who learned from his father, and so forth and so on. Okay, that’s not true, while my dad did teach me, I have no idea where he learned How to Make Popcorn on the Stove. All I know is that stove popped popcorn is the best.
