Video: Iron Heart’s mobile canning operation at Concord Craft Brewing Co.

It’s not every day that you’re invited to a brewery at 9 in the morning, so when that opportunity presented itself to us last week, of course we had to take advantage. Perhaps surprisingly, we weren’t there to drink this time – and by there, we mean Concord Craft Brewing Co. No, we stopped by the Storrs Street brewery because we wanted to check out the mobile canning operation run by Iron Heart Canning live and in person. Iron Heart...

It’s quite the process to make a batch of beer

Since opening the doors in April of last year, Lithermans Limited has seen its fair share of milestones. They have graduated from only being able to serve flights – small tasters of their beers – to offering up full pints of their tasty creations. They now serve food and recently expanded their tap room. And just last week, Lithermans brewed a double batch for the first time, using their brand new seven barrel fermenter. The fermenter...

We all know about the plethora of options for places to grab a beer around here – you can get out of work and stop by the Barley House, Penuche’s, Dos Amigos, The Red Blazer, The Draft, etc. – but what about good places to stock up for the weekend?

We like having choices when it comes to beer

For the longest time, one of the biggest knocks on Concord was that there were not any local breweries to frequent. Well, that has greatly changed all within the last two years thanks to the addition of not one, but two local spots that make some pretty tasty beers. Lithermans Limited opened its doors at 126 Hall St. Unit B in April of 2016, while and Concord Craft Brewing Co. became a new addition to the downtown scene at 117 Storrs...

Food Snob: Bao tacos and a glass of Merlot at Whiskey & Wine

It kind of snuck up on us, but downtown Concord now has a brand new bar and restaurant called Whiskey & Wine, and it’s in a prime location right as you turn onto North Main Street from Center Street/Loudon Road. On the ground floor of the recently renovated Remi’s Block, Whiskey & Wine opened quietly a couple weeks ago, so we had to get down there to check it out. As its name implies, the place is big on both whiskey and wine...

This Instagram user shared a nice shot of the view from her office

We were poking around Instagram last week when we came upon this stunning shot showing the First Church of Christ, Scientist on School Street from a high vantage point.

With a view like that, it’s hard to complain about going to work every day. At the Insider pod, we have to stand up just to look out the...
