A Brew with a View 2016

2016 was a great year for the Brewfest at Steele Hill. As the rain descended over Steele Hill Resorts, organizers feared the worst. Attendees, however, had another idea. What better activity than flock to the local brewfest to shake off the bad weather? People came in masses and attendance almost doubled over the first year’s crowd. As the large event tent filled with warm bodies and the bodies filled with delicious microbrews a sense of comradery and purpose descended over the crowd. People were set to enjoy themselves rain or shine and the closer quarters actually made for a friendlier more engaging crowd. Who would have thought beer fans were so resilient and awesome to hang out with.

A Brew with a View 2015

2015 marked the launch of our now annual “A Brew with a View” Brewfest at Steele Hill Resorts. With blue bird skies and 80 degree weather, attendees were treated to the perfect day for beer tasting in the Lakes Region. Those initial trailblazers will (hopefully) remember looking down over Lake Winnisquam towards the Belknap Mountain Range and thinking this beer is delicious and that view is amazing.

Needless to say, the local beer aficionados were elated and attendees that traveled in for the event were also impressed. With the success of the inaugural festival, a follow up was a forgone conclusion. The ultimate goal was to make Steele Hill’s brewfest one of the best boutique tasting events in the state.
