Twin Barns Brewing Co. - Meredith
The idea for Twin Barns Brewing was fermented by Dave Picarillo and Bruce Walton, a couple of traveling consultants by day who dreamed of brewing at night. For years they talked about pouring their home brewing hobbies and general love of all things beer into delicious craft brews they could share with the public.
Over decades (and many, many beers), business plans were drafted and locations were scouted but life always seemed to shelve their brewpub hopes. Until 2017, during a brewery tour in NH, when their passion to open a spot of their own was re-ignited. Two months later, in nearby Meredith, NH, they found a barn built in 1850, that would be the perfect place to make their dream a reality. After further inspection, one barn was actually two joined together and that’s how Twin Barns Brewing was finally founded in 2018.
Come visit our brewpub. It’s just a short hop from beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee and fine, craft beer brewed with choice ingredients and a big dash of passion is always on tap!
