603 Brewery was founded in 2012 by long time college friends. As home brewers, who met while studying engineering, we set out to design high quality, hand crafted beers.
Being a “Team of 3″ , we each bring a unique and different skill set to the table. Dan is an expert in water quality, who has a passion for brewing and the art of creating beer recipes and now runs the production operation. Geoff is our general manager with a strong background in sales and program management, thus keeping us focused and on track. Tamsin is our marketing coordinator and has experience in the retail industry and brand management, as well as six sigma and lean manufacturing.
Friends since college, their drive to work hard while having a great time has dominated their time together as friends and now business owners. Whether it being fishing on the water or remodeling a house, they have been side by side casting their lines. So when the idea sprouted to take one of their passions launch a brewery, the team put in every ounce of energy and determination into creating a beer and a brand that would make New Hampshire proud. Starting out as a “second job” for all three, the brewery quickly became known locally and around the state. 603’s first beer to be sold was “Winni Amber Ale” followed closely by ”White Peaks IPA”.
As demand for 603 beers increased, the vision to grow from a part time nano brewery into full time microbrewery took shape. Less than a year after launching the brewery they were out of space and needed a new home. After a 3 month search the team chose to set up shop in Londonderry New Hampshire, the geographic hub of New England.
At the Londonderry location they more than quadrupled their brewing capacity and assembled a team of passionate like minded individuals to grow and build the 603 Brewery family with. Everyday we strive to continue to be a brand that New Hampshire can be proud of.
Onsite we sell growlers, cans, 22 oz. bottles, special releases that can only be found at the brewery, and the famous “603 Beer Gear”, as well as hosting tours of our brewery from our tasting room. At the brewery, you can sample a flight of beers, watch the brewery in action, or just sit and smell the fantastic aroma of beer being born.
We look forward to having you visit our brewery, and please visit our “Brew Crew” page to meet the rest of our amazing team.
Dan, Geoff, and Tamsin
