Tim Roettiger, owner/brewer/beer taster

Tim Roettiger, owner and brewer at Belgian Mare Brewery named his brewery after the Belgian mare, Aggie, that can be seen outside his home in Alstead, New Hampshire.

The basis for the design of Roettiger’s brewery is a gravity-fed process that goes back to Medieval tower breweries.

Roettiger said, “Belgian Mare Brewery beers are very traditional bottle-conditioned ales, which is new to most people. Bottle conditioning involves less control and more art. The last fermentation happens inside the bottle, which provides carbonation and the last bit of flavor.”
