Tim Roettiger, owner/brewer of Belgian Mare Brewery, named his brewery after the Belgian mare, Aggie, that can be seen outside his home in East 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 is a very traditional bottle-conditioned beer, 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.”
Living on a historical farm in Cheshire county of southwest NH, Tim uses a wood fired oven to cook his brews “the old fashion way.” He has been perfecting his recipes for almost a decade in preparation to launching his 3-barrel brewery.
