The Meat House and Redhook Brewery Revive the Summer Barbecue with Winter Grilling Festival

Local Butcher and Brewery Host Annual Polar Grill Fest January 26, 2013

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – While most grills have been tucked away and cold for a few months, The Meat House and Redhook Brewery will be teaming up with local eateries and distinguished barbecue masters to fire them up once again for the annual Polar Grill Fest this winter.

On Saturday, January 26, 2013, from 12 to 5pm, The Meat House and Redhook Brewery will be hosting the second annual Polar Grill Fest at the Redhook Brewery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. After the overwhelming turnout for the inaugural event in 2012, with a sell-out crowd of over 2,500 enthusiastic New Englanders—and a few slightly confused out-of-towners—the butcher and brewery will once again be firing up the grills and shoveling snow to make way for the event’s local vendors and bands, activities, and of course, fresh grilled meats and plenty of cold beer.


Open to all ages, with a $5 entrance fee, Polar Grill Fest will be raising funds for the local chapter of Share Our Strength, a national non-profit committed to ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. All proceeds from the event, including a percentage of all vendor sales, will benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign.

Polar Grill Fest tickets are available online, at Meat House locations in New Hampshire and Maine, and at the Redhook brewery in Portsmouth, NH. For more information about the event, visit Redhook Brewery is located at 1 Redhook Way Portsmouth, NH 03801.


Redhook Mudslinger Brown Ale Returns as Brewery’s Spring Seasonal

Redhook STILL Likes it Dirty

Woodinville, Wash. – Jan. 2, 2013 – In early 2013, Redhook will be bringing back Mudslinger Brown Ale, the brewery’s spring seasonal. Most recently called Nut Brown, this smooth, easy-drinking brown ale is making its return through April in stores and on tap nationwide.

At the risk of being accused of flip-flopping, Redhook has decided to bring back the Mudslinger name after the beer’s one-time release as Nut Brown last year. For the record, Redhook voted for the name change before he voted against it. But seriously, the whole mudslinging thing is pretty awesome – whether you’re mountain biking, talking trash to your buddies, or throwing a no-holds-barred mudwrestling contest.

“Mudslinger is Redhook’s take on the traditional brown ale style, and it’s the perfect beer for the spring season,” said Redhook senior brewer Alex Kopf. ”After winning a silver at last year’s World Beer Cup, our team is really excited to bring back Mudslinger again this year.”

Dark in color, Mudslinger is refreshingly smooth and highly sessionable. It’s layered with rich malty aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of vanilla. At 5.8% ABV and 30 IBUs, Mudslinger will retail for approximately $7.99-$8.99 per six-pack. Locations selling Mudslinger can be found using Redhook’s beer finder at
