Stark Brewery's Evolution

We Combine Our Recipes

With Our Emphasis On Brewed

Comfort And Relaxation

Our Process

Our all-natural brewing process begins by importing 1,300 pounds of malted barley. After stirring the barley by hand and singing it to sleep with our favorite lullabies, our brewers delicately blend in hops from Washington’s Yakima Valley and Europe’s agricultural hotspots with yeasts from around the world. From there, using our 15 barrel diversified metal engineering brewhouse, an old-world style fire heats the system, caramelizing the sugars to imbue batches with unique and subtle flavors.

At Stark Brewery, we not only hand-select the finest ingredients for our customers, but we also handle the canning process on-site to ensure a premier product from start to finish.

With a minimum of 18 beers on tap at all times, Stark is the place to go for Manchester drinks! Ranging from our most popular Milly’s Oatmeal Stout to a variety of IPAs, porters, and seasonal brews like Grumpy Pumpkin, there’s always a little something for everyone here at Stark Brewing Company.

Our Grains

Grain becomes malt, which then becomes beer. Depending on the brew, our imported malted barley can range from 550 to 1300 pounds per batch. Because we believe in the all-natural approach, we hand stir in our mash tun without the use of electric paddles or motors. Similarly, the removal process is also handled by hand (say that five times fast).

Thus, we stand behind our “handcrafted” process without falter. Stark beer is truly a labor of love.

Our Selection

As the local go-to Manchester brewery, Stark Brewing understands the importance of meeting our customer’s needs. That’s why when you come to Stark, you can expect to be greeted by at least 18 beers on tap. We always provide at least 8 year-round varieties like Milly’s Oatmeal Stout, Tasha’s Red Ale, and ManchVegas IPA. As well as a minimum of 10 seasonal or specialty varieties like Grumpy Pumpkin Ale, Mt. Uncanoonuc Cream Ale, or our award-winning Bo’s Scotch Ale.

However, the fun doesn’t stop there. We’re always up to something new so be sure to check in often to avoid missing out! For instance – seasonal Raspberry Lime Sour, Chocolate Pumpkin Porter, and Beermisu Stout are getting rave reviews but won’t be around long!

We even have the best drinks in Manchester for those of you looking for something other than beer – yes, we said that. Be sure to check out Stark Vodka, Rum, and Bourbon crafted in-house at our distillery.
