Laconia Ale Works

We are not just building and opening a brewery in Sparta. We plan on being an intricate part of the development of this beautiful mountain town and we’re going to brew what we believe best represents it. Even if that means we end up tossing whole Christmas trees and pumpkins in! (We’re 100% serious). Cheers to an awesome journey!
