Do you distribute Schilling beer off-premise?

Yes, but only about 4% of our total production volume is distributed. Many of our beers are available only at our brewery’s taproom in Littleton, NH. We distribute in limited quantities (i.e. when we have enough beer) to select craft beer retailers in Vermont through Vermont Beer Shepherd and in Massachusetts via Craft Collective.  

Do you host events and can I rent function space at Schilling?

Yes, please contact for more information.  Please note that we do not host events on Fridays, Saturdays and major holiday periods, as these are busy times for us.

How big is your current brewing system?

We brew on a 7-barrel system located on-site at our brewpub.  We make under 1,000 barrels of beer per year, and the vast majority of everything we sell is poured off of our tap wall at the brewpub.

Do you offer brewery tours?

Not yet.  However, you’re always welcome to stop in and look through the window at our brewhouse (if our brewers are not hustling around).  We operate in a confined brewery space that is, unfortunately, not conducive to guests at this time.  We hope to change this in the future and are working hard to do so.

Do you have merchandise and glassware for sale?

We do at the brewery.  Eventually, we will sell this online, so keep an eye out!

Are you linked to any other Schillings?

Not at all. Schilling Beer Co. is an entirely independent brewery that is owned by The Cozzens Family, John Lenzini, and Jim Smolak.  The owners are family or very close family friends.  There is no relationship to any former athlete, brewer, or cider company by the same name.

What does Schilling's circular emblem stand for?

Our logo, comprising three united grain heads, stands for family, community, and excellence.  It is a registered trademark of Schilling Beer Co. and was designed by Monica Cozzens and Julia Brabec.

I would like to work at Schilling. How do I contact you?

Please send a brief introductory email and resume to

Do you sell bottles, or beer to-go?

Yes! Please see our Store & Tasting Room page for updates on cans and bottles available from our brand new retail outlet!

In terms of other beer to-go (i.e. besides cans and bottles), yes, we offer 64 oz. growlers and 32 oz. Crowlers from our brewpub as well as from our Store & Tasting Room.  Please remember that these beers are poured from the tap wall and should be kept cool and enjoyed promptly.

Can I bring pets into Schilling's outside seating areas?

Guests with service animals are always welcome! Please identify yourself as someone with a service animal requirement to our staff upon arrival and we will make every effort to ensure access and comfort.  However, please note that the State of New Hampshire follows a version of FDA law that prohibits personal pets in all areas licensed for food service, including outdoor areas. Thank you for your understanding, as this is a state law, not a Schilling Beer Co. policy. Please contact NH Health & Human Services if you require clarification of this law.

Can I bring outside alcohol or food into Schilling?

No outside food or drink is allowed inside our licensed premises.  This violates NH State liquor laws and jeopardizes our food and alcohol service licenses.

Do you sell kegs to private parties?

Our cans, bottles, Crowlers and growlers are ideal for off-premise consumption and are available at the brewpub and Store.  While we would love to sell kegs to the general public, our production limitations make this impossible.

Aren't Schilling Beer Co. and Resilience beers the same thing?

Schilling Beer Co. brews progressive European-inspired beers.  Resilience is simply our American ale-focused side-project.

We are looking for a charitable donation. Could Schilling donate to our cause?

We are active in our community and participate in select projects that make a difference in the lives of people–especially those living in the North Country of New Hampshire and Vermont.  We carefully consider such requests, but cannot honor each and every one.

What size are your beer glasses?

Our glassware varies in size depending on the style and alcohol content of each beer.  Most of our Belgian-style beers are served in 16 0z. goblets, although those over 8% alcohol by volume are poured to approximately the 12 oz. demarcation.  Our lagers are served in 16 oz. “pinnacle” glasses, and our various hefeweizens are served in traditional 20 oz. wheat beer glasses.  Yes, foaming is apparent on most of our beers, and is very much part of the sensory enjoyment of drinking beer.

We heard that Schilling is expanding, is this true?

Yes, it is! We have purchased the parcel immediately to the east of our brewpub and will break ground in spring/summer 2017 on our new production brewery and riverside tasting room.  We hope this new facility will be operational sometime in early 2018.

We will be brewing on a brand new, custom-fabricated, five-vessel 20-barrel brewhouse from Newlands (yeah, we’re stoked).  While the majority of our cellaring and packaging (16 oz. cans and 750ml bottles) will take place on the main floor of the new facility, the lower level will feature expanded wood-aging and wood-fermentation areas, along with a new lab space.  This expansion isn’t only about building brewing capacity; it’s about driving depth in beer diversity and fostering the creativity of an unbelievably talented group of brewers.  We are singularly committed to producing world-class beers.

Our tasting room will feature a storefront right on Mill St, with its southern end overlooking the Ammonoosuc River and connected to our current brewpub via an expanded deck.  750ml bottles and 16 oz. cans of Schilling and Resilience beers will be available from the tasting room, along with growlers, 4 oz. taster pours and other merchandise. Our current brewpub (and wood-fired kitchen) will get even more exciting, as it will showcase an even greater variety of pilot beers.  These will be offered as full pours alongside the other ‘mainstays’ of Schilling.

We couldn’t be more excited for what the future holds!
