Nestled in the shadow of New Hampshire’s majestic White Mountains, Littleton is the cultural, economic and recreational hub of the North Country. Rated by many travel publications as one of the top ten best small towns in America, this picturesque New England gem offers something for everyone: fine dining and art galleries, unique shops, historic buildings, a covered bridge in the middle of town spanning a trout stream (right next to Schilling Beer Co.), and a vast array of outdoor activities for all seasons and skill levels.
Incorporated in 1784, Littleton soon became a commercial and cultural center for New Hampshire’s North Country. Perched on the banks of the Ammonoosuc and Connecticut rivers, Littleton developed first as a mill town, manufacturing a vast array of goods. Today, with a population around 6,000, it continues to serve as the North Country’s cultural and economic core, offering a bustling, award-winning Main Street, and the progressive feel of a “mountain town”. Fly-fishing, skiing nearby peaks, and trekking through some of the most serious backcountry on the East Coast merges seamlessly with Littleton’s burgeoning arts and culture scene.
The town’s location in the scenic White Mountains and its mix of small-town charm and modern convenience has earned Littleton numerous accolades, including the first New Hampshire Profile Community Award for conveying the state’s spirit of independence and being named a “Top Ten Dream Town” by Outside magazine. In 2014 Fodor’s Travel named Littleton as one of America’s “Best Main Streets”.
Schilling Beer Co. is proud to call Littleton home and reflects this sentiment on its labels and most packaging.
