Schilling Beer Co. is a modern European-inspired small-batch brewery centered on family, community, and excellence. Founded in 2013 by the Cozzens family and their long-time friend, John Lenzini – Michigan natives who moved to the North Country over 15 years ago – the Schilling name honors the Cozzens’ beloved late grandfather, Dr. R.J. Schilling. It also reflects the continental European experiences and inspirations foundational to the design of our beers and brewery.
Nestled in the shadow of New Hampshire’s majestic White Mountains, Littleton is the cultural and recreational hub of the North Country. Annually rated as one of the the best small towns in America with a bustling Main Street, this gem of 6,000 residents offers something for everyone: art galleries; funky and unique shops; an emerging River District music scene centered on The Loading Dock; a community mountain biking trail network called PRKR Mountain five quick minutes from the brewery; and the Ammonoosuc River, right behind our brewery, complete with a covered bridge and three species of trout. Throw in four crisp seasons and hiking and skiing minutes from the brewery, and you’ll see upon visiting why we are so proud to live and brew here!
Schilling Beer Co. is anchored in an unwavering commitment to excellence—a commitment that is annually recognized internationally by our industry colleagues, loyal customers and guests. We expect this level of performance from ourselves. While grateful for the many awards we’ve won, at the end of the day, the most meaningful metric of success is the smiles worn by our self-critical production team when the liquid meets their standard. Being “world-class” is a fleeting aspiration that keeps us continually striving for more. We hope you taste this commitment in our beers.
