Brewery Spotlight

Resilience Brewing

Resilience Brewing is Schilling Beer Co.’s American ale project. It was started in 2017 in an attempt to craft hoppy ales, as well as some other delicious beverages. Housed in Littleton, New Hampshire, Resilience has been thus named to mark the struggles that Schilling Beer Co. had to endure to successfully launch this project. To get a taste of Resilience beers, you can either come down to the Schilling Beer Co. taproom or brewpub. You might even chance upon 16oz cans and kegs of the same at limited distributor outlets across New Hampshire, but we recommend the hills as the perfect backdrop to enjoy your Resilience brews against.

Resilience Brewing deals with an entire range of ales. from barrel-aged dark ales to hoppy double dry-hopped IPAs. You might even be able to get your hands on an elusive New World ale if you’re lucky. Distribution is limited to the Rhode Island and Massachusetts area as of now. You can avail beer to-go in cans, casks, and small and large format kegs.

Schilling Beer Co. Brewery & Taproom

Schilling Beer Co. is largely a family-run, community-focused brewing enterprise. Settled on the banks of the Ammonoosuc River, it provides visiting customers with an environment to match its magical craft brews. The brewing effort provides a tasting room and store, as well as a brewpub where you can lounge around with your Resilience beer. For those who’d like to take in their surroundings, outdoor seating is made available in the form of a beer garden and a riverfront deck seating. 

If you visit during the warmer months, you can avail your bites from a food truck parked near the riverfront deck. During colder months, Schilling Beer Co. provides table service in a weatherproof deck. 

You will not go hungry when you come down to Schilling Beer Co. for a taste of Resilience beer.

You can also order from their local cheese and meat plates and pair them with your favorite Resilience brew.
