Notes:
Throwback Brewery was founded in early 2010 by Annette Lee who is the Head Brewer and GM, alongside Nicole Carrier. Prior to starting Throwback Brewery she was an intern at Smuttynose.

Throwback is considered a nano-sized brewery. They only produce three barrels (or 93 gallons) each time they brew. The beer is hand bottled and non filtered.

This place is worth the visit. A quick exit off Route 1 in North Hampton, New Hampshire and located in a classic New England farm. Indoor and outdoor dining. Plenty of parking. They will have 10 or more beers on tap that rotate wit the seasons. a few are experimental. They use mostly locally grown ingredients for their beer. There is a bar and several tables inside and outside. You can buy a flight of four, pints, and of course take home a can or a growler. This place has convenient hours of operation.

Stopped in here for lunch today and finally ate here. So the tasting room is in an old barn with some beer garden type seating out back. Maybe 30 seats at the bar off to the left of the space with probably a dozen or so long tables that seat 6 to 8 people. Decent menu with fresh farm to table ingredients. My burger was really good, the beans not so much. They had a dozen beers on tap, the 4 I had were quite good. Service was quick, my lunch was a little pricey at 23 dollars. Nice space, I would go back again.

Never visited their old location, but they are now permanently located in an old farmhouse like building. Chickens roam freely on the outside and on the inside you get marvel at the original timber framing that hasn't been corrupted too much with gypsum.

I usually sit at the bar so service is quite prompt and friendly. You also order at the bar (for drink and food) and seat yourself among the tables otherwise. When it's busy, it could be confusing for those who haven't been there before.

Food is high quality, and from what I can tell, mostly locally sourced. I usually go with the poutine since it's a great value for what you get, but I haven't had a bad choice yet. Expect a higher class menu than typical of a standard brewpub so adjust pricing and options accordingly.

They only serve their own beer but they usually have so many variations on tap that you'd be hard pressed not to find something you like. They have so many styles available it's quite impressive.

They provide four different types of growlers. They have glass and steel growlers available in 32oz and 64oz, I never leave the place without getting mine filled.

I had a chance to finally visit the new location at 7 Hobbs Road, North Hampton, NH 03862 (Hobbs Farm). Job well done on renovating the barn into a brew pub. Atmosphere is relaxed and the food is fantastic and the beers are as described. I highly recommend you visit this brew pub if you are in the area.

service is fine if you're not uptight, casual 'come to the bar and order or maybe flag one of us down' pay at the bar, haven't worked out the kinks of casual/busy at the same time, food is very good and uses local meat, cheese, veggies as much as possible, pretty kid friendly without not being adult friendly, big enough space to hang around in and game-playing/taking your time encouraged. they have some games, we were surrounded by people having a good time on a sunday afternoon, groups of 2somethings, a couple families with kids playing games at their tables, we got the korean wings, not fully authentic but very good, burger with bacon is great, kale/cous cous salad is good, salami fruit and shaved parmesan is maybe a bit sparing but of good quality, baked beans are real, a little short on kick, I have in-laws in the area and will visit this place more often than i will visit them

First time at the new location at Towle Farm. If you are in the area and like good beer and food you need to visit. Five of their own brews on tap along with four guest selections and a local hard cider. My wife can't drink beer, and they do have a red, white, and rosé house wine by the glass. We went on a beautiful day and sat at one of the outside tables on a field flanked by trees near a chicken coup! The staff is friendly and make you feel welcome. This is a fun place. Lots of growlers being filled. Owners Annette and Nicole and staff have done a remarkable job moving and restoring and expanding. Nice touch hiring the chef d'cuisine from the Black Trumpet in Portsmouth, NH. We will be back soon with friends.

Great beers, good selection and excellent service. Tap room was nice and not overly noisy. Bartender took a moment to explain each of the beers in a flight that I ordered and seemed really enthused.

Love the Throwback ladies!! Nichole and Annette are the best. Cannot wait until Hobbs Farm is up and running. These ladies put out some real fine beers, sourcing ingredients locally and doing some fun things.

Entered as a tour was leaving, so I got to talk with Nicole and Anita. Very personable and enthusiastic about what they are doing. Visiting a small brewery taproom is a great experienc, and Throwback is no exception.
