Current owner, Tom Mills, has owned and operated The Flying Goose since its start in 1993. In 1996, he gave what was known originally as The Four Corners Grille a unique identity by creating a micro-brewery. Mills put his heart and soul into rebuilding what is now The Flying Goose Brew Pub & Grille.
REDUCING THE CARBON FOOTPRINT
In 2011, they became the 1st Solar Powered Brewery in NH using a Solar Hot Water System and a breathtaking Photovoltaic Array. The carbon footprint has diminished significantly since they have added these tremendous systems. Besides the many awards that their Brews have earned, they taste THAT much better knowing they were made using a little natural energy from the sun!
The oil burning furnace was replaced with a wood pellet furnace that provides heat for the entire building. You might notice the large silver silo out back that holds the pellets.
GOING EVEN MORE GREEN
In 2014, Septic preservation services was contacted to help the Brewery with managing its wastewater. The existing onsite system was inadequate for the volume and type of wastewater being produced by the brewery. They were looking for a way to treat the wastewater in a way that continued the green philosophy the brewery had been committed to. They already had taken the steps to provide the spent grain to local farmers for feed as well as using some in-house for special treats. The yeast and other natural byproducts from brewing have been separated out and now go to other local farms to be used for soil amendments. Septic Preservation Services provided the design, installation, set-up and service of a new completely separate wastewater system for just the brewery. The system is designed to treat the wastewater organically with a special bacteria that consumes and transforms the wastewater to clean water to be dispersed back to the earth.
