2014 Great International
Beer Festival
Draken Robust Porter

A big, malty and dark porter, Draken exudes a roasty aroma from its tan head. You’ll taste a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness. Draken has subtle flavors of raisins and dark fruits and a touch of hop bitterness to balance the flavor on the palate.

Paradigm Won TWO Bronze Medals Out West!

We entered some of our beers at the LA International Beer Festival and the San Diego International Beer Festival. Paradigm was awarded a bronze medal at each competition! This is the third and fourth competition that we have entered Paradigm into and it now has one gold and three bronze medals! Draken received and honorable mention at the LA International Beer Festival. Our beers traveled 3,000 miles to the West Coast and we are very proud!

NH Craft Beer that pushes the limits of traditional styles

At Kelsen Brewing, we brew beer that we like to drink and that craft beer enthusiasts are searching for.  If you don’t like full-flavored beers or beers with hop aroma that socks you in the nostrils, you probably won’t appreciate what we are brewing.  If you appreciate complex malt profiles and unique combinations of hop flavors and aromas, you might want to pick up a bottle of Kelsen and try us out.
