Four great breweries that are (mostly) within walking distance of one another in Downtown Nashua, along with two, Spyglass & White Birch, just down the way.

Nashua, The Gate City, is a pretty cool small city 30 miles to the South of New Hampshire's capital, Concord. Beyond the breweries below, Nashua has a slew of small bars & pubs, including The Flight Center, a chill craft beer haunt that's ideal for a happy hour stop.
You're here for the breweries though, so let's check them out.
14 Court St, Nashua, NH 03060
Liquid Therapy is a rock solid name for a brewery. And, a historic Fire Station is an awesome place for a brewery. Open Wednesday through Sunday, Liquid Therapy hosts a handful of weekly live events, pours 15 draft beers on tap, and is well stocked with grub, featuring a variety of pizzas, sandwiches and nacho plates for your consumption.
185 Main St, Nashua, NH 03060
What was most notable about Martha's Exchange was that a quarter of the brewpub's space was a dedicated candy shoppe. Marth's had a great street-level outdoor patio (perhaps COVID-driven) which is perfect if you're into people watching downtown.
It featured a full-service food menu (it's a restaurant first and foremost), plenty of beers on tap, and, a happy hour that boats a Buy One Get One for a Penny. You must have to order the same beer, because that didn't apply to our visit. That said, the beers were tasty and crisp and paired well with the plate of fried pickles we ordered to snack on.
For those who like variety, not only in style, but also in alcohol content, Martha's Exchange delivers a beer menu that covers a wide enough range to satisfy everyone.
25 E Otterson St, Nashua, NH 03060
Live music, dog friendly, and popcorn ... and we're sold.
Millyard Brewery welcomes you to enjoy a pint or three every Wednesday through Sunday at their Nashua taproom. Their pub food is made up of sandwiches and New Zealand-inspired pies. Their draft menu is made up of Irish Reds, IPAs, Porters and Hefeweizens. They are approximately a half mile walk outside of Downtown Nashua.
124 Main St, Nashua, NH 03060
An outstanding brewery with a super comfortable atmosphere. The service was top notch, the beers were delightful, and the Heath Bar dessert was spectacular. Odd Fellows trotted out a range of craft beer that spanned across styles and ABV range. If you're into sampling beers, they offer 4 pre-arranged flights that pair well with each other. As for food, we highly recommend the jalapeno bacon cheese dip.
We highly recommend that you visit Odd Fellows if you're cruising up I-93 on your way to the Lakes Region.
2 Townsend W STE 8, Nashua, NH 03063
Small batch beers on tap with cans to go. Small plates to enjoy in the taproom. Branded Belgian & Teku Glasses for sale. Same with Spyglass Brewing Apparel. Low key, cool place to drink.
Go visit Spyglass.
57 Factory St, Nashua, NH 03060
The newest kid on the block, TaleSpinner just opened in the Winter of 2022. Adjoined to an upscale restaurant, TaleSpinner serves a beer named Crispus Attucks. No joke.
Do not foresake this brewery.
460 Amherst St, Nashua, NH 03063
Heavy on the Berliner Weisse is Nashua's White Birch Brewing. Three of their core, signature beers are in that style. Visit the taproom often enough and you can try their whole lineup of Berliner Weisse. We're even told that they brewed a Pineapple Coconut Berliner ... just in case you haven't seen 1988's Cocktail in awhile.
White Birch's taproom, which holds 84 people, is available for private rental, so feel free to host your Rehearsal Dinner or Wedding Shower at the brewery. To be fair, they even suggest Murder Mystery parties.
31 Columbia Cir, Merrimack, NH 03054
Able Ebenezer is a Veteran-owned brewery that is just North of Nashua. The vibe is right, the beers are cold, and it's a great place to catch a Sunday afternoon NFL game, so what more do we need to say about it?
122 Western Ave, Lowell, MA 01851
Across the New Hampshire border is Lowell's Navigation Brewing Company. You can get yourself a fresh pour in a pint glass or a fill of your 32oz or 64oz growler at Navigation's taproom Thursday through Sunday.
Also dog friendly, Navigation calls in food trucks on the weekends to feed the fine beer thirsty folks of Lowell. Try out their "Uncharted Series" beers to get a real taste for their brewing style. We'd recommend the Give-Way Vessel.
