2020 fall bucket list

? For fall-flavored recipe inspiration, we love this Autumn Ale Pork Demi Glace recipe from Woodstock Inn and Brewery. This super-simple apple glaze recipe from Stark Brewing Company in Manchester is also bucket list worthy, featuring their award-winning, handcrafted Bourbon – available at their brewery or in select NH Liquor and Wine outlets.

? Autumn is also prime-time to visit wineries. From grape-stomping events to bonfires, wineries are full of fall hues and flavors. Some our favorites to visit include Flag Hill, Labelle, and Zorvino.

? Craving that crisp fall air? We love soaking it up by playing mini-golf at Chuckster’s or soaring through the foliage of the White Mountains with Zipline Adventures.

? Pumpkin beer is a festive way to taste the season, and our local breweries do it better than anyone else. 603 Brewery, Smuttynose, Throwback Brewery, Martha’s Exchange, and Rockingham Brewery are just some of our go(urd)-to brews.

Finally, the season isn’t complete without comforting seasonal meals from our favorite restaurants. For a cozy night out, bring a blanket to a restaurant’s outdoor patio area! Or, pick up takeout and bring to a local park for the perfect autumn afternoon. In Nashua, it’s easy to grab something on Main Street and drive right up the street to beautiful Greeley Park. Want waterfront views? Portsmouth’s Prescott Park offers ocean views and close proximity to dozens of restaurants.
