About

Cask & Vine

There are couches to your right, an elegant bar further down with personalized mugs and glasses hanging.  Wine barrel tables line the adjacent wall with local paintings hanging purposefully above them.  Judy Garland plays softly over the murmur of conversation and laughter.  That's when you realize you're not in Kansas anymore. 

What Is Cask and Vine?

The perfect place to start, finish or spend your evening.  From the wine/beer aficionado to the new-comer, we want to help pick out a wine or beer you will want to share with everyone you know.  We will have featured Wine/Beer Flights each month, and tried-and-true favorites by the glass or the bottle - paired with fruits, cheeses, chocolates, small sandwiches and wraps.  We will have a strong focus on local breweries, wineries and foods from local farms.

Cask and Vine will be a beer and wine lounge in Derry NH.

Where We Started

Since taking ownership of The Drinkery, a small craft beer and wine cellar in Londonderry NH, we have made long-term relationships with many who visit our little shop.  Everyone has a different story, favorite beer or wine and love to share them... including us!  It's not just about a business, it's about an experience at The Drinkery.

We recently celebrated our One-Year Anniversary at The Drinkery, and it was an event unlike anything we've ever witnessed in a "beer and wine store".  All our regular visitors and even newcomers gathered together to taste some amazing beer, share in the experience and celebrate a place that has become much more than a place to buy good beer and wine.

We want to take this passion a step further and give our visitors a place to sit and enjoy these same craft beers and specialty wines with us and one another.  With NH law being as it is, we cannot operate an on-premise (consumption) and off-premise license in the same location... That said, we were determined to find a way to take the beauty and charm of this little beer and wine cellar and create a place where craft beer drinkers and wine drinkers alike could sit and enjoy a glass of something outstanding.

Welcome to Cask & Vine.

Cask & Vine Lounge: Couches and comforts
Cask & Vine Lounge: Couches and comforts

Cask and Vine will offer beer and wine lovers a place to sit in a casual atmosphere and enjoy a glass of their favorite craft beer or small production wine without the noise and atmosphere of your average sports bar or pub scene.  Small cheeses, chocolates, fruits, wraps, sandwiches and the like can be paired with your beverage of choice.  It's about an experience.  A nice place to be.

Atmosphere and Ambience
Atmosphere and Ambience

In addition to atmosphere, a large part of what Cask and Vine will offer is knowledge and approach.  Our wine and beer list has been hand-selected by us, and they are wines we share with our own friends and family on a regular basis and even carry at The Drinkery.  It's important to us that we know what we have, and share with you things we believe are something truly special.  

We've imagined a place that supports local breweries such as White Birch Brewing and Throwback Brewery by keeping their flagship beers on draft, and a selection of unique, bottled well-crafted beers.  Our wine list will rotate some great small production wineries such as Vinum Cellars and Hobo Wines.  Our grand-opening will feature a special small batch Tripel created by White Birch Brewing, aged in either a Vinum or Hobo wine barrel.  Each visit to Cask & Vine will be a new experience, with something new and exciting to taste as we change our featured wine and beer flight menu on a regular basis.

What Is The Money For?

Renovations.  We have found a diamond in the rough, and we have paired down our costs by doing a lot of the work ourselves and hiring local contractors.  Legal and licensing fees aren't cheap either.

We are very excited to say many of the re-purposed materials we are using are coming from the very breweries and wineries that we will have on tap and in the bottle!

When Do You Anticipate Opening?

We plan to have renovations completed by September to allow all inspections and permits to be issues by October.

Where Are You Getting Your Barrels?

We have been extremely fortunate to meet some extraordinary people in our time at The Drinkery, including some of our winemakers. Both Vinum Cellars and Hobo Wines have been gracious enough to provide us with beautiful barrels from some of their recent small production wines.

Employment Opportunities

One thing we are REALLY excited about: hiring help.  We have received a number of phone calls from folks looking for employment at our retail store.  Unfortunately, The Drinkery doesn't really need more than two of us at the moment to operate.  The Cask and Vine will allow us to give a call to a few of these folks and put them to work in the best job in the world!
