Dover brewery raises a glass to community
By Michael McCord

The 7th Settlement brewery offers many choices of handcrafted beer and food in Dover, but most of it all it offers a lesson in top-to-bottom sustainability. 

Founded by David Boynton and Josh Henry, 7th Settlement opened its doors in November 2013. The journey was almost a full decade in the making as the former home brew devotees wanted to combine the best of microbrew quality with a local farm-to-table focus. One of those goals was to revive the importance of local pubs to their community (the company name pays homage to Dover’s status as the country’s seventh-oldest continuous settlement and oldest in New Hampshire).

“A pub is a public house and community gathering place,” said Boynton, who handles financial strategy and the front of the house side of the business, while Henry is the brew master. “The bigger story is the support we have from people who love having a community pub that connects a great sense of place and history.”

It also explains the company motto: “don’t buy beer from strangers.” Read more from
