JT Thompson, Smuttynose's publicity director, said the beer might be part of a trend, but it is a good trend.

"I personally cut my teeth on drinking beer in the UK, and love drinking low-alcohol beer," he said. "I like drinking beer more than tasting beer, having a couple of pints."
When I mentioned it seemed like the Big Beers were offered according to the whim of the brewers, Thompson laughed. "It is more planned than that, but it might seem that way," he said.
He said that because of capacity limitations at the brewery in Portsmouth, Smuttynose could release only about eight beers in the Big Beer series each year, which usually includes the Baltic Porter and Imperial Stout because they are very popular. The series has existed since 1998, and resulted in about 15 beers.
Thompson said the new brewery will be bigger and better in every way from the Portsmouth operation, and I think it might mean more of the Big Beers.

"This outcome accentuates the importance of self-advocacy and calm, clear communication," said J.T. Thompson, a spokesman for Smuttynose Brewing of Hampton.

Thompson said advocacy in Washington by New Hampshire's U.S. Senators, Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen, helped change the course of bureaucratic regulation.
Thompson said each of the 1,000 batches of beer Smuttynose brewed last year used 2,500 to 3,000 pounds of dry grain.
"At the very least, we'd have to find a place to put all that," Thompson said.
"We'd either need (a huge) compost pile or to make arrangements to dump hundreds of thousands, if not millions of pounds of spent grain, into landfills," Thompson said. "It's a waste."
"I was at a craft brewers conference in Denver, and this was a big topic of conversation," Thompson said.

JT Thompson, Minister of Propaganda

JT is a very proud native of North Carolina. How he ended up in frosty New Hampshire is a tale best saved for a few pints. JT came to Smutty from our sister brewpub, the Portsmouth Brewery, after having worked previously at two breweries in Pennsylvania, in addition to a stint as a graduate student in Library Science. He is an American Brewers' Guild graduate. After four and an half years of production brewing at Smuttynose, JT became Smuttynose's first Minister of Propaganda. This is his first desk job since 2002. His responsibilities include, writing our newsletter, managing our Facebook/Twitter feed, creating content for Smuttynose TV and Portsmouth Brewery TV, among other communicative tasks.
JT has many interests but none greater than UNC basketball. He also is an avid music listener, novice home repairer, infrequent cook of Southern cuisine, and sometimes visitor to art museums. JT has been volunteering for NERAX (New England Real Ale Exposition) since 2007. When he's not having a beer, you can find JT with tea or bourbon; independently of each other of course. He also loves a good dirty joke.

"We decided we wanted to make a session because it's the kind of beer we all wanted to drink," says J.T. Thompson, Smuttynose's Minister of Propaganda.
