Story behind Rockingham Brewing Company

Rob & Ali Leleszi first connected over a rousing game of beer pong in New York City in 2007. Early on, it was clear that they would go on to do great things together, but it took six years to figure out what those things were. During that time, Rob cultivated his passion & skill for homebrewing and received an Associates Degree in Brewing Science from the Siebel Institute. He then started an invaluable internship at Port Jeff Brewing Company in Long Island. It was a long commute from Brooklyn, and even longer work hours, but Rob’s love for brewing only grew. At the same time, Ali, who had always dreamed of owning her own business, had become a self-professed beer snob and was reading up on the business side of brewing.

It was then they decided to open up their own brewery and started scouting the perfect locale for their 10 barrel brew system. They stopped when they found the blossoming town of Derry, NH, in Ali’s home state. Rockingham Brewing opened its doors in February of 2015. About one month after opening, Rob and Ali hired their first full time employee, Remy, a Great Pyrenees mix rescue. Since then, the team has grown into 10 hard-working & fun-loving individuals, who focus on brewing & sharing a well-rounded portfolio of beers, to ensure there is always an option for everyone to enjoy. They are all thrilled to be part of the growing local beer community in Rockingham County, NH.

This will be their third year offering free tastings and sales of their great beers at the Candia Farmers Market.
