Nonesuch River Brewing was intentionally designed with events in mind. Resting in a beautiful, classic New England post and beam framed two-story structure, we have a semi-private upstairs mezzanine space that can be used for cocktail parties, business functions, formal sit-down dinners, and mid-size social gatherings. In the summer months, the upstairs space can be conjoined with our outdoor deck for a beautiful indoor/outdoor event experience.

Reversing Burnout.  How to Immediately Engage Top Talent and Grow!  A Blueprint for Professionals and Business Owners.

Achieving success as a professional and a business owner requires a sustained commitment and dedication to “mastering our craft.”  Despite the tremendous value and benefits offered, success today can leave many of us feeling burned-out, disengaged, and considering a pivot.  Achieving success as an organization requires the ability to attract, retain, and grow top talent. To remain successful, organizations must take on burnout and disengagement and provide the type of environment and opportunities that top employees want.    Success and a full life are possible, and Reversing Burnout offers a specific blueprint for professionals and business owners to reverse burnout, immediately engage top talent, and grow.
