Our beer dinner on September 29, focused on pairing local foods with our our home town Henniker Brewing Company, embarks Colby Hill Inn on a global culinary exploration. Join us on a Wines of the World Tour without leaving Southern New Hampshire….until maybe we do plan a trip.

Each Thursday dinner party (held on the 3rd Thursday of the month) will focus on one wine region of the world. Top-picked wines will be paired with five regional-influenced tasting courses prepared by Chef Barnes. As always, the menu will also be local farm-to-table driven. From 6:15-6:45 p.m. there is a Welcome Hour aperitif or sparkling wine and then we sit for dinner.  This will be a 6-course meal with the courses presented in tasting sizes.

Including alcohol, the cost of dinner is $75 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. Rooms will be discounted by 15% for Tour guests on the night of each tour. You’ll receive another 5% room discount on your second stay-over/Wine Dinner, on your third another 5% and so forth!


Each month, we hope to include a wine and/or food expert in addition to Chef Barnes
