The Executive

Here is a portrait of the Dave Yarrington, the Executive Brewer at Smuttynose Brewery in Portsmouth, NH.

After skulking around their brewery for a couple of years as a subscriber to their Big Beer Series, the good people at Smuttynose asked me to shoot their staff. So it was on. One session in March, another in May. One more to go.

If wondering about the name, “Smuttynose,” the brewery’s FAQ can explain:
Smuttynose is an unusual name for a company. What is its origin?
Our company is named for Smuttynose Island, the third largest of the nine islands that comprise the Isles of Shoals, a small, rocky archipelago that lies seven miles off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. The name appears on nautical charts going back as far as the seventeenth century, so its true origins are lost to time. Prior to the arrival of Smuttynose Brewing, the island was best known for a brutal double axe murder that occurred there in 1873.
