The Conner family has continued a time honored tradition that dates back to the Civil War. From the landmark Conner Bottling Works, in Newfields, New Hampshire, the Conner Family has for the past five generations been producing and bottling "Squamscot Old Fashioned Beverages". Known more commonly today as a tonic or soda, the many flavors of Squamscot Beverages has been quenching the thirst of New Englander's for more than one hundred and forty one years.
Established in 1863 by the late William H. Conner, the bottling works started producing tonic that was simply called "Connermade". This tonic, which was really a "pop" beer or more commonly known as a spruce beer at the time, was packaged in returnable glass bottles with porcelain and wire stoppers. William Conner grew the business until his death in 1911. Only to be succeded by his son Alfred Conner Sr., who ran the business from 1911-1948, followed by Alfred Conner Jr. who was raised around the bottling plant, which is located on the family farm. A two-story, gray and white building constructed in the 1800's that was once a barn and is located directly behind the family home.
