Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Painted Red Rooster

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly, usually of weather vanes in the Nutfield, New Hampshire area, but sometimes they can be from anywhere. Occasionally they are elsewhere in New England, or very historical weather vanes from far away. Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes, too!  Today's weather vane was photographed in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weather vane #158? Scroll down to the bottom to see the answer!

Today's weather vane was photographed at the Clydesdale Hamlet at the Anhueser Busch Brewery in Merrimack, New Hampshire.  This lovely location is full of lovely gardens, fun German architecture, and barns for the famous Clydesdale hitch seen in beer commercials on television.  If you are lucky, you may even see baby draft horses.  Most of the time some of the adult horses are here, even if the full hitch is on the road for parades and advertising shoots.

There are no weather vanes on the main horse barns, but this little weather vane was spotted in the field on an outbuilding.  It looks like painted wood, but it was hard to tell at a distance.

You can visit the Budweiser Brewery in Merrimack and see the Clydesdales, take a brewery tour, visit the gardens and the gift shop.  Or just stop by to do only one of these choices.  And all are free to the public.

  1. As you know, your weathervane series is one of my favorites. While visiting the Northeast for 10 days I've noticed them everywhere from New York to Boston. Thanks for reminding me to look up.

    1. I'm sorry to have missed you while you were in New England. I wish we could have met up at NEHGS!
