We visited Redhook in Woodinville when we were living out in Seattle. Upon moving to NH, we were looking forward to visiting the eastern sister to do a little 'mini-comparison.' It's amazing how similar the two facilities look and feel. The building is attached to the main brewery, and tours are given quite often for $1, which scores you a tasting glass and a sample of what's on-tap during the tour. Definitely fun. The beers are decent, and there is enough of a variety that there should be something for any beer drinker to enjoy. They do have limited releases from time to time that are usually pretty unique and tasty. The staff is usually pretty good, with the occasional outlier that you will get any place you go frequently enough. They are usually pretty knowledgable about beer, which is always a good thing at a brewery. Decent menu, with a range from vegetarean, burgers, seafood, salads, etc., and everything is priced fair. Nifty little gift shop, where you can find lots of interesting Redhook garb. There is a Redhook mug club, but our server informed us that there was currently a 2-year waiting list for it, so I really didn't retain many of the details about it. They also host quite a few events there, with a very good-sized outdoor pavillion available. They do outdoor movie nights in the summer months, and host quite a few concerts. I believe they also host the NH Brewers Festival each year. All in all, a decent place to visit while in Portsmouth. I still give the overall nod to the original in Washington, but this gives East Coasters a chance to enjoy the same atmosphere in the comforting confines of home.
