Came here with a few friends for the tour. The tour lasts around 40-50 minutes and it costs $1, you get a tasting glass to keep and we got to sample 5-6 different beers, very much worth the $1 if you can get on a tour. The guy giving the tour was a pretty funny old guy. You can tell he uses a lot of the same jokes and whatnot but it was entertaining.
The beers are all fairly mediocre, nothing is amazing but nothings that bad either. I didn't eat there so I can't speak to their food but it looked pretty good. The bar was really large, they had 1 or 2 casks as well as a large selection of their beer. As others have said, it's worth hitting but if you only have time for one place Portsmouth is a bit better for a brewpub.
The actual brewery was very sterile and factory-like whereas Smuttynose was much more micro feeling and more home-y.
