The Portsmouth Brewery will typically have 6-7 of their own biers on tap, plus usually 3 from their sister brewery, Smuttynose. They may also have a guest tap on, which has seen Moat Mountain and Sierra Nevada as recent "guests". Growlers cost $4.00 for the glassware, then $10 to $18 for the actual brew, depending on the style. Be advised, they don't usually growler any of their stouts. Also available in the pub are 22oz bottles of Smuttynose Big Beers, plus their "Brewers Cellar" offerings, with items such as Chimay and Ommegang. The adjacent store sells a wide array of high-quality clothing, as well as 22oz "bombers" of Portsmouth bier, ranging in cost from $5 to $10.

Been here a couple of times over the last year. My wife and I really like it. We have taken a couple of day trips to Portsmith NH and made a day of it. We normally grab lunch at the Redhook Brewery, do the tour, then spend the day in Portsmith and hit up the Portsmith Brewery/Pub for dinner, it's a good time. It's got a pretty good atmosphere, fairly typical of any other brewpub, they try to make it a little vintage looking it seems. The quality overall is pretty good, with the service being pretty average, when it gets busy in there you might have to wait a bit. The beer selection is good, they tend to have a lot on tap. Most of their own brews and a hand full of their sister-brewery Smuttynose. You can also get Growlers at the bar and theres a gift shop with shirts and other gifts as well as 22oz bombers. The food is pretty standard for a quality brewpub, they have some interesting courses. I've gotten the crab rangoon dip before I thought it was pretty good and a clever idea. Overall the value for what you get is good. I'm sure I'll be back sometime in the not to distant future.
