Notes:
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.

The final stop after a trip to Ebineezers in Maine a few weeks ago. Love the spilling gold-leafed mug above the entrance. Spacious and surprisingly busy for a Sunday afternoon, my wife and I enjoyed great service good food and of course, beer. The high octane wheat beer was on and unfortunately since I didn't take notes, I can't recall what else I had. Engaged myself in conversation with a couple of locals while my wife took off to shop. Great barkeep who was friendly and efficient. Large bar area seating about 20 or so. Similiarly large dining room surrounding it. The home of Kate the Great and the bar downstairs where the chaos takes place with each annual release was a great spot to visit and one I'll check out again.
