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.

I've been here twice now. The first time was with my friend the afternoon before his wedding, we got lunch and did the sampler before we went to the rehearsal dinner. I found everything reasonably priced and the beers were all pretty solid.

I came back again this past weekend with a few friends after going on a Smuttynose tour and getting a card for a free pint there. I got the IPA and a friend got it on cask and we tried them both while playing a game of pool in the basement. It was really nice and relaxing. We didn't order any food but were were all at the bar chatting with the bar tender and we ended up getting some chicken nachos that were made accidentally and they were fantastic! Great bar food, and needless to say we demolished them.

One of the best pubs in the area, totally worth checking out. I've had KtG once and it was amazing so I'm planning on going back to KtG day next spring.

Second time visiting and just love this place. Everything is done right. Was fortunate enough to get my palate entangled in two pints of 'Nuggins' ipa. More fortunate to discover they bottled (that day) a bunch of bombers and selling them in the small retail shop. Their plough mans ate is about the best I've ever had.
