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 a bunch of times over the years and nothing ever changes, in fact it might get better.
the atmosphere about this brewery is one of the main reasons i keep on coming back. My friends and i always seem to chat it up with the friendly locals that inhabit this place.Everytime i've been here everyone is so nice.
the service is superb even when the is a wait to get a seat.They really know how to train their waitresses, you never wait more than a couple of minutes before being waited on.
they have a great food selection ranging from burgers, seafood, salads, sandwiches and soups(no disrespect to them, i cant remember everything).Their clam chowder and fish chowder is the best ive had.
They have a great beer selection from beers they brew themselves(that is constantly changing) to a local brewery called Smuttynose, they always have 4-7 beers i can easily drink.
the quality of the beer and food is unmatched by any other place i have reviewed or been to. i will be making many more trips up there and i suggest that you do too
