Review during social distancing. Brewery is location in between an industrial area and a neighborhood. The "patio" backs up to a pond. They have QR codes on their picnic table. I scanned it and order my beer online - including payment. The bartender brought beers out and called names to figure out who ordered it. The taproom inside was small with most of the floor space committed to brewing tanks. Good beer.

Swung through here with JLindros on a trip to Portland. This place was had a really nice vibe. Spacious with a view of the brew tanks and large wide open air bays that faced the little meandering salt water inlet. It appeared that they were going to be constructing an outdoor deck or patio in the immediate future which would be nice. I also really liked the size/shape of the glassware they used for small pours. Beers were all decent enough, nothing earth shattering but nothing offensive. The person working behind the bar was friendly and informative when asked questions about the beer. There was a nice selection of cans available. I don't think I would go out of my way to visit this place again, however, if I happened to be in the area in the summer months I would certainly swing by for a beer with the view.

Amazing view! They have big door openings to the river in the background, with bar seats facing it, which is incredible to sit and drink with that view. Looks like their setting up a fence around there which will probably have tables in the future, so that's awesome. It's a modern style building with the brewery in the background, and bar in open space with industrial tables around. It feels like you're drinking in a brewery.

Service was fairly quick other than the large flights in front of us as he was alone. He was friendly and helpful. They had 6 or 7 beers on tap I think, all their own. A mix of a few styles but mostly IPAs like everyone else. None of the beers were bad, but nothing was really that special either. A decent place to checkout when you're in the area, especially for the quiet view.

Really cool place. Visited Portland, ME from my home in Boston, and hit here as a pit-stop on my trip back.
Grabbed a flight, and all the beers were really solid. Staff was awesome and friendly, and we chatted about the music playlist going on. Light on t-shirts, but I take that as a good sign as they are selling! Grabbed some cans to go. Overall, an excellent experience. Will definitely hit here again when I head north.

This is a great spot in the West end of Portsmouth, a open space tap room, in the same large space as the brewery, with a view of the a North Pond.

They are producing a wide range of hoppy beers, in the New England style. They come across a bit like a NH version of Bissell Brothers. As is the law in NH, when you don’t serve food, you can only get 4oz samples. Although it is common for people to order a tray (4 samples) . You can also buy 4 packs of cans to go, availability varies as stuff goes fast.

Very pleasant place to hang in the summer. If you want to explore beyond the downtown area of Portsmouth to the neighborhoods, then this is a local gem. You can walk there from downtown, but the “informal” short path is hard to find, driving is the easy way, lots of parking nearby.

On vacation so I stopped in here. The brewery is located on a road near downtown. It's location away from the downtown offers it plenty of parking, which was nice.

You enter and you have the brewery to your right and probably about 8-10 tables on your left. In the front is a wide range of taps; some kicked for this particular day, but in general it looked like they offered 9 to 12 taps. The freezer behind the bar had numerous 4-packs. Many of the brewery's offerings seemed to be offered by can.

The bartender was extremely friendly and helpful to me. She provided detailed info on the beers that were useful in my purchasing decisions.

Overall, a great location for a brewery; away from busy downtown. And very cozy with friendly staff,

Cool little brewery. Tap room is an ok size. It's a space blocked off from the rest of the brewery with clear views of the brewery equipment. Large windows let in a tone of light. Beers were great. Very IPA heavy. Only pour 2oz pours but can keep going back up. Sell cans to go. Went in the winter time, but they have a decent outdoors area I'd like to check out in the warmer weather months.
