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.

Ahh the Portsmouth brewery home of the Kate the great and many other great beers too. This is a really cool fun spot to hang and have a few pints. Nice big bar lots of tables and outdoor seating for warmer times. They usually have like 7 or so their beers on tap plus some Smuttynose beers too. Food is good I had a burger and it was cooked nice and good portion size. Samplers are available too if you would like to try all there beers on tap and they also have beer on cask when available. i generally like all their beers but some styles I am not into to, so every once in awhile I get a miss. This is a destination for anyone likes to travel and check out new spots.
Cheers

We arrived early and quickly was provided a nice place to sit high in the room. The waiter was pleasant and knowledgeable and we had a nice discussion of the beer available. The food arrived in a timely manner and was well cooked and delicious! Great place, vibe and location!

Great restaurant in a really cool town. lots of good offerings on tap from smuttynose and portsmouth brewing but also some other rare finds. They had bottles of parabola, velvet merkin and sucaba.

Going to the Portsmouth Brewpub, one can expect exceptional service even on the busy days as the management almost always knows how to deal with the crowds. Pretty sure they've nailed it to a tee down to getting people in and out within a reasonable amount of time. I've never had a bad beer here. The food, well, if you don't like the food here, I'm thinking you just don't like food period (have fun starving - lol). What an exceptional place for food and beer. I just need to get there when they bring out Kate the Great out of retirement (oh sigh, when will that ever be).
