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.

Portsmouth Brewery has become a regular stop on my way up to my future in-laws to either grab lunch or a growler.
The atmosphere is always pleasantly busy and vibrant.
The service has always been very good, and the waiters and waitresses have always been friendly.
The food is very good. Some things get a bit pricy, but so far, it's all been worth it.
The building itself is very nice. Both the bar area and dining areas are great, with nice woodwork and interesting artwork on the walls (some from Smuttynose labels).
The gift shop is also cool, with good prices and the opportunity to take home some bottles of brews as well.
The beers are always excellent and the guest taps are always quality brews (today it was SN Bigfoot).
It's also very cool to watch Tod work in the brewhouse, which you can do from the dining area.
If you haven't gone yet, make sure you stop in sometime. It's a great place.

Terrific place, great beer, nice variety and great food. Bartenders knowledgeable and attentive. If you’re in the area it’s a must stop in.

Exceptionally clean brewpub with a vast tapline of their beers, Smuttynose and a light dose of some other New England offerings. Sometimes during tourist season on weekends, it gets packed and they don't take reservations so I say get there earlier than the meal times. Beer is quite good here, though Kate the Great is retired (I think they bring it every back and again if that dude at Tributary allows them to, haha). Check it out if you're in Portsmouth.

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!
