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.

Have been here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Its a very clean well laid out bar and restaurant. The beer is always fresh and as well as having their own beers on tap they always have smutty, and usually one other breweries beer. they have bottles from a few places as well. The service is excellent and the beer is always fresh and delicious. The food here is really good too, better than most other brewpubs I have been to. all of the prices both food and beer are very reasonable, and next time I go I will be joining their imperial pint club.

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!

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.
