Great food at an affordable price. Solid beers and guest taps. Speedy service. Ambiance is awesome for a family or a date night. A must stop if you are in the area!

This is definitely my favorite brewpub in NH. When Iím driving north on I95 to Maine my steering wheel always tugs to the right when getting neer Portsmouth! This is a great brewpub featuring the fantastic Smuttynose beers. The food is great too and you canít lose spending a day or two siteseeing in Portsmouth followed by a visit here.

This is always a must-visit when in New England. Itís been around for years and is one of the most respected local breweries in the region. Their beer is always solid, occasionally genius. Although Kate the Great is no more, theyíve come out with a new alternative that I hope will come to be appreciated as much as Kate.

I visitied Portsmouth Brewery three times this week while in town on business and on the usually slower Sun-Wed nights and business was brisk, always a good sign. Tavern-like, friendly, professional staff, great, fresh beer, their own, other local brews as well as some great out-of-town brews like Green Flash Symposium IPA from San Diego; vibrant, fresh piney citrus hop aroma and one of the creamiest textures Iíve ever had in an IPA, great stuff. The menu is a pleasant surprise as well. Far more than the usual pub fare, fresh, local ingredients with vegan choices right up against full on carnivore, great selection. Right downtown on Market St., a must visit in Portsmouth.

Stopped by the brewpub on a recent tour of the NE. Nice larger bar and restaurant. Had a pint of their Hop Harvest 2 and the bartender was open to about talking up the beers. It was lunchtime and the place was busy. The one beer we had was good, and the place seemed inviting in a good location, close to the waterfront.

Iíve been here several times and finally got around to reviewing it. The Portsmouth brewery is just about smack dab in the middle of downtown Portsmouth on Market St. If you can get yourself to downtown you should be able to find it. The beer is the reason for the trip, and you wonít be disappointed. Just about everything that Iíve had there has been stellar. If you happen there in the winter try to get some Kate the Great RIS itís just an incredible brew. Dark, roasty, chocolatey, smooth, creamy, yum! They normally have a cask offering and 5 to 10 beers on tap. The food is good too and many of the selections on the menu are cooked with beer. The last time out I had the chipotle meatloaf that was cooked with Old Brown Dog Ale. Kids menu is pretty good too, Brittany said they had the best cheeseburgers ever. Service has always been great even when they are very busy the staff has always been great for me. Cons: Seating area is a big open space on two levels and even when its not that busy it is very loud inside. When the place is busy it is hard to hear the person you are seated with. Most of the menu items are pricey. Iím not sure if this is a Portsmouth thing, but I definitely notice that dinner out at the Portsmouth Brewery is a bit on the expensive side. For a family of four it is 10 to 15 dollars more than a comparable meal in Manchester. Overall the food and beverages here are great. I go whenever I have the chance.

My home away from home when frequenting the area on business...been there a dozen plus times now. The place is busy every night and can be loud at times. Service is nothing to complain about. Plenty of semi-cute waitresses who are actually semi-knowledgable about the beer. The menu is really solid...again, been here a dozen or more times and Iíve ordered across the menu, everything is great. They have the best clam chowder Iíve had anywhere. The beer is very solid across the board and they usually have something creative on top of standard styles. Iíve had a wheat wine, a gose, an imperial porter...all well done. 10 taps and a cask. They sell 22ís to go at very reasonable prices, too. Now, if only I could catch a Kate the Great! This might be my favorite dinner place in the whole world.

Really fantastic beers, What a great surprise. Took a little tour and had a quick bite to eat with a few beers and a sampler. Food was solid, and the brews were very exciting! Awesome place!
