On our trip to Portland for a nice long weekend we stopped into Portsmouth for dinner along the way. Very laid back feel here in spite of it being fairly crowded (Friday dinner rush). Staff was super friendly and courteous. Food was good, and beers were solid as well. Certainly somewhere worth stopping, and one I will be back to at some point.

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.

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.

Large, old-looking traditional style place. Crowded on a weekend at lunch time, but I squeezed into a barstool and got good service, one very tasty beer after another. Friendly staff and clientele. Very tasty food, so Iíd recommend eating here too. A must-visit. Best to park in the garage just around the corner, follow the signs.

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.

Really nice place that my brother and I visited on our way to Bar Harbor. Great pub-grub and several interesting beers on tap, that I wouldnít have been able to find in bottles. Certainly one of the best brewery visits on our Maine trip.

Atmospherically a bummer in the middle of this tourist-heavy summer weekend. Great service at the bar (duh). Perfectly good selection of beers and guest taps to keep anyone happy.

Pretty solid spot in a touristy town. Lots of people on a Monday night, good loud vibe. A dozen or so of their taps and guests. Nice good options and service is spot on.

This was a nice little brewpub. Located right in the middle of the main part of town, it was an easy stop in as we were doing a quick walk through the city. They had about 8 or 9 Portsmouth & Smutty beers plus 1 or 2 guest tabs. The food was above average for bar food.

The ambiance of Portsmouth Brewery is like a cool old-school pub. We spent our time downstairs which is basically just a bar with a pool table and a shuffleboard with a few tables and a couch. Very chill environment in the basement. I had a pint of mint and Chinook infused stout on cask. I thought it was very tasty. Itís a solid stop.
