Nice brewpub in downtown. The beers were pretty good and so was the food. Knowledgeable waitress and bartenders, but seemed a bit understaffed at times. They also sell Smuttynose beers on draft.

Great microbrewery in a great building in Portsmouth. I tried the sampler and appetiser menu. The food was delicious, followed by some great beer. Staff were friendly, the place was clean. Good stop.

Stopped for dinner... had the "paddle" sampler of the beers for the night. Food was quite good as was the beer... Scotch Ale was the best that night. Bar area is small, but the service was good in spite of busy they were... we only waited 20 minutes on a Friday night. Worth the trip...

20080729 Affordable place for both beer and food. Somewhat small bar area is a bit cramped but the beer and service were good. Food coming out looked fresh and solid. I had chili/salad combo which was fine though nothing exciting. The beers are decent top to bottom. Limited selection of bombers in the gift shop.

beer tour, 09/22/08. Nice brewpub located in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Parking located practically next door (like maybe 50 feet away). Hostess directed us to booth quickly, although they were very busy. Waitress stopped by and left menus and took drink orders. I ordered the beer sampler, which was comprised of 7 house brews and 3 Smuttynose brews as well (apparently they are affiliated). All beers were pretty good, especially liked the Kolsch and the Bottle Rocket IPA, which was very hoppy without being absurdly bitter. Food was good as well, I ordered chili, which came with sour cream, jalapenos and tortillas and was spicy but not over the top. Price was reasonable, food and beer were good, highly reccomend.

MMMMMM.... Had Kate the Great on Tap here today... Excellent atmosphere- lively and quite inviting. Bartenders are quite amiable and LaPanza lounge is a great place to hang out and quaff the breweryís tastey brews. Company store also attached in case you want some merch...

Nice place, wooden and stylish. Wide variety of brews on tap, though I managed to miss all the really special ones. No Kate the Great for me. Grumble. The best brew was the American Mild that I got a bomber of from the gift shop. The food was interesting, but didnít blow my mind. At least they gave it a go. Will return next time Iím driving by.

Nice brewpub in a very pleasant Maine town. Well worth the visit. The ambiance is local. Lots of wood: everything is wood. Big enough to relax but small enough to feel cozy. Friendly service. Excellent selection for a small brewpub: itís nice to get ten beers in your first flight. It was $15 for the ten samplers when we were there, alternatively $1.75 for two of them. No guest taps as far as I know unless you count Smutty.

The place looks nice, it feels more like a restaurant that serves house beer than a brewpub, the atmosphere is pleasant and the food is good. The beer is pretty good, thereís always a nice selection of house beers and some Smuttynose offerings. Definitely worth a visit.
