I went for lunch on my own and sat at the bar. The bar was made of wood and there were some mini bars seperating the main bar and some of the tables. Funky art on the walls, which is not surprising if you are familiar with Portsmouth and it’s art community. Its location is in the heart of Portsmouth’s historic (and some say haunted) district. It is easy to get slowed down on the narrow streets but there’s a parking garage nearby. But I don’t mid hoofing it about a half a mile from the municipal parking lot where there is free parking. You can buy this cricket bat shaped slotted holder with up to ten 3-oz samplers of the brews on tap for $7.75. The brews change with the season so if you are looking for Kate, the Great...go next November. THe wait staff was well dressed, knowledgable, helpful, and friendly. The menu is typical for a brew pub with inexpensive sandwich choices and a good variety of appetizers. I didn’t order a main course. I had the Pulled Pork. There’s a gift shop in the building where you can pick up growlers or 22 ounce bottles of the brews of the season. Reasonably priced. I got out of there for under $15.00.

Nice stop for a couple of beers with the Budster. Got a shirt, glass, girl behind the counter (retail) was real nice and helpful. Beer selection was great plenty to try and the bartenders pleasant. Warm day and beer went down nice and cold. Didn’t eat here but the ambiance was cool, hopefully can check the place out again sometime.

Nice place for beer... Wasn’t too fond though of the service nor the food - but I really went for the beer and they had a huge selection, and I liked it.

Visited on a weekday for lunch. The server was actively hostile we apparently interrupted her day. The Brown ale had major diacetyl. The pale was ok, not aggressively hoppy. I ordered the Black Cat Stout and was told it was out. I mentioned that La Chat Noir was listed on the board. That’s different I was told. It was the best of the lot anyway-had a sting to it, which mellowed into fruit tones. Very smooth stout. The nachos were expensive and subpar.

Went on a weekend afternoon for lunch. Place was crowded but we got a table quickly. Had a nice amount of beers to choose from and the one’s I had were well done. Tried a couple different styles and I was not disappointed. Food was good and the menu seemed to have a good variety. Friendly service. They’ve got a small gift shop as you exit the restaurant if that’s what you’re into. I had fun.

Great local microbrewery. Try the sampler! they are often very generous with how many they give you! They’ve always got a wide variety of types and styles of beers, so everyone can always find something they like. Good, reliable food selection, often with excellent specials.

Visited on a Saturday night, the place was very crowded. It didn’t take forever to get a seat near the bar, and it only took about two beers before our table was ready. Great food, a bit pricey, but a reasonable value given the quality and portion size. Dave, our waiter, was excellent, even though the place was busy, he treated us like we were practically the only people in the place. Very nice beer selection. I only have one complaint, and it’s a big one. Don’t bother bringing your own growlers to fill, unless they are from that brewery, they won’t give you a fill-only price. I left empty-handed after coming back the next night, hoping to have great beer to take home with me.

Good selection on tap. Good food. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. I was disappointed to have missed out on the Kate the Great, but must get there immediately upon release next time. Parking is .75 an hour in the municipal lot right around the corner from pub.

Établissement visité le dimanche 24 juin 2007 vers 14h00. Ambiance: Boiserie et brique partout. Assez bruyant. Service: Il est très attentionné, on a pris le soin de me présenter les bières disponibles. Sélection: 9 fûts lors de ma visite, quelques bières de Smuttynose en fût. Nourriture: Nous avons pris le "Brasserie linguine avec saumon" et le "Chicken marsala with mushroom ravioli". Le tout étant succulent surtout le saumon grillé sur mes pâtes. (52e rating d’établissement)

Defiantly the best brewpub in the seacoast for beer selection although the food is a little pricey (most restaurants downtown are). The beer sampler is well worth it, they also have a local cheese plate on the menu that paired well Hint: Go for lunch and check out the downstairs bar it’s a hoot
