August 2011. Not far from I-95, this expansive campus near the former Pease AFB is an interesting spot for a fun restaurant and brewery tour. Friendly service and stalwart Redhook ales are draw enough. Worth a detour. Brewery #535.

This bar stands in stark contrast to that of Smuttynose. It was more crowded, and certainly more rowdy. The only spot to pick up a beer from the bar was a space next to a drunk large guy hitting on a chick, and as I got my bear, he shooed me away ("thaatís my shpot")although he later apoligized to where some elderly couple had made room for me. I am sure the vast majority people that come here are very nice. The beer is the Red Hook beer, so average for most, with occasional above average. Parking was good. Location a bit off the beaten track. Bartenders were alert, I did not receive nor did I ask for any discussion on the beer itself.

Pretty generic brewpub with a large open dining area and a small gift shop. Service was okay. Selection is pretty much all Redhook beers with the standard lineup available as a flight, but the main draw is the brewmaster specials and seasonals. Varied food menu and all the items we ordered were very good. Overall a decent place to visit and have a few pints.

I first went here with liveFREEorRye and I canít believe Iím just now rating it!! "most of the bartenders know everything about the beer they serve. Down to what hops are used to brew what beer, IBUís, ABV, where the style originated, etc. They food isnt anything amazing but decent pub food. The beers are cheap and you can take a tour of the brewery for 1$ and you get to try all their beers(excluding the limited releases) and get a souvenir 4oz tasting glass. See the largest beer fridge in NH"

Located in the Pease International Tradeport, a former military base turned into a business-industrial complex, the Redhook Brewery is a large but unobtrusive building next to a hotel. Stepping inside you immediately see the gift shop with their bottled signature beers for sale. Growlers are also available. The bar curves along the edge with several two-seater tables and four-seater booths throughout the dining area. Thereís a fireplace lounge area. There are a dozen or so beers on tap with a mixture of signature brews and brewpub-only brews. The food is your typical pub fare and I had the pulled pork, which was served to me in under ten minutes. Friendly staff. Not a bad place to enjoy lunch or dinner.

Me and my step-dad had gone for the tour, which featured a sampling of their year-rounders at a tabletop near the mash tuns. The bar itself at the front room is inviting, and comfy, but they donít usually have very much to pick from. Sometimes theyíll tap a seasonal. Bartenders were either helpful or distractedly useless.

Rats, just missed the tour! The building looks like a late 70ís early 80ís rambling set of peaks and slants. The inside kind of cool, picked up a shirt and some glass ware and a discontinued pull tap cheap. One of the places we hit on our New Hampshire tour. Beer was great, food was fine nothing fancy. Staff was helpful with directions.

I went there for lunch. There are no rare Redhook beers here--only about 6-7 beers. Also, the food is slightly high, and the service was very slow (took 1.5 hours for lunch, and had to almost scream at the waitress to get more water). Food was mostly good--the chili is the best deal for the money. They have no fryer (they would be prosecuted for this in the south), so no fries with the burgers. And of course the day I go has to be a day when all tours are cancelled.

Pretty unexciting selection of brews, nothing extra or special or rare. I was really hoping to try something I hadnít ever seen before. But there was nothing extra, nothing that couldnít be had in stores. The food wasnít at all bad, but it wasnít what Iíd expect from a restaurant. Perhaps because at this place, they didnít have a full-service restaurant-quality kitchen. Therefore, the menu was simple and consisted of things that could be put together with minimal preparation. Chips were served instead of french fries because they do not have a frialator. The atmosphere in this place was somewhat sterile and office-like, (perhaps because it is a new bulding), not really welcoming or rustic or brew-pub-ish. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful, the service was good. I thought the food was slightly overpriced considering I could have easily made myself anything that they had on the menu. The only reason Iíd go back would be to take a tour, or if they offered some special rare brews.
