Finally was in the area to stop at Redhook. Was not what I expected it was huge and had a restaurant that was pack to the gills. We had a great lunch good pub food and we where stuffed. I got to take the tour and well I saw a huge production brewery reminded me of another huge production brew site. I was able to try some great beers at the end and once they saw I knew what I was talking about they gave me more attention. Then the good stuff was broke out. I got to try some experimental brews that have not even been named. Some where a Belgian triple mixed with a chocolate beer that was a tasty little treat. Had a blast on this stop and was sure glad I finally made it. I will be back thatís for sure and I hope to try some more great Redhook brews.

I love the set up here with the brewery and restaurant with the neo-whatever architecture (big metal green roof). Iíd have to agree with others, there is nothing wrong with the food it just isnít note worthy. And they really do under-staff this place. When its packed there is no one to seat you. So you must hope you can somehow wrangle a table if and when it appears you are next in line. You could end up getting skunked. The beer tour is really cool. The one I was on ended with a beer tasting. You could pretty much consume copious amounts free of charge. In the ďrestaurantĒ area there seems to be several beers on tap and one or two cask conditioned beer engine tapped beers. But Red Hook beers, for the most part, were designed to appeal to the masses. Most of their beers are pretty weak. There are just a couple to satisfy a beer geek like me.

My wife and I went to the Redhook Brewery on St Patrickís day 2006. We went for the brewery tour and weíre very impressed. We learned about the whole brewing process and got to sample all their beers and got to keep the sample glass. After the tour we decide to eat at the pub. The food was typical brew pub food and good. Since it was St Patrickís day you could order two of their beers green and they were only $2. I ended up drinking 3 green IPAís.

Itís a pretty amazing setting, thatís for sure. Youíre out in the valley they launch hot air balloons from not far away, and in the summer, you see them float overhead. Itís a craft beer success story in so many ways, and such a big one. And most of us feel pretty good about that, especially if weíre from here. But the bottom line is that the dining room isnít much removed from Dennyís level, and the beer is around that level by craft beer standards. The tour is cool ícause itís such a big operation, so do that if youíre in the area checking out wineries. But your time is definitely better spent elsewhere, checking out the people who are still doing it all the way right, albeit on a smaller scale.

very nice selection of food and exclusive ales. service needs work, more food - less ítude, I know youre too cool for school but it doesnt need to come across everytime i need a refill. the sandwiches are great and reasonably priced for the quantity. only cold sides are available. trivia tuesdays are usually worth the trip there.

Never knew until this moment that there may have been more than 4 (IPA, Chinook, Sunrye, Porter) beers available. Those were the only four tasted on the tour or available in bottles.The short tour (that started late) was fast, friendly, and informal and consisted of brewer history and beer samples/info, Q&A, and viewing brewing operations from balconies. The beers were fresh and excellent, far superior to the bottled stuff we can get here in the Southeast. Correct serving temperature, too.
Big, cafeteria-like pub area. Appeared understaffed.
Print a coupon from the website for free tour and tasting glass. Also, have a good map, because the local roads are somewhat random and the brewery is invisible fro the street; there isnít even a sign until youíre actually in the driveway. Tour starts from the Forecaster Pub.

I got a small order of nachos with my beer - they were killer and the serving size was enormous. Maybe because I was working an event there, and they take care of their own? Idunno. Iíll have to try them again some time when Iím just another customer. The beer is good, but you wonít find one single stellar brew in the whole place.

Interesting layout inside. High ceilings and robust wooden tasbles provide a homey feel but it also has an industrial corporate vibe. All Redhook standards are here. Decent prices and fresh brew, one can’t really complain too much. Fun and cheap brewery tour as well. Worth a visit.

beer tour 09/23/08 Portsmouth location. Stopped by just before 11:30 am on Tuesday, the 23rd. While it took a few minutes to get the attention of a waiter, after we succeeded things improved greatly. I ordered the beer sampler, my wife ordered Iced Tea and we both had clam chowder. chowdah was very good. Beers were well-made, with the longhammer IPA standing out. a very drinkable beer, not overly bitter, just well-balanced. The Octoberfest was also pretty good. We finished to early for the tour, but had another place to visit in the area, so we left with the intention fo coming back for the tour. On our return we were given tickets (well really stickers) for the tour and viewed the facility. The guide, who was also our waiter, was very well informed and articulate concerning the brewing process, styles and company history. After the tour we were taken to a separate tasting room and sampled some more of Redhooks ales. It was a well done tour, good food and beer and a pleasant host. I reccomend both the pub and the tour.
