Smuttynose Brewing just moved out of Portsmouth N.H. and into Hampton N.H. on May 31, 2014 so I was there for the grand opening of the newly expanded brewery. The new place gives them so much more room. It doubles the size of their old one. Brewery tours are comprehensive and there were 8 beers to sample at the end of it. The setting has a nice country feel to it. There is a gift shop that has glassware, shirts, stuffed seals, and beer. It is worth the trip for craft beer enthusiasts.

This lace was just OK. They have a formal tour, and offered samples BEFORE the tour, as well as after, which was a nice touch. And you could ask for whatever you wanted, you didnít have to stick to one glass of each. The tour is interesting enough. They have one "aged" beer for sale at the end, also a nice touch. Other than that, all beers were just the standard flagships, I was hoping for a more interesting selection.

This rating is based on the current location. When they move, then I guess Iíll have to go and visit them again. Small little brewery. The staff was very knowledgeable and did a great job of explaining the process. He was actually reminding me a little of Alton Brown by the way he breaking down the molecular process of each step. Was able to try some fresh beer right there in the warehouse. If you happen to be in the area, swing by this place. You can find some aged beers here.

I have been to a great many breweries, but the hospitality that I was shown by JT was other-worldly. As great as JT is, Smuttynose Baltic Porter is even better!!!! Shoals Pale Ale on draft, at the source is devine!!!! This is just a brewery, and is set up as such. There is no more authentic than this, a definite MUST SEE/VISIT!!!

I generally like Smuttynose beers and I like this place. However, itís just a small shop area at the front of the brewery with a few taps for free samples. We went for a tour at 3.00pm on a Friday in April. They also do tours at 1.00pm on Saturdays. The tour was one of the better ones Iíve been to in that you basically get taken around the brewery and can poke your nose in where you want. Although the one we were on was led by a sales person she went and got the brewer for some more technical questions that she couldnít deal with. They all seemed like nice people. There were a few free samples before and after the tour, including a special limited edition, draft only beer (Rouge díShire) that had not been officially released yet. Donít know whether that was just a lucky coincidence or they usually have beers that are difficult to get elsewhere. Or whether you can get free samples outside tour times. Certainly not an essential stop but I enjoyed my visit.

A small somewhat hard to find spot in Portsmouth. This is just the brewery. They were very friendly and willing to give free samples of the four beers they had on tap. The tour showed their active brews. An enjoyable visit from such a small location.
