Very cool place to stop just south of Portsmouth. This location houses their new production facility along with a restaurant. The brewhouse offers 4 free samplers of beer, a tour, and a shop to buy regular bottles and rarer Smuttlab beers. The location is quaint and serene. The star of the location, however, is the 6 month old Hayseed restaurant. Not only does it have 24 taps, with 7-8 rare Smuttynose beers, it offers flights, the beers are cheap, the servers are super nice and genuine, and it offers an extensive menu. Great spot that is a must stop.

Large industrial brewery with a shop where you can purchase swag and bottles, and a little bar in the brewery. Great because you’re pretty much in the brewery operation. I did not do the tour but still got to do the tasting. 4 beers, free, out of 8 on tap. Ample sized pours and the bartender opened a bottle as well. Great customer service from her, and so-so from the people working the shop. Beer quality is solid, and prices are very nice. Plenty of parking. Atmosphere was beautiful under the thick blanket of snow. Essential stop.

Stopped by today and took the tour of the new building. Free tour lasted about 20 minutes with 4 4 oz samples afterwards in the shadow of the behemoth fermenters. Huge production scale these days, 85 barrel brew length with 270 barrel fermenters damn. Gift shop with lots of clothing and bottles to go. The restaurant is not open yet they estimate later this year, I look forward to coming back and checking it out when they do open.

Just visited the new brewery. It is a great place, nestled on an old farm. A beautiful new building which is very efficiently designed. After a tour they have a bar area set up right next to the fermenters. 6 taps, and a few standing tables. The tour is free, as are the samples. They have the old farmhouse moved, and are rennovating it to be a restarauunt and pub. It should be good!

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 didn’t 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 I’ll 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, it’s 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 I’ve 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 couldn’t 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 d’Shire) that had not been officially released yet. Don’t 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.
