“Great beer and tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We were just passing through Portsmouth and saw that the brewing company gave tours on the first and third Friday's, so we thought we would give it a try. The tour was very informative and the brewmaster was very friendly. The brewery has a great history and the current owners are expanding their ability to distribute their beers to a broader market. I had the hefeweizen and my husband had the Red bird ale. They were both very good. We didn't eat there, but the decor was very nice.

“Great drinks and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting the area and decided to come here. It's a very neat place to visit and everyone loved the beer. Unfortunately our food took a very long time to get. Out waiter was really nice about it and made sure to fix the situation. Overall I'd still recommend it, great food, beer, and friendly service.

“As promised....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Everyone said the lasagna was great and it was. Bread-sticks were nice too. Server was friendly, fun, and took good care of us. Beer was really good too with many selections. Bathroom was clean. They exceeded in every category. Cannot wait to return next time I am down by the river.

“Tasty Beer, Delicious Lasagne, Rustic Surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is the oldest brewery in the State of Ohio which alone makes it worth a visit. Following a grueling 15-mile hike in nearby Shawnee Forest, our intrepid group of 14 descended upon this rustic restaurant for replenishment. The in-house brewed beer didn't disappoint and the German Portsmouth Pilsner was perfect. Many enjoyed the Pale Ale as well. Because several in the hiking group had patronized this pub before, we had arranged that they would have sufficient lasagne to feed us. The lasagne was scrumptious and the service was absolutely stupendous. Never did we need to ask twice for anything and beer refills magically appeared moments after we requested them. Loved this place!

“Pub Grub & Great Local Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Located in a very neat building in the oldest brewery in the State of Ohio, this brew pub offers outstanding beer (love the Red Bird Ale) and adequate, humble food. The steak sandwich is good and I've been told they do a decent burger and good pizza but the beer is the star of the show. Stop is and see the brewing area or maybe take one of their regular tours. They have a nice outside dining area (one of the few in the area) available during the warmer weather months.
