Description: Welcome to New Hampshire's original brewpub, a landmark in downtown Portsmouth's thriving restaurant scene since 1991. Our wide-ranging menu is complemented by a selection of our own unique, hand-crafted beers, as well as selected guest beers, including hard-to-find selections from our sister company, Smuttynose Brewing Co. Come for the beer. Stay for the food. We serve all types!

Since being in Portsmouth for the first time, I shacked up my parents there for a night and gave them this restaurant as a recommendation due to its prices and atmosphere. They ordered a bunch of food and were happy. The only thing they said negative was the calamari was not as good as they'd hoped, but the other many dishes were wonderful. This is overall a great restaurant with lower prices than the rest of beautiful Portsmouth.

...we've been to. Food is better than average gastropub. More importantly...this is where they make the excellent Smuttynose beers. Fun upbeat atmosphere, great food, world class freshly brewed beers (like Old Brown Dog ale) make this joint a winner!

We seem to enjoy every Brewery visit more than the last! Despite entering at the peak of lunch hour, the accommodating front desk staff had us seated in under 20 minutes. The atmosphere is cool and industrial, but remains warm and inviting, perfect for a warm lunch on a cold afternoon!
We ordered the Black and Blue chips as an appetizer, we found them delicious, but we all agreed that they could have used a bit more of the topping.
We all ordered burgers, despite our youngest who requested fish and chips.
The kids burger was a surprisingly hearty portion, which pleased our son, who likes to eat (almost) as much as we do!
The kids fish and chips were lacking in flavor and never came together...
The brewery burger was lovely, but filling. I found myself leaving a quarter of a burger on the plate, along with some French fries. But don't let that stop you from ordering this taste sensation!
The drinks were marvelous as well!

What a great place to try a few samples! Their newer Impy Stout is great! So sad they ran out of bottles to buy for home. I guess I will need to return for the "on tap" while it lasts. The staff was great and knowledgeable and the atmosphere was welcoming, fun and relaxed.

We eat here whenever we visit Portsmouth and have never been disappointed. The daily specials are always delicious and they use fresh ingredients with every dish.
