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!

The beers are very good and the prices are reasonable. The food was very well prepared, tasty and plentiful. The mussels were delicious !!! The only minor issue was the wait to get a table, not only because it was very busy but more due to the fact the waiters and waitress were chatting among themselves instead of servicing the tables - there was a table that waited at least 10mins to pay the bill. Overall, it was very good.

This place is well known for good beer, and the reputation is still deserved. I have also enjoyed all of the many meals I've had here.

The beer's good (seasonal pumpkin) and our pastrami sandwich on rye was good quality and sizeable. Lunchtime visit. Surrounding diners seemed happy with their choices, we certainly were with ours.

Great place to meet friends over a host of great beers. Very knowledgable waitresses who explain all the beer choices. Will return next time I visit Portsmouth.

My suggestion is to go to the downstairs lounge and enjoy one of the two cask conditioned ails on tap. Quaint bar with large screen tv. Couches. Nice and comfortable. Service always good, and friendly.
