    Very cool little brewery. Small but with an outside beer garden. The beer flights were awesome. Most were good. Food was surprisingly good. Simple menu. In heart of Portsmouth. Gift shop next store

    Ambiance is good. Unfortunately, the food is not that good. They're not seasoned well. Disappointed. Will not come back.

    The Ploughman's Plate is excellent, but I would ask for more bread

    Despite the turn key brewery vibe, this place actually has two or three really interesting beers on the menu that seem to rotate. Try the Project X series.

    Same ownership as Smuttynose! Great bar area with a dozen brews on tap. The beer flight is fun and only $6. Great for a quick bite or settling in for a couple rounds.

    There was a worm in our salad! I'm all for natural whole foods but that was a bit much for me! It's also not really vegan if there is a living creature in your food!

    If you're local, join the Imperial Pint Club. Larger pours and merchandise discounts, plus it's worth it for the end-of-year member party alone.
