    Anytime I'm passing through the area it's always a stop for lunch. Beers brewed on site. Food is amazing. I highly recommend the pastrami on rye. Sit in the bar area or outside Back room can get loud

    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

    Located on an idyllic street in Portsmouth, this place provides a cozy respite from the notoriously harsh New England weather. House-brewed beer is available on tap and in casks.- © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    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.
  • Patricia D.
    Good beer selection. Only tv's at the bar and they aren't that big. So if you want to watch any sports this isn't your place. But if you want to have a few good beers with friends its a great spot.

    Sample all 10 beers for $8. The stout and heffeweissen is awesome! The calamari is incredibly fresh and tender. The ziti is a giant warm hug!! End your meal with a stout float... Must try it once.

    Excellent food, drinks you name it! Service is great- they always take good care of you. If you're looking for a place in town I recommend giving PB a go!

    AMAZING Restaurant / Brewery. Get the sampler paddle... 3oz of the 10 beers on tap (4 of which are Smuttynose) Food is super fresh! Great price for a great meal!

    If you make it to the Brewery, it is imperative you order the beer sampler. You get a little bit of everything, and it is a great price for the amount you get!

    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.

    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.

    Very good daily specials for veggies and vegans alike, Sun - Thurs. Ask Chef Todd if the soup of the day is veggie as well!

    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!

    The cream ale is a personal favorite. Nachos are also worth a go. Tip: be sure to visit the lounge downstairs!

    Loyalists have been known to set up camp outside this brewpub for hours in the rain just to taste its rare, once-a-year-only Russian Imperial Stout, Kate the Great. The verdict: Totally worth it. Read more
