    Excellent #craftbeer. Excellent service. Excellent, but somewhat high-end food. Don't miss this one. #Smuttynose

    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

    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

  • Ellen K.

    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.

    Tours on Sat and Sun only. If you go on the Smuttynose tour they will give you a gift card for a free pint at Portsmouth.

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

    Joe Cooper · September 7, 2014
  • Marcus L.

    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.

    Marcus LaBrecque · August 20, 2014
  • Eric L.

    Great food and beer. Salads are awesome. Bring your card from smuttynose and get a free beer.

    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!

    You don't have to steal the glasses, they sell most of the styles. The light beers are excellent.

    Great veg and vegan options - the Reuben really hit the spot

    Cindy Robbins · July 5, 2014
  • Brad M.

    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!

    Brad Marino · June 26, 2014
  • Michele K.

    Great beers and some good desserts too. Try the trifle

    Michele Kociolek-Burkitt · June 22, 2014

    Split an order of Fish & Chips and some Alehouse Mussels. Tons of great 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.

    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
