Nice clam chowder, very good beer and pleasant service. The profiteroles dessert was also yummi. Good experience overall.

We didn’t eat here, but loved grabbing a drink before dinner. Very cool atmosphere- you can see how they brew the beer. Even the bathrooms are brewery themed.

Stopped in for lunch on a Saturday and had about about a 20 minute wait. They use a text alert system so there's plenty of shops to keep you occupied while you wait for your table. The place is quite big with a downstairs, and several off shoot rooms. There is a bar that you can get a full offering from as well as eat at. Windows into the brewing equipment adds some fun to the overall ambience. The food was good and based on the other dishes that I saw being served around us it all looked very tasty and potentially a draw back in a future visit. Specials and a large menu offering cover off on all of your desires.

I always appreciate a brewery that can make good beer and provide good food and the Portsmouth Brewery achieves this. They are always changing their daily specials menu and have a solid menu with vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan options. As for beer, they also have a great variety with seasonal changes and some nitro options.

We stopped in during happy hour for a few drinks. The waitress was very good and knowledgeable about the beer list. All their beers were $4 during happy hour and it was half off their snack menu. We opted for their traditional mussels (which were not on the snack menu) and they were amazing. Better than the ones we had at a more upscale restaurant on our trip. We will definitely be back next time we are in Portsmouth!
