Late lunch with my best friend! Caesar salad with grilled salmon & loaded nachos were on the menu! Both cooked perfectly, and nachos definitely enough to share!! Great beers on tap, and a fine selection of spirit concoctions..

Stopped by for a late lunch. Had nachos with pulled pork. Huge platter with plenty of fixings. We also ordered a lamb burger, a rueben and another sandwich that I don't recall. The lamb burger was full of flavor and cooked perfectly. The reuben was chuck full and very filling. Definitely worth stopping by. My husband did have a beer... More

Over the years have been a couple of times at the Portsmouth Brewery, food and drinks have been always good. It can be crazy at times, place can fill up fast.

They had really good beer here, however service was awful. It was a very crazy holiday weekend, and the servers did not know how to handle it. We got a beer and left.

When in Sedona you cannot pass up stopping here for a picture. This is truly amazing. Seeing it close up is unbelievable the size and age of this Red Rick. You have to add this to your list of places in Sedona to stop

While we're always happy to receive a five-star review, I fear that in this case we're getting credit that's owed to another location, presumably one in Arizona. That said, next time you're in coastal New Hampshire, please stop by and give us a chance to earn that five-star review for real! More

They offer a complimentary tour daily at 3:00pm so we decided to check it out. Very small operation but our tour guide is also one of three brewers working there so we got a lot of great information. Aaron obviously loves his work. After, we were escorted to a "secret room" that only the locals know about, where we could... More

Not a ton of beer selections but the ones they had were good- food is typical pub food and was decent. Nothing outstanding but nothing bad.
