We took the shuttle into Portsmouth NH. What a great town. Can't help but love this place. We stopped here (Portsmouth Brewery) for a flight of beers on our way to the restaurant. We enjoyed our visit and bartender was very nice.

Start with beer tasting next door. Sister business to smuttynose brewery makes for excellent beer. If you know smuttynose and enjoy their products then it's a must. You will not be disappointed. Kids loved their food and we enjoyed the beer.
