|Black Friday at Smuttynose!
The day after Thanksgiving is often a day for shopping, televised sports or the avoidance of shopping. Smuttynose is proud to offer you another option- beer!
Our original/current Heritage Avenue brewery is opening from 1pm-7pm on Friday, November 29 for beer sampling, meeting-and-greeting, tours, and retails sales. In addition to Bouncy House bottles and a wide selection of Smerchendise, we’ll have holiday discounts on Winter Ale, Barleywine and Scotch Ale cases and a limited amount of glassware giveaways for case purchases. This may be your last chance to see the original Smuttynose, so please stop in for a visit. No reservations are necessary.
If you’re in downtown, Portsmouth Brewery will be holding their own Black Friday sale in the retail shop, while our service team delivers food and drink to a lively, festive crowd.
Beer Socials are Back for 2014!
Chef Jon and Head Brewer Tyler have created a slate of beer socials for early 2014. Closer to the event, we’ll announce menus and reservation availability through our social media and email list. Don’t forget, Imperial Pint Club members get first crack at special event reservations and a discount.
Coming up soon at Portsmouth Brewery:
Ginga Ninja, a hoppy red ale with ginger; Holidaze Porter, spiced with ginger, galangal and honey; Biere de Garde, malty Belgian farmhouse ale; PBrew Bock, perfect for cold weather lager-time; Sake-Rice Hybrid Ale, is justwhat it sounds like, but it needs a name (please post suggestions on our Facebook or Twitter); and last, but not least, Winter Weizen, a hearty hefe.
Bouncy House, a Short Batch release that’s hoppy but low in alcohol, is out now; Pure Biss (December 8 debut), an unconventional witbier brewed with star chef Jamie Bissonnette, features spruce tips, grapefruit zest and kaffir lime leaves; Barleywine is our current Big Beer release and should be in most markets now. Imperial Stout is on deck for January.
2014 holds a lot of new things for Smuttynose, including a refresh of our packaging designs. Here’s the new Variety Pack!
Portsmouth Brewery is now on Instagram! Follow us for great food pictures, groaningly bad videos and other images from 56 Market Street.

Portsmouth Brewery E-Store
This revamp foreshadows our brand new websites which are in the midst of construction. We expect them in early 2014.
Brewery Construction Update
The new Smuttynose project continues to move closer to functionality. Our new centrifuge is in place and the packaging line is laid out and being assembled as best we can.
I say, “as best we can,” because our state-of-the-art brewhouse and bottle filler are on a boat, crossing the Atlantic, as you read this. Obviously we can’t brew without these key piees of equipment, but they’re not far off.
The Smuttynose construction webcam is indoors and pointed right where the brewhouse will be, ready to capture the installation in all its glory. We expect the action to begin in early December, so that would be a great time to see for yourself.
