Smuttynose News Letter


We’ve got your beery plan for the day after Thanksgiving. Read this and pass it on.

Slack Friday

Everyone experiences the holidays a little bit differently. Some folks love the bustle of shopping, seasonal movies and performances, parties, friends, and family. Other people absolutely hate it. Whether you love it or hate it, the heart of the holiday season really kicks off the day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday.

Smuttynose is happy to offer an alternative to stampedes at big box stores; a beer-filled respite from an over-filled house of cousins, aunts and uncles; something you can do for yourself- our second Slack Friday Celebration at our Towle Farm brewery.

On offer, for your enjoyment:

  • A Warehouse Sale of Smuttlabs, Big Beers, and Vintage bottles we’ve been aging in house. Selected Smuttlabs and Big Beer Series releases will be on special offer. We want to start 2016 with a clean warehouse and you’ll need to restock your cellar for the cold weather ahead!
  • A selection of rare Smuttynose Big Beers will go on tap at Hayseed Restaurant:
    • 2010 S’muttonator
    • 2012 Scotch Ale
    • 2010 Imperial Stout
    • 2009 Gravitation
    • 2008 Wheat Wine
  • A trial sampling of two varieties of Smudding (this is NOT an April Fool’s joke!), made by our friends at Echo Farms Pudding in Hinsdale, NH.
  • The Return of the Community Christmas Tree! Smuttynose will donate $2 to the Hampton Community Coalition for each ornament you bring to decorate the tree from Slack Friday until Christmas Eve.
  • Guaranteed turkey-free comfort food specials at Hayseed Restaurant.
  • WXGR FM will be broadcasting live from the brewery.
  • Tours and tastings will be available as usual
  • The disc golf course is open and ready for you.

Last but not least, members of Portsmouth Brewery’s Imperial Pint Club and Smuttynose Big Beer Series Subscribers will save an extra 10% of all Smerch and beer purchased at Smuttynose. Don’t forget your membership cards!


2016’s beer release schedule will be much more structured than 2015’s: 12 Smuttlabs releases, 6 Big Beers, 5 Calendar beers, and our fantastic year round offerings. There may be a few surprises in the pipeline, but officially, there’s nothing to say about things that don’t exist.

Here are the final releases for wild and wooly 2015:

  • November 14: Smuttlabs Smoked Peach Short Weisse (~7%peach berliner-style weisse beer with peaches and beechwood-smoked malt)
  • December 5: Big Beer Series Rocky Road (7.3% dessert stout brewed with cacao nibs, Fluff and aged on amaretto oak)
  • December 12: Smuttlabs Nótt (7.3% dark farmhouse ale)
  • The first new beer of 2016 is the Big Beer Series release of East Coast Common, a hoppy lager that’s been warm-fermented in the San Franciscan style. It’ll be released on January 4.

New Smerch Options!
