And we’ve always known that we’re a great place to both do business and unwind from work, but apparently you do too, as The Portsmouth Brewery was voted 2022’s Best After-Work Bar (Seacoast) and Best Business Lunch (Seacoast) by NH Business Review readers. Aww, thanks!

We love to host large groups and private functions. If you are planning a function of your own, check out our function menus or drop us a note and ask how can accommodate your party.
