The Portsmouth Brewery, New Hampshire’s original brewpub, has been serving great food and outstanding handcrafted beers in a friendly, lively atmosphere since 1991.

We’re open seven days a week, from 11:30am till 12:25 at night (except Thanksgiving and Christmas – that’s when we go home and put our feet up)Christmas Eve last call is at 4pm and closing at 5pm. We are closed Christmas Day and reopen the next day at 11:30am. We are open New Year’s Eve and New Years Day regular hours.

Our kitchen is open till 11pm on weeknights, till 12:25am on Friday and Saturday nights.

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 2017’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.
