Portsmouth Beer Week starts on Saturday!
It’s Beer Week time again!
Being the first brewery in Portsmouth since 1950, we’re always a little extra excited for Portsmouth Beer Week to come around. A lot has happened in the Seacoast Beer Scene since we opened in 1991, which means there’s a lot to celebrate. Back then, no one even brewed an IPA…
Since we don’t sell beer off premise, all of our events are happening in the pub, which gives us a great chance to change things up a bit.
Wanna see our brewery? You can take a brewery tour everyday at 3pm for the duration of beer week. As always, the tours are free and all tour-goers get a coupon for a half-priced sampler paddle.
We’re also excited to announce a Portsmouth Brewery Tap Takeover! It will last all week and it’s happening right in our own bar. That’s right, this is the one occasion when we can offer ten house-brewed beers; no guest taps.
The rest of our schedule is a bit different than past years. Instead of releasing one beer at the end of the week; we’ve got FOUR different collaborations brews coming out over two days. The beers will be available on tap when we open in the morning, but each collaborating brewer will join Tyler in the Jimmy LaPanza Lounge from 6pm-8pm to meet, greet and share samples of one of their own beers, as well as the collaboration. There will also be Chef Todd-created food pairings for each beer. Check ’em out:
Wednesday, February 27 from 6pm-8pm
–Oatmeal Pale Ale, brewed with Rik Marley from Flying Goose Brew Pub. This golden-colored pale ale, gets a soft, yet full mouthfeel from oats in the mash, while healthy doses of Simcoe and Zythos hops add a hefty hop pop. This beer tips the scales at a modest 5.5% and will be paired with cheddar and corn fritters.
