I noticed that several of you wrote in response to Tyler’s post about tapping the final keg of Portsmouth Lager and wanted to throw in my two cents’ worth. Here’s the short story:

Yes, Portsmouth Lager has been retired, and yes, you surmised correctly that it will be replaced at the Portsmouth Brewery by Smuttynose’s new Star Island Single.
If you’d like to read my long-winded explanation for why we decided to phase Portsmouth Lager out of the Smuttynose lineup, you can visit my blog, Smuttynose Tavern, where I go into it at some length.
In the meantime, enjoy the last of the Portsmouth Lager, and please let us know what you think of Star Island. (I’m heading into town shortly to have one myself.)
