Smuttynose Brewing Company is a brewery founded in 1994 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA. It is named after Smuttynose Island, one of the Isles of Shoals.Founded in 1994 by Peter Egelston as a joint partnership with Ipswich Brewery (now Mercury Brewing Company), Egelston quickly became the sole owner.In 2004, Smuttynose considered relocating to the historic mills in Newmarket, New Hampshire, but the deal fell through in late 2005. Subsequently, Smuttynose began working on plans to build a new brewery on a 10acre parcel along U.S. Route 1 in Portsmouth, but the project met community opposition and was abandoned. As of 2010, Smuttynose is in the process of building a new brewery and restaurant in the town of Hampton, New Hampshire.In 2008, the output of the brewery was 20,000 barrels per year. Gross sales for Smuttynose Brewing Company in 2009 were $5.7 million.The year-round beer lineup consists of Shoals Pale Ale, Smuttynose IPA (aka Finestkind IPA), Star Island Single, Old Brown Dog, and Smuttynose Robust Porter. Seasonal beers include Summer Weizen, Pumpkin Ale and Winter Ale. Hanami Ale, a seasonal Belgian-inspired cherry ale introduced in the spring of 2007, was discontinued in 2011. The Big Beer Series, released throughout the year in 22-oz bottles, includes Barleywine, Wheat Wine, Imperial Stout, Scotch Ale, S'muttonator Doublebock, Maibock, Baltic Porter, Gravitation Belgian-style Quad, Farmhouse Ale, Zinneke Belgian-style Stout and Homunculus. Rotational beers include international award winner, Big A IPA, Vunderbar Pils, and Noonan, a Black IPA named for craft brewing pioneer Greg Noonan.

  • I knew I enjoyed the beer, but visiting the facility took it to a new level. I was able to try beers I hadn't had before. The Baltic Porter and Scotch Ale were amazing! They also have beautiful grounds, with Frisbee golf and other games on site and a beautiful restaurant. Most important for me, they have dedicated themselves to sustainable production, reusing heat, water and leftover grains. Amazing place, if you like beer, check it out!
  • Best priced pumpkin ale I've ever had, and it was delicious too! Many great beers
  • Great beer. Great food. One of the bartenders needs a personality but the others make up for this. Thanks for doing it Right!
  • Good beers and the food was good too.
  • Great and informational brewery tour. Excellent beers on tap.
