A fairly large brewpub with a full food menu. Located on a quaint street in Portsmouth, NH. There were nine beers on tap when we visited, along with guest beers.

BEER:
Genny I Got Your Number (3.50) – An ale fermented at lager temperature, is it a K├Âlsch? Could be, it’s certainly light and crisp. Just enough hop bitterness to balance malty sweetness. Contains flaked corn, which is more appropriate in a cereal bowl than in a beer recipe.

Surrender to the Flow New England IPA (3.50) – Flowery bouquet at the start. Rather light-bodied. Hop bitterness just right to make this a drinkable beer.

Vienna Lager (2.75) – Amber lager, lacking in caramel or roasted malts. Hop bitterness is at an unadventurous level. A nice amber lager, but well short of a true Vienna.

Market St Porter (3.50) – Roasted and chocolate malts dominate. It’s a good start, but more is needed. Low level of hop bitterness, which is fine for this style. Creamy mouthfeel.

Libeeration Gruit Ale (3.50) – Strange and kitschy combination of fruity and herb flavors. Herbs are alleged to help older women adjust to hormone changes. Light and refreshing.

FOOD:
The menu has lots of choices, so there will be something for everyone. While this is not fine dining, it’s a significant step above typical bar food.
