Directions to Smuttynose and Tour Information

Sign Up Here to Take a Tour of Our Brewery. 

Due to the limited space in our facility and the growing number of folks who come to visit us, we must ask that you make reservations in advance for tours. It's easy and free. Just follow the link below to reserve space in one of our upcoming tours. We're looking forward to showing you around!

Each tour can accomodate 46 guests. We will begin admitting walk-ins 10 minutes before the start of the tour, space permitting.  Walk-ins will be added on a first-come, first-served basis. 

At Smuttynose, tours and tastings are offered Fridays at 5:30 pm and Saturdays at noon and 2:00 pm. If you’d like to inquire about arranging a private tour for a larger group, contact us. Naturally, we recommend rounding out your visit to Smuttynose with a trip to our sister company, the Portsmouth Brewery, New Hampshire’s original brewpub, located in downtown
Portsmouth, less than five miles away.

There is no cost to take a tour of our facility. Instead of charging a fee, we ask that you to make a voluntary $2 minimum donation to one of two non-profit organizations selected by our staff and listed on our donation box.

If you will be bringing your children with you as you tour Smuttynose, please keep them with you at all times.  Also, we urge you to wear appropriate footwear, avoiding sandals, open-toed shoes or flip-flops. We’ve got fittings, hoses, puddles, cleaning chemicals, hot things, cold things and heavy machinery.  These are all interesting things but we’d much rather tell you about them than have you experience them first hand.  You’re better off experiencing the final product – Smuttynose beer (unless of course you're under 21).

*Warning: street signs are as common as hen's teeth in New England. We'll give you the street names, but don't count on there being a sign. Look for the landmarks instead.
