An Honest Cooking Favorite

We have visited Smuttynose Brewing Company a number of times and it is always great! In a brand new facility in Hampton, guests can get up close and personal with their award-winning beer making process, for free. The tour concludes with a sampling of five beers (bring friends so you can try them all!) that you otherwise may not have the chance to taste. Grab a growler or head on over to their new brewpub two dozen more taps and farmhouse cuisine. Visit their website for more information.

Delicious Food and Beer

The Redhook Brewery gives tours for the price of $5, but we have found that after a morning of touring beer facilities it is fun to head to Redhook for some classic American pub food. Without the tour, you will still have the opportunity to try many of their beers that are only served in the restaurant and all while you eat a locally inspired meal.
