On Saturday John and I went to Portsmouth, NH for a little day trip. We went on two brewery tours, had an awesome sushi lunch, and did some shopping downtown. It was such a great day!
I sampled the Single Island Star and John sampled the Pumpkin Ale:
Stuff is a all over the place at Smuttynose but it was pretty cool to look at:
The brew kettle and the boil kettle:
Krausen overflow and the bright tanks:
The bottling line and capping machine:
The warehouse (about a week’s supply!!):
And an IPA sample before we left:
The tour was pretty lackluster, as my Yelp review there says, but I’m glad we went.
Down the rickety, teeny tiny staircase:
One brew tank and three fermentation tanks:
After the tour we walked around downtown Portsmouth and shopped at a bunch of cool shops.
The first stop was
LeRoux Kitchen (aka-heaven):
Our haul (parchment paper, honey peanut butter, sea salt, hot chocolate mix, and black truffle oil):
A Halloween chocolate:
Awesome little shop:
John found something he wanted: an umbrella katana
After an awesome day we headed home to get ready for the tailgate/BC football. Bye Bye Portsmouth!
