Blog : Celebrate Portsmouth Beer Week with Redhook Brewery!

By Katelyn | Feb 23, 2015 | in

Breweries and restaurants around Portsmouth have teamed up to celebrate local beer and to push Portsmouth further along in becoming known as a great American beer city. Portsmouth Beer Week will be in full swing from February 21- March 2, with various tastings and events throughout the city each night of the week. Local breweries such as, Redhook Brewery, Smuttynose, The Portsmouth Brewery, Earth Eagle, and Throwback, along with regional breweries, will work with Portsmouth restaurants to bring guests unique tastings and offerings.

Redhook Brewery is a Seacoast New Hampshire staple, and is at the center of many of the events during Beer Week. The Redhook Longhammer IPA will be featured at the 4th Annual Clash of the IPAs at TJ’s on February 24, where guests can experience a long list of IPAs from around the country and pick their favorite. On Wednesday, February 25 Redhook will be featured at the free New Hampshire Beer Tasting at the Craft Beer Cellar along with other area breweries such as 603 Brewery, Kelsen Brewery, and Tuckerman’s Brewing Company.

Redhook will be kicking off the start to the weekend with the Redhook Brewers Pub Crawl on Friday night at various restaurants in Downtown Portsmouth. The brewers responsible for the one of a kind beers will be at RiRa Irish Pub, Fat Belly’s, The Thirsty Moose, and The Rusty Hammer, to meet guests and share their stories about working at Redhook Brewery. Visitors will also have the chance to win prizes at these local establishments and can enjoy $3 pints of the Longhammer IPA, ESB, and their latest small batch creations. As we move toward the end of the 2015 Beer Week, Redhook will celebrate with the 6th annual showing of a “beer inspiration” movie, which this year will be Beer Runners. The documentary showing will begin at 11:30 a.m. and will be preceded by an optional 3 mile Beer Run around Pease Tradeport. All proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the Pan Mass Challenge, an organization that raises money for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber cancer institute.

In addition to the special events throughout the week, Redhook will be offering small batch taste testings and tours at the Brewery all week long. Visitors at the events and pub also have the chance to enter to become a brewer for a day. Don’t miss this once a year chance to enjoy craft beer from Portsmouth breweries and regional breweries, while helping to put the City of Portsmouth on the beer map!
