When Portsmouth Brewery Head Brewer Tyler Jones, who just turned 31, describes the restaurant and brewpub’s “do-it-yourself” ethos, he’s not just describing the food on the plate or the beer in the mug.

After serving for years as an assistant under brewing maestro Tod Mott, Jones took over the hop helm in July 2012 intent on continuing with the Brewery’s lauded tradition of fantastic, uniquely honed libations.
