Small craft brewery in a strip mall. Tasty beer, pleasant woman server/bartender. Tasted flight of 6 brews. Tour was minimal. Glasses indicated on Groupon were not available. When I asked about the glasses, they said they were out. Did not meet our expectations.

The beer was amazing but there was no brewery tour or souvenir glass (apparently they ran out last week?)

I was expecting an upbeat brewery with tours and a huge bar. The bar is small, about 8 seats, and we didn’t even get a tour. When we arrived the bartender was glued to her phone and it took a bit to get served. Oh and the ran out of sampler glasses. My boyfriend I collect brewery glassware so it was a shame they ran out. The two stars are for the live Irish music... awesome!

The groupon stated we would get a souvenir tasting glass but the brewery stopped doing that and only gave out stickers. There wasn't a brewer there to give the tour- it was the bartender who didn't have much knowledge of the trade. Very disappointing as this was part of a Christmas gift for my husband who loves craft beer. I would not recommend this to any of my friends.

Tour was rather perfunctory, but it is a small brewery. Souvenir glass was listed as part of the price of the groupon, but was not available when we were there. Beer was ok. Music was great! Bathroom was poorly lighted and not very clean. Probably won't be back.

Friendly staff and owner. Small operation but big taste. Some really great ideas! Hope to see this one get more popular. Recommend the Shuga Pig!

Live Irish music was a plus. Drinks were good and bottles were reasonably priced. Really enjoyed ourselves.

From Our Editors

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Beara Irish Brewing Co. is an Irish brewery located in Portsmouth, NH. We are producing fine craft brews with genuine imported Irish Barley Malt for the discerning public. Other ingredients are locally sourced as much as possible: Water, grains, hops and yeast - no junk. Join us!

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
The O'Sullivan Stout is our best seller. Brewed with genuine Irish Barley, premium grains ad oatmeal. Not too filling and tastes great!

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We lived in England and went back to Louise's island (Bere Island off of the Beara Peninsula in Co. Cork, Ireland) frequently. The bread there is delicious so we pondered "Why doesn't someone make great Irish beer with these grains?" And that set us in motion to make it happen

We love having people try the brew and explain how much they enjoy EVERY ONE! Comments like "This is the best Stout or Brown Ale I ever had" keep us going. We are also helping out local businesses by purchasing products like local NH honey and maple syrup to make our beer special.
