Smuttynose has been brewing beer since 1994, but we trace our roots back through the early years of craft brewing, to the opening of the Northampton Brewery in 1987 and the Portsmouth Brewery in 1991.
Smuttynose brews a range of beers from our best-selling Finestkind IPA and its seven year-round companions, our calendar beers and The Big Beer Series to the rare and unusual beers of Smuttlabs; we do our best to offer something for almost everyone in the 26 states and nearly 20 countries where we distribute.
We're headquartered on the historic, 17-acre Towle Farm in Hampton, NH. Visitors can take brewery tours and tastings seven days a week; relax with some beer-friendly cuisine in Hayseed, our farmstyle restaurant or enjoy nine holes of disc golf on a course slated to open in August 2015.

Despite initially reaching a verbal agreement to sell Smuttynose Brewing to a New Hampshire entrepreneur, Provident Bank has found another buyer for the distressed craft brewery. Runnymede Investments, a North Hampton-based venture capital and investment firm, has agreed to purchase the struggling brewery and restaurant for an undisclosed sum. The deal for Smuttynose comes exactly one week after the Portsmouth-area beer company was sold at a public auction to Provident Bank, its lead lender, for $8.25 million.
How much is a distressed craft brewery worth in 2018? Somewhere north of $8.25 million, if the scene at New Hampshire’s Smuttynose Brewing earlier today is any indication. An auction run by James R. St. Jean Auctioneers for Smuttynose ended with the company’s banker, Provident Bank, reclaiming the brewery for $8.25 million on Friday afternoon. Immediately after the auction concluded, Norman Rice, a local tech entrepreneur, approached the bank about purchasing the Portsmouth-based company.
