Pizza is top notch. Wings are excellent. I have not had a bad meal here. Past few times they were out of Red Bird? WTH they make it there?

Theirs nothing like having a great tasting pizza from the brewery along with one of their pilsners. The brewery has a great local history all its own. The staff are friendly and helpful and if you dont want to sit inside sit out in their beautiful beer garden

My husband and I have been going here for a while. Portsmouth oldest brewery. My husband says the beer isn't very good but he loves their wings. I personally love the Loaded pub fries... and I don't know what it is about the runny ranch dressing but I just love it.... dip chicken or fries. It is a little crowded.... More

Nice little brewery near the Ohio River in Portsmouth. Excellent craft beers and great bar food. We had wings, onion rings and beer battered mushrooms; all were super tasty. Rumor has it from the locs that the pizza is awesome as well. Worth stopping in for lunch after searching up the antique shops right down the street!

This craft brewery and eatery is located near the end of revitalized Second Street in Portsmouth, Ohio. We stopped by on a recent day during the River Days Festival. The décor in the restaurant area was cozy…mostly country charm. My husband enjoyed a Vulcan Dark Lager and I liked the Peerless Pale Ale, both on tap. This was a nice... More

Best chicken wings in Portsmouth, and I am putting their pizza up for best of the area also. I'm not a big fan of the local beers although it is neat to see the brewery.

Visited on 8/8 while taking a road trip with no destination in mind. Ended up in Portsmouth, OH after a 2 hour drive. Portsmouth Brewing Co did not disappoint. Had the Rib Eye sandwich with their homemade chips and it was excellent and very filling. Had their Pilsner and Red Ale and both were very well made brews! The staff... More

We went to the Brewing company after being told it was owned and operated by the same people that own the Scioto Ribber. It was a Wednesday and the waitress informed us of the wing special, which we ordered right away and then I asked about a beer sampler.Each of their on- premise beers were described and 4 were suggested...
