The Portsmouth Brewing Company in Portsmouth, Ohio, is proud to announce their new line of handmade, craftbrewed Bottled Beer, with the debut of the famous Portsmouth Pilsner.

Whether you are tasting it for the first time, or falling in love all over again, Portsmouth Pilsner satisfies with the crisp and refreshing flavor of the Noble Hop, Czech Saaz, perfectly balanced with the pleasant aftertaste of domestic 2-row malt.

The PBC brews with only the finest all natural ingredients: filtered water, grain, hops and yeast, with no added chemicals or preservatives.

Ohio's oldest operating brewery, founded in 1843, the Portsmouth Brewing Company is hometown proud and owned and operated by Americans.

Bottled Portsmouth Pilsner can be found at fine local restaurants and bars, and 6-packs can be purchased at local carryouts and groceries. Cases, 6-packs and single bottles are now available at the PBC, so take one home today!

The PBC hopes to expand their bottling line to include the classic Red Bird Ale, the light-bodied brew, Crystal Gold Lager, and the mythic Vulcan Dark Lager along with seasonal brews. So, if you love Red Bird Ale, drink your bottled Portsmouth Pilsner because all of your support will go into the next offering of bottled beer.

Now on tap at the PBC is Portsmouth Pilsner, Red Bird Ale, Vulcan Dark Lager, American Pale Ale, Babe's Brown Porter and Belgian Orange Tripel. (As of 10 Nov. 2011)

This is a tough one. Love the idea that you can find craft beer almost anywhere but...you really don't want to find it here.

Building is old and interesting and it looks like it could be a great bar but there is just a...smell...like mold or mildew or something that covers the place. Felt like wet carpet in there. I had to convince my wife not to turn around and find somewhere else to go.

We got there at 2:30 on a Friday afternoon and had to search for a waitress who was not too pleased that we decided to come by. Place was dead except for a couple of old guys at the bar.

Got the brown porter which was fine - a little sweet and with absolutely no roast - more like a southern brown, but dark.

Ordered the Red but she brought me what I think is their pilsner. That was undrinkable. Cidery and so much DMS that you could smell it from a foot away.

Food wasn't pub food, or restaurant food - it was low-end bar food - reheated hamburger and a fish sandwich that came straight from the freezer.

Not worth the trip, not worth walking in.

This brewpub is located in downtown Portsmouth, basically right along the Ohio River in a small town. They have on street parking as well as a lot across the street from the brewpub. The building is really old and interesting to see inside. Inside there is numerous references to 1843, apparently the date to which this pub originates. Also have a lot of interesting beer memorabilia inside.

Outside of the building not a ton of good to say about the place. They have a sampler which comes in extremely small tastes. They were out of basically everything they offered, including all dark beer. They had a decent pale ale and red ale. Otherwise, the lager, pilsner and ginger shandy were very average.

Not a place I'd take the long trip to drive to withot a reason, but at least there is a place in southern Ohio if you are in the area. They also offer food, but overall it appears to basically be a very basic pub menu.
