Smuttynose Brewing Co & Smuttlabs
Smuttynose was founded in 1994 by the folks who started the Northampton and Portsmouth Breweries. The Granite State’s leading craft brewery is located in the historic seaport city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire and cranks out quality beers available up and down the east coast and event as far west as Wisconsin.
In 2007, they began these experimental brewings, under the Short Batch Series name. As they increased production and volumes of these eccentric beers, they rechristened them “Smuttlabs,” to reflect the creative experimentation found in each batch.
Smuttlabs releases seek to bridge the gap between “rare” and “hard to find.” Brewing on these terms, success can take different forms. Some releases may have semi-regular production and others may never see a mash tun again. There will constantly be Smuttlabs beers in all phases of production from conception, to brewing and fermentation to aging and packaging and we will have both Smuttynose & Smuttlabs at Hop Jam
