Smuttynose demonstrates significant quality, innovation and dedication to the craft. Overall quality, availability and inventiveness puts Smuttynose among the leading regional breweries in New England.
Smutty’s commercially available six- and twelve-packs are usually an outstanding value. Beers tend to be full flavor, ABVs tend to be high. A recently added session beer called Bouncyhouse is a mouth-puckering experience with off-the-charts IBUs that can take some getting used to. In most respects Smuttynose stuff is best served to the knowledgeable — or at least experienced — beer enthusiast. A newbie is going to have a hard time going directly to anything Smutty from something like Corona. It’s well done, smack the taste buds kind of stuff. Heavy? If so, not in a negative way.
Smuttlabs is the experimental arm of Smutty; this is where they develop a number of small batch beers too numerous to list. Past highlights include a Grisette, Gose, Schmutzig, a Bavarian IPA, and Granite State Destroyer — an Imperial Corn Lager.
