American Mild

Two assistant brewers ago here at the Portsmouth Brewery, JT (who now happens to brews for Smuttynose), said ,"Man I love the IPA but after 3 of them I cant stand up out of my stool with out stumbling." Right there the Portsmouth brewery's American Mild was born. It is a mild ale, meaning low in alcohol only 4% abv and with 20 IBU's. But it is hopped with many different American IPA style hops, in the kettle, hop back and even dry hopped in the Fermenter so it smells and tastes like an IPA. Great beer for sitting and having a few with friends.



  1. Hey Tyler, any chance you guys, or Smutty, enter the World Beer Cup in 2010? I would imagine you guys could clean up.

  2. Smuttynose and P. Brew both enter beers into the GABF (Great American Beer Fest) in Denver. The Portsmouth brewery won a silver medal for our Wheat Wine last year. But we haven’t sent beers to the world beer cup yet. We will see for 2009, or even 2010. Thanks for the vote of confidence
