What is Going in the West End Yards in Portsmouth, New Hampshire? A Brewery?
Portsmouth party people and beer enthusiasts, I have news for you. There is a new nano-brewery coming to town, and it is a good one.
Modestman Brewing started out of Keene, New Hampshire, with one man on a mission. Now, they will be a Portsmouth local brewery in no time at all.
Have you seen that building next to the gorgeous West End Yards? The gray one? Well, that will soon look like this.
In a few months, hopefully, the brewery will be open right on Route 1.
According to the Facebook page, "MM EAST will be a satellite tasting room with a seating/serving capacity of over 200, we will have an outside Biergarten, an inside beer hall offering progressive food, event space, live music, amble parking, and more!"
We should all read that twice because WOW. What more could you want in a brewery? I originally thought it might go into the West End Yards; however, the plan is for the brewery to go into the one-story building just to the right of the larger West End Yards structure.
That is a pretty big space for a nano-brewery, which is super exciting.
Wondering what else will be in the West End Yards Complex? Check it out here.
Back to the beer: if you have not had Modestman, you should, and you will soon.
Just to put the beers into context and provide a personal side...I buy at least one or two four packs of Modestman a week. Seriously. Just take a look at how cloudy and deliciously citrusy this one looks.
Perhaps I should mention that it is not just me who loves Modestman. After all, New Hampshire Magazine named Modestman "Best of NH 2022 winner in the Readers’ Poll for Best Brewery Monadnock Region." They also won in 2021.
What does all of this mean for those on the Seacoast? Well, instead of driving out west to access this incredible beer, and in replacement of the cans from select local stores, you'll soon be able to drink some of my favorite (and New Hampshire's best) beers out of the tap right here in Portsmouth, NH.
I for one am freaking out with excitement.
Here is the announcement and video at the West End Yards.
The opening date has not been set; however, the goal is to open in 2022, according to Modestman's Facebook page. I for one will be at the opening day, and perhaps every day after.
Is Portsmouth, NH, officially on the beer map? If we weren't before, I think we're about to be now.
