The Best 5: Local BreweriesNamed for Smuttynose Island, this maker produces year-round and seasonal beers that are sold up and down the East Coast and into the Midwest, plus a selection of limited-release brews for local markets. Best brew: “Finestkind IPA,” a generously hopped India pale ale and, in my opinion, the single best beer brewed in New England. Portsmouth and Hampton, NH.
