Brewery Description:

Our company is named for Smuttynose Island, the third largest of the nine islands that comprise the Isles of Shoals, a small, rocky archipelago that lies seven miles off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. The name appears on nautical charts going back as far as the seventeenth century, so its true origins are lost to time. Prior to the arrival of Smuttynose Brewing, the island was best known for a brutal double axe murder that occurred there in 1873.

Smuttynose was founded in January, 1994. It released its first beer, Shoals Pale Ale, in July of that year, followed shortly thereafter by Old Brown Dog.
