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.

According to the Modesman Brewing website, "We work within the trends of the industry without compromising our identity and integrity," said owner Ash Sheehan. "We appreciate European style brewing and respect old world traditions."

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.

Nearly all of the beers (specifically the IPAs) that Ash and Modestman Brewing produce have an incredible aroma, wonderfully fruity tastes and citrus nodes, and often a nice haze or cloudiness. The Brewery does offer all kinds of beers, from IPAs to sours and even Kolschs. Below is one of my favorites, a NEIPA called the Stimulus Plan.

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, very soon you will be able to drink some of my favorite (and New Hampshire's best) beers out of the tap right here in Portsmouth, NH.

That's right, Modestman is expanding into the West End Yards complex on Route 1.

I for one am freaking out with excitement.

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 West End Yards larger structure.

That is a pretty big space for a nano-brewery...super exciting.

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 not before, I think we're about to be now.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
