After solidifying itself as a favorite on the Pacific Coast in Seattle, Redhook Ale Brewery opened a new location in Portsmouth in 1996. Along with the bold taste of their dozen-or-so craft beers, these guys brought along their funky taste in music, which they show off each year at the Redhook Fest. Past performers include national bands and artists including OAR, Keller Williams, and the Dandy Warhols. This year, the 14th annual Redhook Fest will be held on July 24 and headlined by Blues Traveler. Tickets are available online ($20) or at the gate ($30).
