Housed in an old plumbing warehouse in Portsmouth, New Hampshire’s up and coming West End, Liars Bench Beer Co. is an independently owned nano-brewery, tap room and biergarten. Founded in 2016, by UNH college roommates Dane Nielsen & Dagan Migirditch, Liars Bench offers an ever-rotating selection of intentionally brewed, traditionally inspired ales and lagers, as well as a playful menu built for the beer drinker and their brethren. With its inviting atmosphere and communal tables, drinkers are encouraged to tell stories but not necessarily the truth. Here’s to empty lies, come share one.

    Such a chill little spot to go and hang out. The food was delicious and had a nice variety of options, even with a smaller menu. Maybe eight different possible brews (from IPAs to Pale Ales and many others) that we’re both on draft and could be enjoyed in a can. Clean bathrooms. Tentative crew. I’ll be back.

    The beer was great, but I thought that the vibe was off. There were at least 3 bartenders and not that many customers, but they all seemed rushed. Biggest issue was that my falafel was whack. It was basically liquid on the inside. I would’ve sent it back if I hadn’t been so hungry

    Great beers, fair prices and a nice beer garden outside for good days.

    Excellent craft beer. I just had a saison w/ cabernet grapes. Hard to find craft strains like this around here. The vibe is chill and friendly. Plenty of outdoor seating. Heaters for the cold evenings. Love it!!

    Everything about this place is well done. Starting with the beer which included the best double IPA and kolsch I've had recently. We really enjoyed the snacks and food, which pleased everyone in our group from 6 to 66. The layout is great with nice sized indoor and outdoor spaces. And the staff was very friendly, moving space heaters around so we could eat outside on a mild December day. I hope to return the next time I'm in the area.
