Tod Mott Joins Portsmouth Brewery

While much of New England s attention is focused on the Red Sox and their off-season dealings, the Portsmouth Brewery has signed Tod Mott on board to head up its brewing operations. “Having Tod join our staff is the brewpub equivalent of Curt Schilling signing on with the Sox,” says brewery founder Peter Egelston. Since his days as an apprentice at Vermont’s Catamount Brewery, Mott’s career has included stints as head brewer at Boston’s Harpoon, Commonwealth, and Back Bay Breweries, Quincy Ships in Quincy, and most recently at the newly opened Tap Brewpub in Haverhill.
