Brewery tasting rooms have proliferated in Maine in recent years thanks to the craft beer boom and some beneficial changes to state beer laws. From Kittery to Orono to Monhegan Island, breweries are offering up tastes and growler fills of just about any style of beer imaginable. Some of these operations have large spaces and a wide array of tap choices; others are roughly the size of a closet, with only a couple brews to showcase. Read on to find out all the important details.
This list omits brew pubs, which are featured in a separate map. Please note: State law stipulates that a brewery can only fill its own branded growlers, which require a fee but can be refilled on subsequent visits. Also, tasting room hours and tour times are subject to change, so it's wise to click through to a brewery's website or call before visiting.
Updates to the map for Winter 2017 include Dirigo Brewing Company in Biddeford, Flight Deck Brewing in Brunswick, Saco River Brewing in Fryeburg, Threshers Brewing Company in Searsmont, and Marsh Island Brewing Company in Orono.
