The Essential Guide to Maine Brewery Tasting Rooms maps out where to grab a fresh draft straight from the source at dozens of Maine breweries. Let's not forget the brew pubs, though. These places offer a full food menu to accompany their house-brewed pours. From Eliot to The Forks, Sugarloaf Mountain to Belfast Bay, some focus on burgers and pale ales, while others venture toward Belgian tripels and entrees that would be right at home on a fine dining menu. Many also offer growler fills or bottles to take home.
This list omits brewery tasting rooms, 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, brew pub hours and beer availability are subject to change, so it's wise to click through to a brewery's website or call before visiting. If we screwed up the details of a venue featured here, or missed a valid location, please let us know and we'll do our best to update.Read More
