Maine's Best Happy Hours, From the Readers

View as Map

A few weeks back, there was an Open Thread where readers were asked to weigh in on the best Happy Hours in Maine. Responses came in in the comments, via email and on Facebook, telling us about the best deals around. Whether it's cheap beer, half-priced wine, bargain cocktails or free food, the following map provides a guide to the places readers most love to retreat to after a long day at the office. To wrap up Eater Cocktail Week 2013, check out the map and chose a spot to hit up this afternoon. These Happy Hours begin soon. Or, in the case of Petite Jacqueline, it's already been going for over an hour. (The list is in no particular order.)

Forget to weigh in the first time? Let us know if we missed a great Happy Hour spot by telling us about it in the comments or emailing the tipline.
