Itís a tap room so itís not going to have the most robust selection, but the beer was fresh, the space bright and clean, and the water was cool and clear. Plus the beer at Maine Beer is so darn tasty that itís hard not to like the place.

Came mid day on a early spring Monday looking to kill time before I could hit my hotel room and sleep. Somewhat small tasting room, but adequate for my needs. Grabbed two of the 8 beers on tap. 7 of the 8 were also in a cooler for take home brews. I Grabbed a few bottles for aforementioned hotel room, stick for the beer fridge. Solid.

Great medium-sized tap room that looks out over the brewery floor. Friendly, knowledgeable staff that are pouring 8 taps of top-quality MBC beer (although Dinner wonít be on unless it was released that day!). Thereís beer to go on the side wall with a pretty impressive selection of their brews. It can get crowded pretty quickly, but itís worth sticking around and finding a seat.

Maine Beer Co is nice and easy to get to from Portland by car. It just a 20 minute drive from town, although we did detour via the rather delicious Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster Company for food first. Our visit was on Tuesday afternoon, so it was relatively quiet instead. Although small the tap room is bright, clean and quite open. You can look straight into the brewery through a window. They had 8 beers on tap during our visit. The highlights were lunch and Adopted Bastard. The had some merch and about 5 different bottles to takeway. Not a huge selection, but the beer is of excellent quality. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. A pleasant tap room with some rather delicious beer.

Small tap room featuring 8 beers. They donít have food aside from Pretzels, but those pretzels (and especially the mustard) were damn good. Food truck outside, but didnít get anything. Maine Beer Co. is my favorite brewery so I was very happy. A little sad they didnít have Dinner there, but they produce great stuff. Pretty cool merch as wel.

The beer is obviously awesome, but the actual place is also very nice. A good tap selection and plenty of chilled bottles to go. Excellent pretzels inside and great crepes served in the food truck outside.

I was here during their Dinner release. These was just mere coincidence, as I had no intention of picking up a case of an insanely good, and attempting to fly it back to Seattle. With that, I can say that they did a great job of managing their release. How do I know? I was talking about the process with the guy blocking the front of the building. Basically, they closed off the tasting room during this time, which I thought was a good idea so they could keep the release running smoothly. Anyways, my wife and I ended up killing some time along the coast, and headed back, after the release. The ambiance was decent - very open, airy, and as the rater below me said "farmhousey". Thereís not much going on in here, other than a view to the brewery and people hanging out. Thereís a cooler for to-go bottles. Draughts were fine, as they did have Dinner, on draught, and fuck, that is a mighty good beer, but they didnít have a single thing that I couldnít find in stores, including older bottles of Dinner. Thereís nothing to experience here, and really, itís not in a remote location, so even with a "farmhousey" feel, it just doesnít have a lot of uniqueness. I think this place is rather mediocre, even though their beers are exceptional. This place is worth a stop if, and only if, you have nothing else on your schedule. Otherwise, just enjoy the fresh bottles you can easily find in stores. Oh yes, thereís no food available.

Nice place. Farmhousey vibe in the tasting room with a nice view of the brewery below. Half liter bottles available at solid prices, 5 ounce samples for $2.50 each. Most beers at my visit I had already tried with one pilot batch beer which was pretty solid. Prices OK, plenty of parking and nice staff. These people make great beer. Maybe donít expect a lot of ticks, but still worth a stop.

Great brewery with a fantastic set of flight options. This is a small secret of Maine. Delcious beers. Nice people. Great atmosphere.

No tours or growlers. Extremely clean outside and tasting room. Windows in the tasting from let you see the workings of the brewery. We got the "all-in" flight - 5oz pours of all 8 beers on tap for $18. Sleek, modern style with shirts, hats, glassware, and bottles for sale. The service was exceptional. The woman at the bar played with our kids and set them up with paper and crayons.
