Everyone below me has written perfectly what it’s like visiting this spot. I do however wish that their social media presence was a little more conspicuous and frequent. That’s chump criticism, in all honesty. Located awkwardly off the highway, its position is slanted downward on a concealed hillside. Bar-hands were either hurriedly friendly and helpful or a massive pain in the ass to deal with. I refuse to drop in during special releases as that usually means I’ll be stuck in an unmoving line all bleeding day. Worth checking out. They tend to have really neat food trucks, as well.

Second time visiting this place, first was three years ago and I’ve still yet to get through my place rating backlog, so going at it again. Gorgeous clean white open feeling space in this small to medium sized taproom. 8 beers on tap, with very reasonable pour prices. All 8 as 5oz pours for 18, singles for 2.5. Not really crowded at 11am on a Friday when they opened, but there were about 10-15 of waiting to get inside, so their popularity is certainly a thing. A few of those were just picking up bottles and leaving, but most stayed and had beers. Big tables allow communal seating for about 30 people, and there are some games (Jenga, Connect 4, Stratego, etc) hanging out to play with your friends. Snacks are available, as well as enormous pretzels for $5, and there’s a pizza truck outside. Beers here are excellent, though if you’re not a fan of hoppy things this may not be the place for you. 7 of the beers on were IPA or IPL, and the 8th was a wheat, that was lightly hoppy as well. Given that they’ve got a few stouts in their regular lineup, this could have just been an anomaly. Either way, go here. There’s also beers to go, at $5-7 per 500ml bottle, which is probably $2 cheaper than I see them at home, and likely a bit fresher. And there’s some things that aren’t on tap. Very much worth the stop.

Efficient and sterile with indifferent service, but the selection of beers in tap and for sale make this a good stop.

Located next to an econo-lodge, good place to stay for any Dinner pick ups. Decor is simply wooden bar table with register, floors, and approximately three large coolers with beer. Another wall lined with beers in cases. Indoor windows overlooking the brewing area on the floor below. Outdoor patio also to picnic however I am unsure if you can drink outside. Value is a ten as you can’t get these beers for any cheaper. The selection is obviously excellent if you’re looking for Maine Beer Company beers.

Visited February 2016. Very beautiful place and I like their enviromental theme. Very nice view to brewery also from taproom. They had 8 beers on tap and flight of four was available. Also some bottles to go. Beers were excellent. One of my favorite breweries.

After having been a fan of their beers for years, this is kind of exactly what I would have expected their tap room to be like. Minimalist and clean. Has 8 beers on tap, and they were all hop forward. Big window into the production area is about as close to a tour as they seem to have. Lots of enegry efficiency / environmentally friendly stuff going on. Bottles to go of some of their beers. In addition to the tap room arean, they had a food truck outside and a nice outdoor drinking / eating area out there too, which I would venture to guess is seasonal.

Great little brewpub with great service and price for the "All In" flight, which featured all 8 beers they had on tap. The selection this time around was full of IPAs, considering the time of year, but some variation in color on my flight tray would have been nice. Still, friendly staff and great service make this a place to visit.

This place was pretty nice. Nice upscale indoor area and an awesome looking outdoor section. The tables were granite topped and nice. The staff was very friendly and will definitely talk and be polite and offer suggestions. It’s pretty awesome. The beer selection wasn’t the best. 8 beers on, all pale ales or IPAs. Wish there was something a little different to break up the monotony. The value was excellent. $18 for all 8 in a flight? I’m going all in! I’d definitely come back here, this place was awesome.

It’s a tap room so it’s 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 it’s hard not to like the place.
