November 6, 2023

Mark your calendars for Monday, November 6, 2023 to kick off the start of 207 Beer Week. In a tour-vs-tour faceoff, Portland’s finest craft brewers are set to clash in the ultimate battle of the taps. And remember, every sip counts! Cheer on your favorite brewer for the esteemed MVB (Most Victorious Brewer) title.

Each contender, grouped by their respective Maine Brews Cruise tours, enters with just one sixtel or its equivalent. With every pint you guzzle, you cast your ‘vote’. Keep an eye on the Beer Hub screens to watch the “votes” pile up in real-time. And hey, if your chosen brewer seems to be lagging? It might be time for a refill.

The whistle blows at 9:00 PM sharp, and by 9:30 PM, we’ll know who’s the top dog in each tour!
Who will emerge victorious, and who will drown in their suds? Which brand will strut with the coveted title of being Portland’s finest? And out of them all, who will be bestowed with the grand MVB title?
