Beverages / Beer, Wine & Spirits

Local Producers’ Astonishing Array of Spirited Offerings

The Greater Portland area is a wealth of specialty food and local beverages. You can find products made by Maine artisans and local businesses, and those made with Maine ingredients.  Shop for local beer, wine, and spirits - or visit the local breweries for tastings before your purchase.

Getting a first-hand look at the making of a local microbrew, whether Blueberry Wheat Ale or Black Fly Stout is your preferred pint, is reason enough to come to Portland. Craft beer makers and breweries are scattered around the state, and some of the most recognized names in beer can be found (and toured) right in the city.

Distilleries, too, have flourished in the region, and craft distilling has become a local tradition where spirits are infused with Maine terroir and made with traditional and forward-thinking methods. Visitors will find small batch spirits that nod to the farm-to-flask (or ground-to-glass) movement, and vodka made from Maine potatoes, a popular coif for giving or keeping. Connoisseurs will find locally produced gin and whiskey making their mark as well.

Although Maine is New England’s most northerly state, it is still quite capable of producing fine wines, thanks in part to its long coastline and moderating ocean climate. Tour a coastal vineyard, farm, or winery and bring home a bottle is a must; visitors will find tasting rooms, back road wineries, and barns around the region where vintners welcome guests. Expect wines made from Maine wild blueberries and local grapes, and indulge in samples of everything from dandelion wine to rough-cut cider or locally-heralded mead.
