Breweries & Distillery Tours

Craft Beer and Potato Vodka are just a couple of local favorites

Talk with brewmasters, taste small batch ales and lagers, tour Maine’s first post-prohibition brew pub. Interesting, fun and convivial, brewery and distillery tours are a welcome requirement on every visitor’s itinerary that combines a taste of foodie culture with the city’s rich beer and spirit history.

Craft breweries and distilleries flourish in Portland, each adding their own flavor to the city, and tours allow visitors to experience local mainstays as well as some new arrivals. Those interested in craft beer culture can do so by taking one of the city’s popular "brew” buses where knowledgeable guides provide the stops, and local breweries and distilleries provide the tastings and behind-the-scenes activity.

Learn about hops, discern ale from lager, view the bottling line, and sample seasonal ales and shop the gift stores. Area distilleries will enhance visitors’ understanding of the flask-to-table movement, provide an opportunity to see how spirits like gin, rum and mead are made and inform guests about how local crops like potatoes and wild blueberries play a role in the vodka making process. Beer lovers will also discover the city’s nanobreweries, the talk of craft brew culture, where tiny scale brewing in Portland is making a tasty claim on the craft beer community.
