About The Growler Bus
Our Guided Tours provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look, including samples at Craft Alcohol producers in the Bangor and Mid-Coast areas of Maine. Growler Bus Tours are all inclusive and lead by our professional driver/guides that will bring you through tours and samples at each scheduled stop. Have you ever wondered what the inside of the brewery looks like? Why some beers are canned and some bottled? What is a hop? What is malt? How does yeast work? Infinite questions, all begging answers. What better way to have them answered than from the brewers themselves? Learn about styles, recipe development and more when you get behind the scenes in some of Maine’s best breweries. Our Party Bus Limo-Style service is an awesome way to hang with friends for a night. Our professional drivers provide safe and reliable transportation for whatever adventure you may choose. Hosting a birthday or a bachelor(ette) party? This is a great way to roll. Just a group of friends that wants to bar/brewery hop?

My friends and I did a growler bus tour to celebrate my 40th. The entire day was a blast. Chris and Andy did an amazing job coordinating our stops and transporting us safely around the area. They were knowledgeable about beer and brewing and welcomed questions. I enjoyed that they were engaged and interactive throughout the day. It’s clear they have established many wonderful relationships with local breweries. There was plenty of water and snacks on board and we were able to play our favorite music. This is going to be an annual outing now!!

Great way to spend a day. We went to 3 brewery’s, Orono Brewing Company, Bissell Brothers Three Rivers, and Bangor Brewing Company. Each brewery treated us to samples and a review of their brewing process. Chris and Andy were fantastic hosts and drivers! Can’t wait to do it again!

Chris was our guide! He was so accommodating, fun and knowledgeable about brewing and each brewery! The bus was comfortable and there were snacks and bottled water. We went to several breweries and sampled many interesting brews! This is educational, relaxing and fun! (Orono Brewing was my favorite!)

We rented the entire bus for a send off for a co-worker. It was a really fun time, we visited 3 breweries and enjoyed a tour as well as several samples at each place. Plan on a cab, this is a pretty alcohol intensive tour. Unless you don’t finish your samples, but, really, isn’t that what you came for? The Orono Brewery was a pretty young crowd (which really wasn’t us), but we were kind of behind the scenes anyway. Loved Bangor Beer co & Masons! Highly recommend this fun way to check out some local brews.
