About Maine Brews Cruise
Maine Brews Cruise was initially founded as The Maine Brew Bus in September 2012 by husband-and-wife Zach and Allison Poole. Our all-inclusive tours and experiences provide guests a behind-the-scenes look at Maine’s craft breweries, distilleries, wineries, and more. Tour guests enjoy having an expert guide, and often a dedicated driver, to lead them to both established and up-and-coming producers. This offers an opportunity to learn much more about the craft alcohol business than they could learn on their own. Over 35,000 people have been connected to Maine’s craft alcohol producers since our tours began almost 10 years ago. In early 2020, we announced that we had acquired a majority share of Brews Cruise, Inc., a company that licenses and supports craft beverage tour operators around the United States. In April 2021, the brand-new Maine Brews Cruise brand aligned our company with the national Brews Cruise presence.

Very fun and informative tour. We had a great tour guide and visited a Mead distillery, Lone Pine Brewery and Three Parts Strong Rum Distillery. They were all fantastic. We loved each of the facilities and had the opportunity to taste a variety from each one.We also learned about the making of each type of alcohol. We met some nice people who were on the tour with us as well.

The tour was great but could not give this 5 stars due to a few things. The “local snack” that was supposed to be priced be provided as part of the package was just a bag of chips. My son had to have emergency surgery and they were not willing to refund or even partially refund my ticket. My advice to anyone purchasing is to get the insurance because when they say all sales are final they mean it.

We highly recommend taking the Maine Brews Cruise if you have interest in learning about the local craft beer scene. We toured three breweries during this tour. At each location we learned about their history, brewing process, and how they set themselves apart. One of our stops, Belleflower Brewing Company, one of the owners spent time with us to provide these details. It was great to have this inside look and the passion behind the product. We went away with so much knowledge and understanding of the passion leading to a growing craft brewery industry. We also of course enjoyed many delicious brews.
