Seth and Mitch were exceptional tour guides. The were very personable, had great senses of humor, and were a great addition to the experience. The selection of places on the tour couldn't have been better, I highly reccomend the Beast of the yEast tour.

Loved Fore River Brewing!!! We also visited MAINE MEADE WORKS, which wasn’t for me but was still cool to try, as well as Bunker Brewing.

Awesome tour! The beer was delicious and the guides were sweet and fun. Made us feel very welcome and appreciated. Good brewery locations, and we got to try a lot of different, interesting brews. The quiche snack was very yummy as well.

It was pretty fun but I am not really sure the tour is worth 70$. I would say if you have the time to go to all the breweries yourself then do that. If you are looking for convenience then choose this option

All of the tours go 3+ hours since you see 3 breweries and there's some drive time. Their website says 5 to 8:15 which makes sense.

It's right down Commercial Street near the dock area. Unless you have some physical limitations it should be within easy walking distance.
