This tour was a highlight of our trip! We did the East Bayside Tour on a Saturday afternoon. Victoria was awesome! She was knowledgeable and made the information easy to understand and fun. And added bonus was getting to go right into the breweries and drink when every place we went seemed to have long lines and waits for everyone else. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Portland!

We booked a private tour and it was well worth it! It was so much fun and our tour guide Don was so knowledgeable and really made it that much more enjoyable. We had booked the tour in June for late October for a 30th birthday surprise, hoping the corona virus would be a distant memory but unfortunately had not eased up yet. The Maine Brew Bus took all the precautions in keeping us and those around us safe, while also making sure it did not effect the experience we had. We really had a great time and I would highly recommend doing one of their many tours.

We had a great time on this tour! We walked to 3 breweries while getting a history lesson of Portland on our way to each brewery. Because of Covid, masks must be worn the whole time(besides when you are drinking). I felt like they did a very respectful job of mandating the pandemic rules while still having a fun time. I would definitely recommend this for beer drinkers and history fans. Also we only walked about 1.5 miles, it was very comfortable.

Great time! We took the old port walking tour, Don was very friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable about beer and local Maine and Portland history. The breweries were very accommodating and friendly, and most importantly the beer was delish! Would def reccomend.
