Great tour this weekend by the Maine Brew Bus. We visited Bissell Brothers, Goodfire and Lone Pine. Three great locations. Great guide and driver. All very knowledgable about beer and Portland.

Shea, the tour guide, was funny and really knew about the different alcohol and their process. Rick, our bus driver, was very friendly as well! All in all it was a great experience!

We went to a brewery first, then to a fermentory and finally a distillery. Each place was nice and the people were great (from Maine Brew Bus and the tour guides for each business). We just thought that for $80/person we would have more to drink at each stop. We had 4 samples at the brewery, which equals about one pint. We had 4 samples at the fermentory too. At the distillery we had a delicious craft cocktail and then a tiny sip of each of 2 different rums. It’s definitely less expensive to pick a place o go, sample their products and use a ride-share. I could have seen spending $40-50 but $80 was too much for what we experienced.

Thank you for coming on tour with us. It sounds like you had a great time on our tour and enjoyed our guide and drivers services as well as each of the stops. We understand folks can visit breweries on their own but we always try to offer something beyond just a tasting with a behind the scenes look of each stop, special attention from their staff so guests can ask more detailed questions, some stories on Portland's historical relationship with alcohol, and snacks and a gift bag as well. Thank you again for coming on tour with us and we are glad to know you enjoyed the experience. Cheers!

My husband and I recently went on our second brew bus tour to do the Malts & Mariners package (GREAT seats!). The itinerary was great- we didn’t repeat any of the stops we had previously done, and two of the stops hadn’t even been open one year - they really keep up with what’s new.
I was pregnant on this trip, and had a blast regardless - I even got a mocktail at Three of Strong. The behind-the-scenes info is even more exciting than the drinks.
We were on the tour with a man who had gone 5 times - this is definitely a fun date night to do over and over again!

Thank you for coming on tour with us! We always try to accommodate guests whether drinking is the draw of the tour or if they will not be partaking in the tasting but want to still have the behind the scene look into Portland's craft alcohol scene. We love combining other activities with our tours as well and our Malts and Mariner's tour includes tickets to see the Mariner's hockey team. Thank you for such a kind review of our tour and we hope to see you on another soon! Cheers!

We loved this, made only better by time with family. The curling was great fun, and the 2 Portland breweries we visited were terrific. Our tour guide was just the right combination of friendly and informative.

Thank you for coming on tour with us! Our Curling and Brew tour is one of our most popular tours as it combines a really fun and accessible sport with an educational tasting tour afterwards. We're glad to hear that it was a whole family affair and you all had a good time together. Hope to see you on another tour soon.
Cheers!
