The place is jammed most every day so don't be in a hurry and the tasting room is the place to start. The beer is fresh and extremely tasty and there is no doubt that you could find your next favorite brew right here in Freeport. In warmer months there is a barbecue outside that has smokin' [no pun intended]... More

MBC offers fantastic beer. I'd tried some of their beers which are distributed in Whole Foods and probably a few other grocery stores and always found the quality of the product excellent. Set in a simple tasting room overlooking the fermentation tanks, the setting is great. Would be nice if MBC offered some food options like a cheese plate or... More

Maine beer company is hands down my favorite brewery. My first visit I was skeptical because we waited in line for 3hrs for the dinner release. I was blown away, I almost wanted to hate on it but couldn't. I've been back 3 times since and have always been happy with the visit. The have a wholesome family feel that... More

I've wanted to go to the Maine Beer Company since they did a collaboration with a local beer company here in So Cal and I was not disappointed! It was a great place to go on an autumn rainy day, though there was basically standing room only (Saturday). There is overflow seating outside under a large tent with space heaters.... More

"Do What'a Right" is their mantra and they do just that their beer and eco-friendly footprint. The first thing you will notice is the large solar panels out front. The second thing is their no tipping policy with all tips going to one of 5 charities that you can choose. But the main draw here is the beer. They are... More

Love it, Wednesday night with Lunch and a pizza. Not cheap but worth the stop or visit. We sat inside and the pizza was delivered from the outdoor area to our table. After we ate we were able to easily buy a case of bottles to go. Great merchandise available to buy.

Stayed over Night In Freeport and our hotel was not great. it was an Econo lodge. But it happened to be right next to this brewery. It was amazing. We had a flight of 8 to try. The people working there were friendly and helpful. Also we talked with some of the customers and had some nice chats while we... More

I planned my brother's bachelor party around this brewery because it is his favorite beer. It was just what we expected. Great time. Great service. Great beer. All the beers are wonderful. All the beers are good, but you must try Lunch. Unfortunately, most people (especially those who live far away) will never get a chance to try Dinner.

MBC does it right. Period. Incredible selection of beer and the atmosphere is very chill. If you can get Dinner all the better.

Maine Beer company has the best beer in Maine. Another one, lunch, Dinner all exceptional. The only problem is the $7 to $8 a pint price tag. For the price of a 12 pack I can get a case of Bissell Brothers or Heady Topper that matter. MBC should consider selling 4 packs and lower the price point.. Again the... More
