Maine is a haven for craft beer, and what better way to enjoy the Maine...

Maine is a haven for craft beer, and what better way to enjoy the Maine beer experience than to have us bring you to where the magic happens!

Have you ever wondered how a beer gets bottled or canned? What the difference between an Ale and a Lager is? Why some beers are darker than others and what exactly is a hop? Wonder no more!

Maine Beer Tours offers an ALL INCLUSIVE brewery tour experience. While on the bus we will be sure to give you some of the rich beer history in Maine, and even toss some goodies at you, by way of some trivia. At Maine Beer Tours, we feel the appreciation for Maine craft beverages brings strangers together who quickly realize and appreciate all of Maine's offerings as well as the other patrons they engage with on board. That being said, it is not uncommon to see folks on our tours start as strangers and end up grabbing food and drink together after the tour has ended.

Maine Beer Tours has been connecting beer enthusiasts to the source since August 2012 (though inception began nine years prior to that) when no other Maine business was offering the same service. It has been a wild ride and we've met a lot of great people along the way. So what are you waiting for? Hop on board Maine's original, homegrown, beer tour bus and lets us do the driving for you!

We took the Sunday Brunch Tour a few weeks ago. The bus was late, it came around 11:15, so we weren't sure if we were in the right spot. It would be nice to have a sign or something signifying where we should have met. The tour overall was great. The owner was driving the bus and very personable. Our... More

An excellent way to spend a Sunday! We visited 4 small, hand crafted breweries in a about 3.5 hours. All of the stops were impressive and the sampling ample. We tasted a minimum of 3 beers at each location. No one on this tour can say that beer is boring! For some reason I had understood or envisioned thus tour... More

A group of 12 of my friends did the Saturday Hoppy Hour for a bachelor party. The tours were great, and the beer was good, but I felt like the staff was annoyed with us from the very beginning. They were friendly and accommodating, but certainly didn't seem like they enjoyed having our group. I've read many great reviews raving... More
