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!

Three stops, with 4-7 beers per stop. Our tour lasted 3.5 hours. Good beer. The snack between stop 2 and 3 was a good idea. Our guide was a bit too chatty, but very informative.

It all depends on the tour. Our shortest is about 3 hours, our longest is closer to 5. They average about 4 hours, though. Hope that helps!

Yes, absolutely. Our usual pickup/dropoff location is just down the street, so that is easy, definitely.
