The Beer at Alantic has improved immensely over the years. Their Coffee Stout is as tasty as Founders Breakfast stout and their Real Ale is a nice dark ale with hops and a malty taste with a beautiful head. They do not have food however right beside the brewery there is Mainely BBQ which has some of the best ribs... More

You can pop in and pickup some beer to go or stop for a quick tasting when it's rainy out. It's quite small and can get crowded at times. No food served here - beer and rootbeer are what you'll find. IPA is pretty good and rootbeer is delicious.

We walked in to taste a few of their beers and see what their little store had to offer. When we walked in, there was a very formal and fancy tasting happening. There was another employee behind the register (separate from the bar area and the gentleman talking about the beers) and he didn't even look up or ask if... More

The tour itself was short, didn't see much, but it was free and we did learn about the history of Atlantic Brewing and got free samples of their different beers. Recommend having a bite at Mainly Meats next door.

What better way to spend some time on a rainy day then at a microbrewery. We attended the free beer tasting at the Atlantic Brewing Company where we sampled five brews: leaf peeping, blueberry ale, coal porter, Ellen's coffee stout and the 2x 04609 ipa. I liked the first two, but I'm not much of a beer drinker. My husband... More

They had mainely meats on property for lunch and their beer on tap. My husband and I both got the pulled pork sandwich, generous helping of delicious pork. We opted for the walk-in tasting which was in the main building. Their beers were very well crafted, we were able to taste each one, including the small batch brews. We had... More

Free! The tour guide knows her stuff, answers questions readily and is quite friendly. After the tour, we got to sample six of their products and/or the two sodas they make. All the adult beverages are ales, si pilsner people, be prepared

Wanted to get away from busy congested downtown Bar Harbor so drove about 20 minutes outside of town to this small brewery. In a leafy cool rural setting, there are picnic tables to sit and sip, an indoor BBQ restaurant with tables,and a bar. We took a brief group guided tour of the brewery, then in the tasting room, were... More

Atlantic Brewery – Microbrewery a very short distance outside of Bar Harbor on Knox Road. They also have a ‘tasting room’ in downtown Bar Harbor. At the brewery location (where we went) all tastings were free and delicious…especially the blueberry variety. They also make blueberry and root beer soda. Gift shop on location for souvenirs, tshirts, hats, etc. and their... More

On a cloudy afternoon we decided to try this small local brewery a few miles outside Bar Harbor. After a brief brewery tour we tried several of their beers all quite good. The best was their Coal Porter. All their beers available along with nice beer glasses and t-shirts in their gift shop.
