Great Fun! February 4, 2020

The Maine Brew Bus is definitely a "not to disappoint" adventure!!! We did the Saturday Brunch Tour. Had a fun time and loved experiencing 3 different craft breweries. The staff at all the breweries were welcoming and each had it's own story to tell, sharing their defeats, victories, lessons in beer making and their future goals! Our guides, Victoria and Ryan, were the best, knowledgeable, fun and engaging! Thank you. We'll be back to experience some of your other tours!

Fun Time

My husband and I went on the Brew Bus tour and had a good time. I am not a beer drinker but tasted all the beers. The best one was a blueberry beer. The tour guide and driver were knowledgeable and very friendly.

Walk, Talk and Taste beer tour

We had a great time tasting unique beers at 3 breweries. We learned a lot from our informative and enjoyable tour guide, Alan! If you’re able to walk, why take a bus tour? Portland is so walkable. Highly recommend this tour and highly recommend Alan!

Best beer tour

Allen and Ryan were excellent guides. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. Funny too. We also never felt rushed at any of the breweries. You have to book this tour if you love beer. Also would be great if you didn’t know much about beer.
