Welcome to the Team: Greg Klein
December 26, 2017
Our new Group Sales Coordinator came from our driver and guide ranks and brought a trainload of outside skills and experience to our team. Learn more now about Greg Klein in his own words.
I was born in the Bronx, New York and grew up in Manhattan as well as northern New Jersey before moving to Maine with my family in the early 90’s. I went to junior high and high school in Brunswick then on to the University of Maine to study theater.
I continued on to work professionally in the entertainment industry in Maine for over a decade doing production equipment rentals, sales, and support for local, national and international clients.
As my career continued I realize just what a wonderful place Maine is to live and work. I also got involved with the Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway Museum in Alna Maine and quickly became a life member, rebuilding the history of this 2-foot narrow gauge railroad which had its last revenue train in 1933.

It doesn’t matter your age, a live steam locomotive will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Maine sure has a lot of hidden gems if you look hard enough! I soon decided to further my education and pursue a degree in tourism and hospitality through the University of Southern Maine.
I started working for The Maine Brew Bus in May of 2017. I began driving and shortly after, guiding tours around Portland. It was at this point that I started looking for a way to change career paths and find a route that would allow me to continue school. (You can only take so many online classes before you have to get your hands dirty in a classroom)
Needless to say, the search wasn’t long and I saw an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
There are moments when I am still surprised at the timing as well as my fortune to be the new Group Sales Coordinator with The Maine Brew Bus. I am excited to bring my skills and work experience to this business and to help the company grow as well as myself.
I love the beer scene in Portland and in Maine at large. I make the occasional mess at home with my own home brew but it doesn’t come close to the fine offerings we can get just a short drive from our door.
Find out for yourself by working with me to book a tour for your family, friends, or co-workers!
