Dive deeply with the Maine Brew Bus and see what lies beneath the surface! We’ll hop in the bus and head to Portland’s Lone Pine Brewing Co. After working in the retail side of beer for over a decade, Tom Madden decided that the time was right to break into producing his own beer. A long-time home brewer and Certified Cicerone, he reconnected with his longtime friend John Paul who had been working in the music industry in California. Together, they opened Lone Pine in March of 2016 in a former countertop production space in Portland’s East Bayside, and they are churning out American-style Pale and Wheat Ales for retail sale and enjoyment in their elevated tasting room.
Next stop is Cellardoor Winery at The Point. In 2007, Bettina Doulton bought Cellardoor Winery of Lincolnville, ME. Once she visited Lincolnville in December 2006, and saw the 68-acre, 200-year-old farm that featured a 1790s post-and-beam barn and old farmhouse, as well a state-of-the-art winery across the road, it was a done deal. Cellardoor at the Point is a 5,000 square foot tasting room and event space to tell their story to a larger audience and to pour their award-winning wines in a repurposed space that features a large horseshoe public tasting bar, a smaller private bar that can be reserved for groups, and a large event space suitable for bigger gatherings.
Last but not least is Bunker Brewing Company. Originally based in a tiny, brick-walled former scrapyard building in East Bayside, Bunker Brewing Company has moved to a much larger former warehouse on the West side of town. Their creative brewers make a rotating assortment of ales and lagers, making this the perfect stop during which to ask the question, “What’s the difference between an ale and a lager?” Enjoy their spacious tasting room and outside patio while pondering that important question over a well-crafted Bunker beer.
At the end of the Local Pour Tour, we’ll drop you back off at Old Port Spirits, a perfect place to pick something up to indulge in later in the night.
