Bissell Brothers was founded in December 2013 by brothers Noah and Peter Bissell, along with Noah’s college friend Seth. Their original brewery was located at the now-famous One Industrial Way.
Their first release was The Substance, a hoppy American Pale Ale that was first released in cans in January 2014 and immediately created massive demand from beer lovers.
Since those early days, they have increased their production by at least 200% a year which resulted in the 2016 move of the entire brewery to Thompson’s Point in Portland.
They now brew in a revitalized space 10 times the size of their old brewery that was built in 1904 and once served as a railcar repair location for the Maine Central Railroad.
They received a larger brewhouse during 2017 and sent their original system north to begin brewing for their second location in their hometown of Milo, Maine.
Veteran homebrewers Craig Dilger and Bill Boguski have joined forces to bring Foulmouthed Brewing to life in South Portland.
Their brewpub has been built inside a former auto and boat repair facility, and the brewery is also well designed for large scale production.
Opened in June of 2016, Foulmouthed provides a unique assortment of beers that have been crafted to pair with the food turned out from their sunny kitchen.
Learn about the origin of the name as you tour one of the most unique breweries in Maine.
Goodfire is located in East Bayside, a well-known hub within the booming craft alcohol industry of Portland. Founded by David Redding, a physician, they first poured their beers during 2017 Portland Beer Week and opened their tasting room doors shortly after.
The comfortable 4,000-square-foot space includes a separate meeting and event room. The brewing equipment was produced by Tigpro, right here in Portland.
Head brewer Gordon Jones started Goodfire off by brewing IPA’s named Prime and Waves, but has certainly branched out with fruited sours, saisons, and lagers.
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 quickly enjoyed tremendous success and popularity.
In 2018, Lone Pine moved their brewery into the former Sebago Brewing brewing facility in Gorham which has increased their production volume by ten-fold.
They have also opened a spacious new tasting room at the new site allowing them to also expand their barrel program.
Mast Landing Brewing Company was the very first brewery to locate in the City of Westbrook.
They were founded in March of 2016 by Ian Dorsey and Neil Fredrick, friends and alums of the University of Maine. They first started homebrewing together in a Freeport garage on a very small 1-barrel rig. That kit started them in off in Westbrook, but they quickly outgrew that in order to meet demand in Maine and now in Massachusetts.
Their location in a massive former tire manufacturing facility has given them plenty of space to grow. They focus on brewing beers that are often light in malt character, but fully flavorful with multiple varieties of hops.
