BIKE YOUR WAY TO THE BEST BEER IN MAINE

Portland is a great city for biking, and for craft alcohol. And with so many craft breweries located near safe paths, Maine Beer Tours has joined forces with Summer Feet Cycling to present Bike and Brews Tours in Portland!

For 20 years, Summer Feet Cycling has been offering bicycle-based vacations in some of the most beautiful places on earth. They started and are based right here in Maine, and offer the best and broadest selection of tours in the state.

The gathering point is the home of Summer Feet Cycling: The Portland Encyclepedia on Commercial Street. This is where you will meet your guide and check out the provided bikes and helmets.

After a brief safety talk, it is time to hop on board the bikes and pedal our way as a group towards the first brewery.

Our three-mile routes mostly feature biking on mixed-use paths where no vehicles are allowed, and there is considerable biking along the ocean with scenic views out to many islands in Casco Bay.

Along the way, we will make a few stops to learn about Portland’s rich history from the Rum Riots to Prohibition.

At each stop, we will learn a little bit about each company, meet the people responsible for delivering quality craft alcohol, and sample their various products.

After biking our way to each of our stops, together we will head back to the starting point with a better understanding of Portland’s thirst for outstanding craft beer and other alcohol.
