Quick Details

Map Marker Pick Up & Drop Off Location: Old Port Spirits and Cigars

Private Charter (Per Person-up to 18 ppl) Ages 21+


We have partnered with Casco Bay Custom Charters to bring you our Brews Cruise beer and boat tours!

We will meet at Old Port Spirits and Cigars and head to the docks to meet our Captain from Casco Bay Custom Charters. They run their boats seven days a week bringing sightseeing tours, sunset cruises, private boat rentals, and more to the people of Casco Bay!

Once we are on board the historic Maine-built passenger cruiser MARIE L, we will enjoy a leisurely spin around scenic Portland Harbor. The guide will talk about our busy seaport, the fishing and lobstering industries, the lighthouses and forts visible in the harbor, as well as how the residents of the islands live.

Over the course of the cruise, your expert beer guide from The Maine Brew Bus will talk about the featured breweries and beer that is served. They will also talk about the pivotal role that Portland played in Prohibition and how we are now making up for lost time from when the 83 long years that Maine was a dry state.

After we return to tie up on Commercial Street, you are welcome to make your way back to Old Port Spirits to make additional purchases. Of course, if you would rather you can continue your exploration of lively downtown Portland!

Please note that timing may change without advance notice due to weather events and the availability of boat staff.

Food is available on the boat with advance notice and at an additional cost.
