Corporate and Industry Tours
Are you and your colleagues ready for a fun adventure with us on the bus?
Nobody wants the same old office party when it’s time to get the team together,
Maybe your group is looking for a year-end celebration, a unique team-building event, a fun retirement party, or a way to unwind after a day of meetings.
Or perhaps you are bringing some clients or vendors into town, and you’d love to show them a great time while they are here.
We’ve got a solution to make your work-related “social event” actually fun and truly memorable!
The Maine Brew Bus offers group tours for up to 50 people complete with customized pick-up and drop-off options.
We can create an experience for your company as part of staff retreats, celebration events, holiday parties, retirements, sales meetings, or for any reason.
Tour stops can be customized to fit the schedule and needs of your company, and can always include a mix of breweries, wineries, and distilleries.
Lunch, dinner, or other types of entertainment offerings are all available. We’d love to talk about the additional offerings that we have for your group.
Please check out some commonly asked questions listed below, and then fill out the form below to let us know more about your group and event.
You can expect to hear from me shortly to talk over some options for your corporate group.

The Maine Brew Bus
About this video: This group from the Boston offices of G Adventures came up to Portland on the Amtrak Downeaster train where they were picked up by the Maine Brew Bus at the train station and brought to Portland’s waterfront.
The group then transferred to a vessel from Portland Harbor Water Tours for a ride out to Cow Island and the facilities of Rippleffect. The entire team enjoyed a traditional lobster bake lunch in the middle of Casco Bay, and a chance to explore more of the island.
Back on the boat, the team enjoyed a harbor cruise before heading back to the docks in Portland. The Brew Bus team then brought them for tours at Rising Tide Brewing Company and Cellardoor Winery at the Point before dropping them off at the train station for their trip back to Boston.
We can handle organizing corporate team outings from the simple to the complex. Contact our Group Sales Coordinator today to find out more about getting your work colleagues, vendors, or clients on the bus for a corporate tour.

“The brew bus tours rated the highest of any of the tours we have EVER done! Kudos on obtaining this from a group of tough critics!! Everyone enjoyed this and thank you so much for making it all happen! I appreciate your patience and assistance in working with me to pull it all together!”
