Dive deeply with the Maine Brew Bus and see what lies beneath the surface!

First, we will hop on the bus and head to Lone Pine Brewing CoAfter 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 late 2017, Lone Pine announced they had purchased the former Sebago Brewing brewing facility in Gorham, a move which has increased their production volume by ten-fold.

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. we’ll visit Island Dog Brewing. Island Dog Brewing was established in 2016 by Jim Denz and Tim Francis, and are now the third brewery to call South Portland home. They produce primarily Belgian and German-inspired beers (including herb and spice ales), and the company name comes from the owner’s love of rescue dogs and the sheer beauty of Coastal Maine. Jim spent time in the Army, worked as a high school teacher, and spent many years working in technology. Jim met Tim, who has experience with home brewing (in addition to a diverse background including retail, food service, and communications) at a beer festival a few years ago. Enjoy their spacious tasting room as you sip on beers infused with ingredients that you didn’t know would taste so good in beer.

At the end of the Local Pour Tour, we’ll drop you back off at Old Port Spirits and Cigars, a perfect place to pick something up to indulge in later in the night after exploring lively downtown Portland.
