The Maine Brew Bus is now in the fifth year of partnering with the Portland Sea Dogs, the Double-A affiliate of the World Champion Boston Red Sox, to present a special Sips and Sea Dogs tour before select home games during the 2019 season. This unique tour and ticket combination is available before every Friday game, as well as before each Thursday evening game this season. In addition, we are also offering this combination before the Portland Sea Dogs Baseball and Brews event in June.
Details: The Sips and Sea Dogs tour will leave from Hadlock Field in Portland at 3:00 pm for 6:00 pm game starts, and at 4:00 pm for 7:00 pm game starts. The tour will bring guests to three local breweries, distilleries and/or wineries. Participants will learn about each business, meet owners and staff, take brief tours (if available), and have an opportunity to sample their craft alcohol products. The tour will arrive back at Hadlock Field approximately 30 minutes before scheduled game time.
Tours will happen rain or shine and will not be canceled or refunded if that night’s game is already postponed. If the game on the Sips and Sea Dogs tour date becomes part of a doubleheader due to previously rescheduled games, we will still be maintaining the original timetable with tour departure and arrival schedule as published. If a game is postponed while the tour is underway, guests will receive a raincheck for a future game.
Tickets include the guided tour, transportation, bottled water, a Maine Brew Bus souvenir bag, gratuities at each stop, as well as a Portland Sea Dogs reserved game ticket for each guest. Guests will also receive a 20% discount coupon for Portland Sea Dogs merchandise that can be redeemed in the Team Store. All guests must be at least 21 years of age at the time of the tour.
Pickup and drop off will be at the Hadlock Field main entrance near the Slugger the Sea Dog statue, but all guests will be instructed in advance on where to and where not to park for the duration of the tour and game. Guests purchasing alcohol for later consumption will be able to leave their purchases secured in the team general offices for the duration of the game.
Price: Tickets for the Sips and Sea Dogs tour are available at two different levels:
All You Can Eat (AYCE) Seats
$85 per person for seating in Section 501/502, a pavilion section located in right field. These seats, modeled after the “Monster Seats” at Fenway Park, are some of the most unique in Minor League Baseball. They provide countertop seating and offer the only place in the ballpark to catch a home run ball. They also provide all-you-can-eat food available until one hour after the scheduled game start time. The options include hot dogs, hamburgers, pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches, coleslaw, baked beans, Sea Dog Biscuits, and soft drinks. (Note: This section is not available for games in April or May)
Reserved Box Seats
$70 per person for a box seat in section 202, located on the first base line and close to the most concessions that include local craft beer.
The Sips and Sea Dogs tour is also available as a private group tour and may be scheduled on other game dates. If you are looking for a unique outing with your friends, family, or colleagues this summer, give us a call to discuss a private Sips and Sea Dogs tour!
