The atmosphere was neat. It looks like an old style New England Barn on the outside. When you go in it is more of a modern feel. You can watch the beer making process through the window. I was a little disappointed that they did not have Lunch in the bottle (sold out). But they did have it on tap. The prices were kind of high.

Definitely a good place to stop. Went here to buy Maine Dinner, and that beer is phenomenal.

Never disappointed with any of their products, never less than solid, many exceptional. Lunch and Dinner are among my favorite beers.

Great place and great beer. I visited on a Saturday and must have been of like mind with many others ... the place was packed! Tried several beers and all were very good to great. This place would be even more enjoyable with more space! As with many tasting rooms in New England, it almost feels like an afterthought.

Service was quick and understandably impersonal. There are a few tables, a nice window into brewhouse, and the place is spotlessly clean. Definitely a worthy visit.

I've had the pleasure of trying each and every one of their beers and the stuff coming out of Maine Beer Co is nothing short of outstanding.

First: the beer. MBC makes some fantastic hop-forward beers, each of which has a profile (between the malt and the water) quite unique. MBC brews are instantly identifiable, and more importantly, delicious.

Second: the brewery. The facilities are relatively small, but the staff is very friendly and open. They've got long communal tables for the samples (no food), which you can get as a flight of 4 or a flight of 8. You can get a decent selection of their beer on the premises, including very limited brews (oddly, no growlers). There is also a corner with some childrens' games and books, which is great for family trips to the brewery.

The main room has an open window looking into the brewery itself, so if you can't get a tour, at least you can see their operation.

If you're near the area, there's no reason not to swing by MBC for a visit.
