Located about 15 minutes north of downtown Portland, it is real easy to find on northbound Rt. 1. Small tasting room overlooks brewing operations on a lower level through a glass window. Few tables and barrels fill the room. Nice beer can display is above the bar. A blackboard listed 8 beers on draft, along with pricing for bottles to go. Pretzels for sale here too. This is a great place to have some awesome beers, and worthy of the drive from Portland.

I'd give it a 5 overall except their offerings sometimes don't make it to the store. Lunch and Dinner are my favorites but Mo rates high too. The tasting room is small yet friendly and has a nice window where the magic happens.

Totally awesome place to try a flight, or two. peek through the glass into the brewery and enjoy the music on weekends. Must visit if you are in Maine! Right off the interstate too.

Went here for one of the Dinner releases, and it ran quite smoothly. Its a nice looking brewery, small, but a fine place to grab a pint. No food on site to speak of, but a solid selection of MBC beers

First road trip beer release I've been too, their set up was solid, from what I hear much improved for previous releases. Weave the line to the brewery entrance, food truck on site through the night to keep you busy. Once we got moving they were waiting for you with a case as you made your way inside, straight ahead and up the stairs right into the draft room to check out. Icing was the full flight of every beer they have on tap that day! Just not nearly enough room in there...

Friendly people and a laid back attitude drive the Maine Brewing Company. Stood in line for Dinner in Dec. 2015 - Day started at 4:30 AM where I was ~225 in line. Ticket process was smooth and they moved the line at a steady pace. Returned to the tap room which opens at 11. The service was exceptional even though there were a lot of people in the space. The tap room could be larger, but I think it was a particularly busy day given the release.
