It took us a while to find, but we're glad we did. Fun place to hang even though it is in an industrial area that is a bit run down. Ample outdoor seating, pretty decent indoor seating. The staff was VERY good on their knowledge of the beers and really helpful in talking me into doubling my purchase of their Gose... Sampled four beers, two were very good and the other two were OK. Very laid back atmosphere even though they were fairly busy. Behind the counter, things looked very chaotic in the warehouse/brewery area but it didn't impact the visit, just something noticeable. Worthwhile stop.

While the interior set up wasn't ideal for a crowd on a 90+ degree day, the beers were cold & delicious. I enjoyed a Maine Island Trail Ale, light & crisp.

Really fun brewery. Plenty of places to stand indoors and a bunch of umbrella'd picnic tables outside. 7 beers on tap when we went. Growlers, flights and 10 ounce tasters available for a very reasonable price. Would definitely visit again

Pretty neat place, the brewery is visible in the background, with typical beer stuff hanging everywhere on the walls, and stacks of their beer in front. Small counter, but it's OK since it doesn't seem to get too busy. They have a few pours to offer from their current offerings, and you can sit outside on picnic tables which is nice, although it's more of an industrial area and somewhat busy roads so not the best scenery.

Next door is a neat little distillery I would suggest also checking out. The brewery itself a little further from the beaten path, not in the middle of all the other happenings, but not too far from the Oxbow blending place, so it's worth the stop in if you're nearby.

Great people, cool space, lots of offerings. A staple on the Portland beer circuit. Near lots of other cool stuff - Coffee By Design, Urban Farm Fermentory, Portland farmers market - and worth making a part of your day.

Stopped in over the weekend after Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp and had a great time trying their beers. They are located downtown Portland in a little industrial park. A small tasting room which had a full view of their brewing system and smaller tables outside with a Food Truck on the weekends.

The staff was super friendly and helpful and guided us through a full tour of their beer lineup. The samples and full pours are both reasonably priced and they have about 8 beers on tap. I enjoyed all their beers and specifically liked the Maine Trail Ale and Zephyr. I would definitely recommend checking out all their beers if you get the chance.

They offer bottles, cans and growlers to go which are all at a reasonable price. They also sell tshirts, hats, hoodies, etc.

I would definitely recommend checking this place out. A standard small brewery space with great beers and people. Cheers!

When I visited rising tide they were in the first few months of opening.. nothing fancy, more of a warehouse turned brewery with a small home type bar as the tasting area. They had 4 styles on tap but the Ursa Minor was the clear winner and I brought home a bottle. Very nice staff who were friendly and answered all questions. They make good ass Beer.
