I'm surprised I have never rated this before. This place first off strikes you as very clean, the space in the taproom is very bright and clean. Their beers are exceptional as anyone has ever been anywhere and had their beers knows. They lean heavily toward IPAs that are delicious and hey crystal clear. The only downside to their beers is the shelf life of them are shorter than short. But most of their beers are exceptionally balanced and finish dry. The staff is friendly and they have about 6 of their beers to try and most of them are available for sale by the bottle or 12 pack case. Although, this is one of the more established breweries in Maine I was still awestruck by the amount of people at this brewery and the amount of beer being sold out the door. These guys are crazy busy and even though their taproom isn't that old they are doing a 4.1 Million dollar expansion. Good for them they do make great beer, and there are whispers that Dinner will be brewed more often once the expansion is done.

visited the tap room in freeport for my Dinner pick-up this morning. it is a small tasting room, but the staff did an amazing job managing the crowds and organizing the release. incredibly friendly and helpful staff. while I didn't stay long, left me with a great impression of the brewery.

Visited several times while I was stationed in Maine, and every time I have ever been here, I always had fantastic service. They keep a well lit and extremely clean little place. Staff is quite friendly and knowledgeable. If you're in the area, I recommend checking them out. Check their website when they decide to do "Dinner" releases.

Nice place with a great selection of Maine Beer. They have a great selection on draft and even more bottles to drink there or go. They also did flights of beer. Really good large pretzels

I went by myself on a Monday afternoon on a short trip to the Portland area, so I'm sure this place is a little more lively and fun on the weekends/nights. It was still busy, but the staff kept things moving. Love the window into the brewery that gives you the ability to watch the beers you're drinking in the early stages. Good selection of beers and nice seating areas inside and outside. Only downsides are no growler fills and my only real complaint was more about the cold pretzel I bought, which I wouldn't have if I hadn't touched it already. I'm sure they're much better warm. Overall, a cool place with some great beers and fun atmosphere.
