Visited in November 2018 and we fortunate to run into Dinner release so we enjoyed some of draft and bought some bottles to go. Located off Route 1 in Freeport, plenty of parking and clean inside although a strange layout with restrooms on the side of the main bar which makes it hard to get into them with the inside crowd. Pretzels available as well as a limited menu which included a Cuban sandwich for $12. Beer was great.

Tiny, tiny, cozy little tap room. Two coolers, one with cases, one with singles. The usual suspects on tap. 5oz pours for $2.70. Tried a pour of Dinner, and left with a bottle. There were beautiful looking pretzels, but I'm not sure how much they cost, or if that's a regular thing. Bottles are about $6, Dinner is about $8. Good parking space, no crowd on a Tuesday afternoon, and good selection. Will return.
Edit: Tucker is the man. Tucker, if you're reading this, you're the man!

August 2018 - a Maine visit highlight, a must stop for any beer lover in the vicinity. Indoor/outdoor tap room space, with a massive expansion underway. 8 drafts on tap, with options for tasters/flights. The quality of the beer here is top of the scale. Try everything. Plenty to buy to go cold in bottles, with an ever evolving stock. Plus, an outdoor pizza kitchen turning out high quality pies - no need to mess with any other food. Where it is at.

Maine Beer Company is right on US Route 1 in Freeport, Maine. Relative to the ample parking, the serving space seems a bit small, although it can clearly accommodate several dozen, but in discussion with the server, I understand there are plans to renovate and expand the serving space dramatically. I stopped in hoping to try Dinner, their DIPA ranked #1 in Maine on BA, but found that will not be released until Memorial Day.

That said, the bar itself is large with 8 taps all dedicated to MBC originals, which are uniformly excellent. Bottled versions of what is on tap are also available. The space is modern, bright, and impeccably clean. In addition, the vibe is low key and welcoming and the serving staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Sadly, I did not really have time to stay for long, but would certainly be glad for that opportunity in the future.
