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.

Maine Beer Company - ironic because most people who live in Maine can't afford it. Decent beers but overpriced. Haven't bought from MBC since we now have access to better beers that are $4/can rather than $8/bottle. If the unique 16.9 fl oz bottle and bottle carbonation is causing you to try to charge a premium, switch to cans and a brite tank...

Looking forward to seeing the new taproom expansion and I am hoping you bring your prices back down to earth or I will continue buying other beer.

Just love the quality beer this brewery produces. Do not have a ton of beers to choose from as they believe in offering quality over quantity ("Do What's Right"). Yet, what they do have is probably the best quality top to bottom. They are expanding their facility by leaps and bounds and was so happy to be able to visit them this summer while on family vacation.

Maine Beer is about consistency and quality. Not big or flashy, just good beer. The tent outside was full so I went inside, lines were reasonable and in no time I had a sample pour and 3 beers to go. Tap room is cozy, you will get to know your neighbor. But it's fun, and I picked up a beer I had not seen in stores. If you are in Portland, you gotta make the drive to Freeport.
