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.

A small interior space just off the highway, as well as a patio with some excellent oven baked pizza made by a guy just working his tail off. Board games available to keep the kids busy if you need. Their website shows 10 beers that they brew; they have 8 of them available on tap at any given time. Sadly, they did not have "Dinner" the day I was there. My wife & I split their "All In" flight where you get 5oz of each of the 8 beers. As we went through them, one thing which struck me and is different than most flights I've had is ... they were All REALLY good. Even their session IPA was full of taste & stood out for me as the best session I've had - avoiding that somewhat watery taste & feel that accompany most sessions. Ratings will follow as I made some notes as the tasting went along but this brewery makes good beer. That and, they make only beer that suits my style preferences so that works out well too. Only real downside is the beer is too pricey. $18 for the flight and then $6 per bottle if you want to take some home. We did, as their beer is very well done, but compared to the Alchemist at 12.50 per 4 pack (which we did earlier the same day), the value is just not there. I would have purchased a lot more take home with a better price point.
