Guess I never got around to reviewing this brewery after all the times I've been there. Vibe is pretty cool, plenty of outdoor picnic table seating with spacious inside as well as seating at the bar. There seems to be a food truck perpetually there which is nice. Solid selection of beers, larger tap list of various styles even if depending on the time of year it's really hop heavy. The beers are always pretty much on point run of the mill representations of style.

My biggest issue here is the service. I always hit this place up when in Portland as it's in a central spot for a few breweries and all but once the people running the bar have been inattentive to put it politely. Whether it's on their phones, talking to friends, or simply gone without a trace it's a chore every time to order a beer. My last trip up I was in a queue of 4 people, two of which were in front of me, and had the misfortune of watching the bartender lackadaisically get beer for those two people only to then without word or warning walk away from her post behind the bar and into the back. For fifteen minutes. The gentleman and myself looking at each other trying to figure out what was going on only for when she finally returned to go and help people sitting at the bar. Twenty five minutes after she had initially left the bar tender returned to take my order. I mean...that's comically awful service. The other times were bad but no where near that bad and the second round of beers I bought went exponentially more smoothly than the earlier experience. Still, things like that are inexcusable.

This was a great place to check out. I already love their beer and the staff were all great, enthusiastic, and helpful. I did the tour and it was just me, my girlfriend, and the tour host. They showed us the whole brewing process, encouraged questions, explained what goes into their beer, etc. The person that gave us the tour was awesome and felt like talking with a friend than a staff member. The place was cozy, casual, the bar beautifully decorated, clean, and had a friendly atmosphere. They had a lot of merch and have growlers available. Each staff member is happy to give recommendations if you are unsure what to try, and they offer flights. The prices in house are very reasonable, much cheaper than expected. Great place, great vibes, great people, and great beer. Definitely pop into this brewery if you are ever in the neighborhood.

We stopped by in June and they had live music outside and drafts were flowing along with food trucks parked and ready to serve hungry customers. Good variety of brews and I've seen them in some Mass. liquor stores so their distribution seems very good.

Nice brewery in a good location. Is walkable to and from downtown areas. They had a food truck when I was there, 3/22. Which was awesome. Beers were solid. I recommend checking out.

Great staff. Great beer. Varying selection of special beers and pilots. The location is great and they have food trucks rotating all summer and weekends year round. Live music on sunny days. You are missing out if you never check this place out.

Nothing fancy about it, but it works. Great meeting area for the after work folks for a casual beer with friends, either new or known. I would go there again next time in town and being close to WholeFoods and Trader Joe's has to be a plus for Rising Tide
