Never got around to reviewing this place. Ample parking downtown with a really nice outdoor drinking area that looked out at the ocean. That was real nice. Decent offering of their own beers with good variety. The beers themselves were kind of all over the place as far as consistency and quality went. The person who was bringing out beers though was terrible. Repeatedly forgot or brought out wrong beers and took forever to get us the drinks when we were practically the only people there. On top of that he spilled two different drinks. Just..weird...and very out of place for this brewery.

Got there as they opened the doors on Saturday 2/24/18. A group of 14. No problem. The food was very quality, 4 interesting ipa's and several other selections...Kellerbier, stouts, reds etc. 6 children in the mix, no problem for the staff. Knowledable, kind, fun vibe overall. Very impressed.

Liquid Riot Bottling Company was established on the waterfront in Portland’s Old Port, just blocks from City Hall and was the location of the Portland Rum Riot, in homage to those that fought for their beverage of choice. As Maine’s first Brewery/Distillery/Resto-Bar, they take all the passion and energy of these past riots and put it into their own liquids, bottled or on draught, made fresh and locally for your enjoyment.

A cool stop on Commercial Street . We stopped in late afternoon/early evening and were able to snag a table for our party of 8. Loved the cool hangout vibe. Beer was very good with a wide variety. They also have a diverse house made spirits program but we did not try any. Service was a bit slow but the place was pretty crowded. i'd stop in anytime for a couple of beers.

Feels like a night club. We went after a late dinner and the place was dead at 11pm. Beers were hit or miss, but pretty solid overall. Real dark interior.

I just had the worst service of my life in this place. Sitting at the bar having a beer while my wife was shopping. She came in and sat down. They were busy, but not overly so. The bartender went by many times over the next ten minutes ignoring her while she tried to order a beer. When he finally brought her one she commented on the slowness of the service. He proceeded to pick up the beer and take it away. There are too many other good places in Portland to go instead of this place. It's a shame because my beer was quite good.
