Excellent and a nice surprise. Mainely Pale Ale and Whoopie Pie were excellent. Mainely is on par, if not better, than Maine Brewing Co’s Peeper. Pours cloudier from the can than on draft if you give it a good swirl, but good from either. An easy stop off 95 and well worth it. York 54 is next door with pizza and also VERY good. Worth a stop!

Out of the way in the back of a small stop mall. Need a seeing eye dog to lead you there but feed that damned dog some extra dog bones for getting you to SoMe. Place is funky but ALL about the beer and some great shoot the bull opportunity with other folks who have found SoMe. Outside seating available as well. Fun place. Interesting selections and not all will float your boat but, trust me, you WILL find something you will like a lot. And you will come back if you are from the area. Or passing through.

It's completely hidden, but what a hidden gem! Right off of route 1 in York, friendly staff, live music on Friday night, and usually enough variety on tap to please everyone. I highly recommend if you're swinging through the area.

SoMe stands, of course, for Southern Maine, but their choice of stylization makes them practically ungoogable. And that's a shame, because this place is cozy and friendly, and the beer was quite good.

SoMe is physically hard to find, as well. Coming from Kittery, it's a little ways past all the outlet malls. The road forks off and you have to bear right and turn almost immediately into the parking lot of a credit union. SoMe is located in the back, and their sign is so small it's very easy to miss.

The place itself is about the size of a mom and pop retail storefront. There's indoor seating for maybe about a dozen people, with a handful of seats outside.

The bar pours full pints (referred to, cutely, as "large samples") along with 32 and 64 ounce growlers. Bombers are also for sale.

There were 8-10 beers on tap when we visited. I sampled two and clearly remember one: Apostrophe IPA. It tasted fantastic on tap but merely very good out of a bomber. The bartender was knowledgable and friendly.

Very nice place to stop if you're in the area, maybe maybe 5 minutes from Tributary and 10 from Portsmouth. Nothing struck me as super exceptional--If i was only going to one brewery in the area, it'd still be Tributary--but if you have a few extra minutes you should really stop by.

great place lots of good beer. Apostophe IPA and Crystal Persuasion both extremely good beers. box the compass a super double IPA. the 2 Daves who own/brew the beer are both great people
they have popcorn and hot dogs there but have no problem if you want to bring in your own food to enjoy with a beer or 3!

Very hard to find. Located in the back of a building, with a credit union in the front, on the busy corner of Route 1 and 1A (York Street).

But.....

When you get here, it is more than worth it. No food, but you can bring your own-or order delivery something , others have.

Beer is good. Brewer is often pouring beers, which is nice. For the brewery tour you can simply peek in the back. So it's cozy.

Whoppie stout one of my favorites. Crystal persuasion, and variations, a nice ipa and best seller. He's more toward the hoppy pale ale end if the spectrum. But makes a nice triple.

Cozy place with good fresh beers.

My newest Maine gem. A little different from the other great Maine 9 or 10 but in a great way. Very down-home, amazingly tasty and certainly fun. Watched the World Cup and drank some world-class beer. The brewer is also the pourer, can't go wrong with that. Can't wait to go back.

A new brewery in York, ME.
Very minimalist. Located in what could best be described as a mini strip mall, the place isn't much to look at. A small bar, eight tables, four seats at the window (with the backs to the room), and the ubiquitous TV. Not much in the way of decoration. There is a popcorn machine, but no food.
Fortunately, the beers are very good. On my visit five beers were available: Agamenticus Amber, York Gold (a rye beer), Whoopie Pie Stout (a milk stout), Snow Day (a winter warmer), and Black The Sky Rye (a black rye ale). I sampled them all, and thought they were all good beers.
The five beer, four ounce per beer sampler was $7. 32 and 64 ounce growlers are available for $8 to $16. I thought those were reasonable.
Now that I know this place exists, I will definitely be going back.

York, Maine finally got a brewery, so I had to try it out. I did not make it in on the opening day but did manage to get in within the first week. It might be a little hard to find for those not familiar with the area, but it is a nice little place. Set up like a bar type atmosphere, no food(yet). The brews are rotating right now as they are just starting. Currently four beers available on tap and for take home growlers, both 32 and 64 ounce. A few more beers are being brewed now. The owner/brewmaster is the guy serving you the beers and is a pretty nice guy to talk to. I only had a few minutes to chat, but the new place is naturally quite busy with everyone trying it out. Overall neat little place, hopefully soon they will have some food and possibly expand to accomidate the crowds.
