In a modern industrial building with 3 other breweries and across the street from Allagash, it's like a beer drinker wet dream. Serving from a garage door bay , tented off space in parking lot. About a dozen beers on tap, I had the Afterglow, very nice...

Small upcoming ME brewery near Allagash and a growing population. Amazing fruit sours.

This place was awesome. Was on a vacation in Maine, came to this location primarily to go to Allagash but stopped at each brewery in the area and liked Foundation the best. Awesome sours, they had ipa’s and some Belgian’s when I was there. It was a freakish heat wave while I was there, I bought quite a bit of beer and they let me keep it in their walk in cooler while I visited Allagash. Highly recommend.

Guess I never got around to reviewing this place. Decent amount of parking, plenty of space outside for drinking roped off, rather spacious inside for cans and bottle sales. Always a bunch of beers to chose from with various different styles on tap. Seems to always be at least a few fruited beers and stouts. Beers are always solid enough though most of the ones with wild yeast strains tend to be on the lackluster side. The broad variety of draft and to go selection is always refreshing. Certainly worth hitting up when in the area.

Lots of beers to choose from (10 or so), which you can get in flights, pours or for takeaway. Helpful and friendly bartenders. Tables in and outside, but no table service. Because it's in the Industrial Way brewery incubation "beer park", lots of food trucks pull in with a variety of offerings, and you can walk to the other half dozen breweries there and sample from them as well.

Located in an industrial park - cool vibe and solid staff. Good beer as well as takeaway. They have an inside and outside area - very close to Allagash.

Aug 2018...another stop on the Portland industrial park tour. Get some Allagash spillover here, but still plenty of indoor/outdoor seating to get comfortable. Don't miss the retro pinball inside either. About 10 beers or so on tap with good sampling options. Plenty to choose from for take out and a few shirts if you are so inclined. Good times.

great selection of merch, cans, bottles, growler fills, and pours. Staff is knowledgeable of beers they have, and what's coming up. Food truck is always there, and picnic benches and corn hole outside. Nice mix of customer ages, dog friendly, and clean bathrooms.

Top quality beer! Had to wait in line a good while to get some cans, but that is to be expected in this area.

Located in a cluster of breweries (Allagash and Austin Street), it is a smaller place serving flights, drafts and growlers. Used to be dog-friendly but no longer probably due to the small size of the place. Beer is excellent IMO.

Hot as heck when I visited a few days ago, but it was a great experience. Staff was awesome; attentive, knowledgeable, and super pleasant and welcoming.
I had only previously tried Epiphany, which I grabbed a (stellar) small pour of when I arrived, but all four beers I ordered in the flight afterwards were great (especially the guava one).
Atmosphere was just kind of there, maybe due to the heat and humidity(?) but overall a really solid experience.
