Interesting basement brewery tucked away in the backyard. Entry through what was mostly likely the garage, timber framed, like being in a old wine cellar. Small bar around to the right and some barrel chairs about the room. Also had backyard set up with barrel chairs and table, nice on a warm day. About 20 beers on tap, I had the Continuum which was excellent.

Low lighting, low ceilings, lots of wood--slatted and ditressed--and walls lined with hundreds of bottles. Seats made of whiskey barrels, a shuffleboard table, and an inconspicuous bar in the darkest corner of the space. A cozy, intimate cave of timeless Western appeal. The space is quite beautiful

I have never seen a brewery with so many draft selections, BS seems to do a bunch of different BA beers with different treatments and it makes for ridiculous draft variety

Side note: it never seems packed, but it would lose much of its charm if it were

Fun place, interesting brews, really special if you like Barreled Aged big beers.

Lots of space outdoors in nice weather, corn hole, chairs, rails to lean on.

Inside it is clean, lots of seating made out of barrels, rustic, small bar with stools.

Tons of variety including big BA brews, IPA, sours. Multi size pours makes it easy to try a bunch of stuff.

Lots of swag, growlers and they had bottles available to go when I was there. The bottles were hand numbered.

Stopped by over the weekend for the Deep Space release. Great space and great service to go with the great beers. Plan to start making the trip on a regular basis.

This barrel themed brewery is absolutely top notch. All beer is fermented in oak barrels!! Most of which is then aged in bourbon (or other spirits) barrels. It has a speakeasy basement vibe. And the service from the bartenders is second to none. Bring your own food and play some games (corn hole, shuffle board, cribbage etc) and drink the best beer Maine has to offer here!

Just a really really funky and fun place to go. You have outside or inside the "dungeon" to taste your brews. Fun beer list and one of the owners told me that they like variety and brew accordingly. some of their standbys are on tap more often. My beer trail was rewarded with a really enjoyable place to try brews.

Awesome atmosphere rustic feel set in the basement of an old Victoriana. Old beer and bourbon barrels as seats and wooden planks for the bar I the tasting room. But they tried to get a little to creative with their beers.

I love this tap room! Barrels everywhere from the fermentation to the chairs to the tables. Everything is made of barrels. Has a very old world vibe and very nice. Located in the basement of a house which I believe is an attorney's office. They always have great music playing, think Neil Young. Service is always great and they always have a varied selection of beers from IPAs, Pales, Stouts Scotch Ales, Wheats, Barelywines, Gose and usually something bourbon barrel aged. I just wish I liked the beers they made a little better their stouts are so far my favorites.

Stopped in while on vacation in OOB. Lots of seats and a really cool corn hole area out side. You walk into a basement with a really cool and extensive display of empty bottles. Bar room is dimly lit with a feeling of a Maime words hunting lodge. Lots of tables and chairs made out of bottles. Lots of card decks and cribbage boards throughout. Awesome shuffleboard table as well. Bartender was friendly, and lots of wood fermented beers to choose from. No flights so to speak but u can order 4 oz pours of anything at $1.50 - $2.50 per pour. I had a cookie flavored porter, a wheat wine (favorite style) and a bourbon aged scotch ale. Friend had one strawberry Gose and a golden ale with agave and hibiscus. Only knock on this place was a lack of options for the beer noob I was there with. He loved the atmosphere so was still happy to be there

The folks here are doing fantastic work. The service, selection and quality are really top notch. When you have a beer brewed with 25 lbs of bacon you'll certainly catch my attention. A definite return trip in the near future

How is it that I've driven by this place a few times and never stopped by until recently. I think I know how I'm going to pre-game for a day at Funtown.

Walk around the back and through the basement doors of this ol' house to find yourself a nifty cozy brewery. A glorified home bar setup with rustic seating, cool looking light bulbs, barrel and barrels of barrels, a shuffleboard for those looking for entertainment and an interesting assortment of beer selections.

Around 10-12 taps to choose from, either get a small sample size or go bigger. Take home growlers available, I went with a 4 pack along with their carrier. Similar quality to the Allagash House Beer case since it's from the same maker.

Anytime I'm passing through Saco, I'll be hitting this place up to fill up the growlers I leave in my trunk. Highly recommended for a visit.
