Maine Beer Tours will give craft beer lovers from New England, and beyond, the opportunity to learn about the brewing process, taste some of the best beers in the Northeast, and learn about the Maine brewing industry. Where exactly are we going on Saturday?
Urban Farm Fermentory
Conceptually the Urban Farm Fermentory is a fermentation center for food (sauerkraut, pickles, etc.) and beverage (cider and wine) fermentations, and a bee yard for honey production. In reality, it is much more than that. It’s a melting pot for like minded individuals who are looking for a creative, and tasty, outlet. The cider is darn good, too!
We’ll get a great chance to see their facility and sample a variety of their ciders and kombuchas.
Rising Tide Brewing Company
Rising Tide Brewing Company is a small-scale, family-owned brewery with a focus on handcrafted artisinal ales that draw on traditions from around the world. They distribute their beers through Mariner Beverage to bars, restaurants, and specialty retailers throughout Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts.
Samples, a spin around the brewery and the chance to meet a brewer.
Shipyard Brewing Company
The Shipyard Brewing Company has been making award-winning, craft brewed ales in Maine for almost 20 years. They have grown to one of the countries largest craft breweries, ranking in the top 20. Each and every batch of Shipyard beer is hand brewed in small batches, where they use only the finest ingredients, including the top fermenting, multi-strain of yeast from Ringwood Brewery in England.
We’ll watch a fairly painless video detailing their history and sample a number of beers from the Shipyard family.
