How to get here

If you’re coming from downtown Portland, there are multiple ways to get to the brewery. Be aware, during peak times it can take up to 45 minutes to get here from the downtown area.

BUS

Jump on the Route 2 Metro line to the Hannaford/Riverton stop. Click the button for the full schedule.

CAR

Taking a rideshare is a good idea. Be aware, during peak times, it can take up to 45 minutes to get to us from downtown Portland.

BIKE

We’re big fans of pedal power. If you're visiting during warmer times, the brewery is well within biking distance of downtown.

Electric Car

Driving an electric vehicle? You can charge it up here! Just ask a staff member, and they’ll point you in the right direction.

Monthly Charitable Partner

Each month, our Tasting Room team votes on a different non-profit organization to receive all funds our guests choose to add to their tabs.

September’s Charitable Partner of the Month is Maine Inside Out.

Maine Inside Out activates individuals and communities to imagine and embody freedom through art, advocacy, support, and transformative justice. Formerly incarcerated people lead our work to build a world where everyone matters and belongs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Safety

What protocols do you have in place to ensure customer safety?

  • All service is outdoors.
  • Hand sanitizer is readily available to all guests and staff.
  • We wash our glassware in professional high-temp dishwashers using industrial-strength sanitizer.
  • We will not allow any guests into the brewery; all service will be outdoors.

Can I visit from out of state?

We welcome guests from out of state and only ask that you adhere to the State of Maine guidelines for out-of-state travelers. Starting May 1, Maine exempted all states from travel restrictions, unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC. If one or more states see a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state.

Will I need a mask?

Per Maine CDC guidelines, we do not require masks at this time, as all seating is outside. We do ask that if you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, please remain at home.

Why is your staff not wearing masks?

Per Maine CDC guidelines regarding masking when outdoors, we do not require our staff to wear masks outdoors now that they are fully vaccinated.

Will tables be socially distanced, i.e., six feet apart?

Per Maine CDC updated guidelines regarding outdoor tasting room areas, we will not be spacing tables apart.

What to do when you arrive

Do I have to make a reservation to visit?

We don’t require reservations and offer first-come, first-serve seating. We can’t wait to see you!

Do you have a wait list?

Sorry, but we will not be able to contact you to let you know a space has opened up unless you are at our check-in podium.

How long is the wait for a table? / I’m on my way to the brewery. Is there a wait? / Can you put me on the waitlist?

Sorry, we don’t have an online or telephone waitlist. If the space is at maximum capacity upon your arrival at our check-in podium, we will admit your party when an equal number of guests leave the space.

Can I reserve a table for a large party?

We’re sorry, but with our reduced capacity we cannot reserve tables at this time. 

What to expect onsite

Are you kid friendly?

Children and infants are welcome; we just ask that they remain with your party at all times.

Are you dog friendly?

Friendly, well-behaved dogs are always welcome!

Where should I park?

Our parking lot will accommodate roughly half as many cars as it did prior to our tasting room closing in 2020. We recommend seeking a spot in our lot or parking safely alongside Industrial Way.

Will you have restrooms?

We are Porta Potty only for now. We have wheelchair accessible Porta Potties and a covered baby changing area.

How do I wash my hands?

There will be running water, sink, soap, paper towels, and hand sanitizer available.

Beers

What beers do you have on tap?

Check out our online menu!

What size beers do you have?

We will offer our beers in 8oz, 12oz, or 16oz pours, including brewery-exclusive beers.

Which beers come in 16oz pours?

We will offer a selection of lower-alcohol beers in this format.

Will you offer flights?

Custom flights are consistently time-consuming to fulfill, so we have made the difficult decision to hold off on offering flights for now in an effort to ensure that all of our guests will be able to get a chalice of beer in their hands as quickly as possible. We look forward to offering flights again as soon as we’re able to do so!

Are you using glass or single use cups?

We will be using our signature chalice glassware for onsite consumption. Please know that we wash our glassware in professional high-temp dishwashers using industrial-strength sanitizer.

Will you offer beers in cans/bottles to consume on the premises?

We do plan to offer certain cans and bottles of our beer for you to enjoy onsite, including brewery-exclusive options.

Food

Is ordering food required?

Ordering food isn’t required but the Bite Into Maine food truck will be on site if you’d like to order something to eat.

Is there a food truck?

Yes! Bite Into Maine will be onsite serving their award-winning lobster rolls, burgers, sandwiches, non-alcoholic drinks, and snacks. Please visit allagash.com/visit for more information and hours of operation.

What are the hours for Bite Into Maine?

Bite Into Maine will open when the tasting room opens and close roughly 30 minutes prior to our closing time. That said, their days and hours of operation are subject to change and will be updated on the website at allagash.com/visit.

Beers To Go

Can I buy beer to go?

Absolutely! You can purchase beer to go while you are ordering your beer to drink here and we can keep it safe and cool for you until you are ready to leave.

Can I buy beer to go without waiting for a table first? What if there’s no room to sit and I want to at least buy beer to-go?

Once you check in at our podium, you can come through our “beer to go” line and order it directly there if we are not at maximum capacity.

Tours & Indoor Seating

Do you plan on resuming your tour program?

We have no current plans to offer tours through the summer. The risk of allowing guests into the brewery is too great at this time, though we do look forward to offering them again when we feel as though we can safely resume them.

Will you be open for indoor tasting?

Service will be outdoor only for now. However, we offer plenty of covered areas that offer protection from sun and rain.

Why can’t I come indoors?

Unfortunately we have a small indoor space that limits our ability to distance our guests properly and we’re using that space to be able to effectively serve our guests outside. We’ve set up both covered and open areas outdoors to accommodate as best we can for different preferences. We look forward to the day when we can welcome our guests back into the building for pours and tours!
