Travel + Leisure The Perfect Three-Day Weekend in Portland, Maine – Now, time for the brews. If you’re traveling by car, it’s no trouble to drive around the greater Portland area to tour various breweries (like the esteemed Allagash Brewery and Bissell Brothers Brewing Company), but the easiest option is to hop aboard The Maine Brew Bus, which leaves for tours from the Craft Beer Cellar on Commercial Street. The bus takes beer lovers from venue to venue on an all-inclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of Portland’s craft breweries. At $55 per person, the tour bus varies which breweries it makes stops at depending on the day of the week and the theme of the tour (tours run midday on weekends and weekdays, lasting for several hours). August 23, 2016

MatadorNetwork.com The 10 Best Craft Beer Towns in America – The other Portland gets all the attention, but Maine’s largest city (which, by the way, is still super small) is the stand-out when it comes to beer. The big boys in the city’s craft beer scene are Allagash, Maine Beer Company, and Shipyard, but there are a ton of other really fantastic small breweries, as well — and Portland bars and restaurants are super supportive of their local breweries. One of the best ways to visit all of them is to take The Maine Brew Bus, which hits up a ton of breweries in the Greater Portland Area. August 17, 2016
