Return to Shop at Craft Beer Cellar Portland

In the two years that the Craft Beer Cellar has been open in Portland’s Old Port, thousands of our guests have passed through their doors. Now we are providing another good reason to stop back in to the store after a tour. 

The Craft Beer Cellar opened at 111 Commercial Street in Portland in late August of 2014. In the two years that have followed, close to 7,000 guests have checked in for a tour with us at our official home.

The sign in the window of Craft Beer Cellar Portland shows that our guests are at the right spot for their tickets and tours.

On the tours our staff talk about our partnership with the retail store, and encourage our guests to stop back in while they are in Portland to purchase beer, cider, and mead to bring back to the hotel or take back home.

Our very first tour departing from the Craft Beer Cellar Portland in the fall of 2014.

The store has a definite focus on Maine products, this is evident as soon as you walk through the front door. With an eye on the local scene, it’s always been a great spot for our guests to pick up something they learned about on a tour, or maybe a can or a bottle from another place that they have yet to visit in Maine.

Our partnership with the Craft Beer Cellar in Portland has taken another major step forward with this news: guests aboard our Maine Brew Bus tours will now receive a $5 voucher good towards purchases made in excess of $20.00.

The new $5 vouchers are available to guests on our tours starting today.

This card will be found starting today in the branded gift bags that are on the seats as you enter the bus. They can be used anytime after the tour, but only at the Craft Beer Cellar in Portland. 

And although we would love it if it was used to purchase items from our over 30 local partners, we certainly understand if our guests are looking at picking up a regional, national, or international brand to enjoy.

Andy and Paul prepare to check in guests for a recent tour at Craft Beer Cellar Portland.

The Maine Brew Bus will be paying the Craft Beer Cellar the full value for every card that is redeemed. So it is a promotional voucher that works for our guests just like a gift card.

So look for these vouchers on each of our tours, and then we will see you again after the tour inside the Craft Beer Cellar in Portland!
