We Just Slid In Some New Monthly Curling and Brew Tour Dates!

Based on popular demand, we have added brand new dates through October for our popular Curling and Brew tour in partnership with the Pine Tree Curling Club.

Our first Curling and Brew tour was in November 2017 as a special event during Portland Beer Week.

We knew that curling was an easy-to-learn sport for people of all ages and athletic abilities. So we built a tour that would teach some curling skills before everyone competes in a game. After the time on the ice, we headed out on to visit local breweries.

We partnered with Pine Tree Curling Club for these tours. Established in 2015, their goal is to promote the sport of curling throughout the Southern Maine area by offering opportunities to learn and enjoy the sport.

That new tour was so popular that we brought it back for another one-time event in April of 2018. After that, we developed a monthly schedule for the tours, many of which ran with two buses. We have also conducted a couple of private and corporate tours using this same model.

Over 360 guests have learned the basics of this sport since we started offering it – and that exactly is why the Curling and Brew tour exists!

We worked with the City of Portland to secure ice time at the Troubh Ice Arena. We then met with our partners at Pine Tree Curling Club to make sure that their volunteer curling instructors would be available to our guests on those dates.

So here it is…our Curling and Brew tours will continue to be offered from on the last Friday of each month through October 2020.

The times are from 10:15 am to 1:45 pm, and the brewery stops will change from time to time.

This tour is also available as a private or corporate tour on other days, depending on ice time and club availability. Contact our Group Sales Coordinator to find out more. 

Plan to take a Friday off and join us for some very unique fun playing this social sport. Bring a group of your pals to play…or get together with a team of new friends.
