BIKE YOUR WAY TO THE BEST BEER AND MORE IN MAINE
Portland is a great city for biking, and for craft alcohol. And with so many craft breweries located near safe paths, we are happy to present three different Bike and Brews Tours in Portland!
The gathering point The Portland Encyclepedia at the corner of India and Commercial Streets. This is where you will meet your expert guide and check out the provided bikes and helmets.
After a brief safety talk, it is time to hop on board the bikes and pedal our way as a group towards the first stop.
Our three-mile routes mostly feature biking on mixed-use paths where no vehicles are allowed, and there is considerable biking along the ocean with scenic views out to many islands in Casco Bay.
Along the way, we will make a few stops to learn about Portland’s rich history from the Rum Riots to Prohibition.
At each stop, we will learn a little bit about each company, meet the people responsible for delivering quality craft beverages, and sample their various products.
After biking our way to each of our stops, together we will head back to the starting point with a better understanding of Portland’s thirst for outstanding craft beer and other beverages.
