After working in the retail side of beer for over a decade, Tom Madden decided that the time was right to break into producing his own beer. A long-time home brewer and Certified Cicerone, he reconnected with his longtime friend John Paul who had been working in the music industry in California. Together, they opened Lone Pine in March of 2016 in a former countertop production space in Portland’s East Bayside and quickly enjoyed tremendous success and popularity. In 2018, Lone Pine moved their brewery into the former Sebago Brewing brewing facility in Gorham which has increased their production volume by ten-fold. They have also opened a spacious new tasting room at the new site allowing them to also expand their barrel program.
Banded Brewing Company was founded in the winter of 2013 by cousins Ron Graves and Ian McConnell. It was fitting as these two had started homebrewing together back in 2005, and Ian had received excellent preparatory training for commercial brewing while serving as the head brewer at Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Brewery. They opened Biddeford’s first ever brewery in a 200-year-old mill building, part of the historic Pepperell Mills complex. Banded’s variety of both ales and lagers, as well as the spacious tasting room filled with multiple entertainment options, make this stop truly unforgettable.
Originally based in a tiny, brick-walled former scrapyard building in East Bayside, Bunker Brewing Company has moved to a much larger former warehouse on the West side of town. Their creative brewers make a rotating assortment of ales and lagers, making this the perfect stop during which to ask the question, “What’s the difference between an ale and a lager?” Enjoy their spacious tasting room and outside patio while pondering that important question over a well-crafted Bunker beer.
