Beginner’s Guide to Beer In The Region
THE CRAFT BREWING COMMUNITY IN OUR REGION HAS A LOT TO OFFER! IF YOU LOVE SAMPLING SOME OF THE BEST BEER IN THE STATE, YOU’RE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
With over a dozen craft breweries in our region, Greater Bangor has become a craft beer destination. Visit one, or visit them all—each brewery is different and showcases their own style of brews.
Flavors vary from Neo-Traditional American, Farmhouse, West Coast, Belgian, English, and many more. The locations of our breweries are just as varied! Some are located right in the heart of downtown Bangor and Brewer while others are situated close to the mountains, near the ocean, or alongside a river. Our breweries provide a unique experience and are the perfect adventure for an afternoon visit or a “beer-cation”! Plan your trip around the Maine Brewers’ Guild Beer Trail and you will not be disappointed.
The Greater Bangor region is also home to several unique community craft beer festivals and events all year long in the Greater Bangor region and beyond.
Enjoy Oktoberfest to the fullest at events in Aroostook County, Mount Desert Island, and Bangor. Skowhegan’s Beer, Wine, & Food Tasting is the perfect fall event.
These unique experiences and events give you the opportunity to meet Maine brewers who are passionate about their craft. If you’re passionate about beer—you’ve come to the right place!
