We have partnered with our good friends at the Maine Brew Bus to create an award-winning combination of bikes and brews. Join us for an afternoon of biking, discovery, and beer on the Bike and Brews tour. With over 25 craft-breweries in Portland, there are beers for every palette. Your guides will meet you at the Portland Encylepedia at 6 Commercial Street in downtown Portland. After a brief safety talk, it is time for bikes and brews. Your guide will pedal you some great beer where you will meet the brewers and learn all about Portland’s rich history from the Rum Riots to Prohibition.
In partnership with:
- Learn Portland’s Beer History
- Taste Maine Craft-brews
- Bike Along the Ocean

The gathering point is The Portland Encyclepedia at 6 Commercial St where we will meet our guide and check out our bikes.
After a brief safety talk, it is time to hop on board the bikes and pedal our way as a group towards the first brewery.
Our route mostly features biking on mixed-use paths where no vehicles are allowed and feature 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 alcohol, 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 alcohol.
Please note that tour stops may change without notice due to events and availability of staff at each venue.
