Maine Brewers Guild Presents: Freshman Orientation

  • Coffee By Design 1 Diamond Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

Welcome Freshmen! 

The Maine Brewers' Guild invites you to get oriented at our third annual Freshmen Orientation - showcasing all of the newest breweries in the state and giving you the chance to spend quality 'class' time with every brewer. Let the bragging rights begin - by the end of the event you’ll have tasted beer from 13 Maine breweries having opened in 2016 to date!

This is a ticketed event, purchase tickets online HERE!

Learn about their background, the styles of beer they brew, their plans for the future, and of course, sampling their beer! With many of these breweries not distributing beyond their local region, this will be a unique opportunity to sample beers from our state's 'Class of 2016' and have one hell of a day. No better way to spend a Saturday night. 

Ticket price includes entry, all samples, souvenir tasting glass, and some snacks to cleanse your palette!
