Stop At: Bissell Brothers Brewing Company, 1 Industrial Way, Portland, ME 04103-1072

Bissell Brothers Brewing was founded in December 2013 by brothers Noah and Peter Bissell, along with Noah’s college friend Seth. Their original brewery was located at the now-famous One Industrial Way. Their first release was The Substance, a hoppy American Pale Ale that was first released in cans in January 2014 and immediately created massive demand from beer lovers. Since those early days they have increased their production by at least 200% a year which resulted in the 2016 move of the entire brewery to Thompson’s Point in Portland. They now brew in a revitalized space 10 times the size of their old brewery that was built in 1904 and once served as a railcar repair location for the Maine Central Railroad. They received a larger brewhouse during 2017 and sent their original system north to begin brewing for their second location in their hometown of Milo, Maine.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Mast Landing Brewing Company, 920 Main St, Westbrook, ME 04092-2862

The newest brewery to call Industrial Way home is Definitive Brewing Company, which opened in late May of 2018. They are located right across the street from Allagash. and next door to Austin Street, Foundation, and Battery Steele breweries. They were founded by Michael Rankin - a CPA, and Dylan Webber, the director of brewing operations who previously brewed at Mast Landing and Maine Beer Company. Rankin also recruited a large number of investors that are mostly friends and family from Central Maine. The team purchased an 8,100 square foot building that has a 2,500-square-foot tasting room and a large outdoor patio space. They are brewing on a 15-barrel brewhouse and four 30-barrel fermenters, which is enough to make more than 1,000 gallons a week. They started by having their their beers available for fans by using Iron Heart for the mobile canning of four packs of 16-ounce cans.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Lone Pine Brewing Company, 219 Anderson St, Portland, ME 04101-1400

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.

Duration: 45 minutes
