This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: The Maine Brew Bus, 79 Commercial St, Portland, ME 04101-4719

Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Brewery Extrava, 66 Cove St, Portland, ME 04101-2514
Opened in July 2019 by Joe and Charlene Doherty along with brewing industry veteran Michael LaCharite. LaCharite, the head brewer, has abundant experience in the professional brewing industry. A Siebel Institute of Brewing Science graduate, he has owned and/or brewed at some of Maine’s most iconic breweries. Brewery Extrava is located in Portland’s East Bayside - one of the hotbeds of craft alcohol production in the city. They are brewing on a custom-built, three-vessel, 10 bbl brewhouse along with a 1 bbl pilot system, and they have a large tasting room filled with wood elements and serving up to 12 beers on tap. They are creating both traditional and innovative variations of Belgian and other international beer styles, including mixed fermentation and barrel-aged beers. Their goal is to offer a contrast in style from the hop-forward portfolio of many of the breweries in the area. Extrava means “to come from exploration and examination”, and this new entry into Maine’s craft beer scene is poised to give us some creative takes on familiar styles.

Stop At: Three of Strong Spirits, 35B Diamond St, Portland, ME 04101-2515
Three of Strong opened in Portland’s lively East Bayside neighborhood in July of 2019. Founded by financial and investment manager Sam Pierce and beverage industry attorney David McConnell, their 6,200 square foot tasting room is also their distillation workshop.

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.
