Just wanted to post my experience as MBC comes up a lot on this site and I want to contribute my two-cents. Today, my GF and I stopped by Maine Beer Co. at the Riverside St. location (they are moving to Freeport Maine in about a month) and went on the tour. I want to emphasis that today was the 2013 Blizzard "Nemo." Despite my initial skepticism that MBC would be open today for tours due to inclement weather, they kept updating their twitter and did in fact conduct their normal tour. Once we arrived at the brewery (it is a very small space) we were greeted at the door by Dave Kleban (one of the founders of the brewery). We were a small group that braved the storm for the tour, six in total, but I can honestly say that it was one of the best tours I have ever been on. The brewery was in full operation (a batch of Mean ol' Tom I was told) and Dan was happy to have a very informal and fun conversation with us while we walked around and looked at all the equipment. We were treated to two free samples of pilot batches they were working on and a first-class look at how a small brewery operates. Throughout the entire tour, Dave answered every question that was asked and gave amusing anecdotes about how he and his brother (Dan Kleban) had grown the brewery from as he termed it "home-brewing" equipment. He was very open and was genuinely interested in making sure we saw everything and had all our questions answered. On top of everything, I picked up a Zoe (truly-tasty Amber Ale) and a totally bitchin' pint glass at the Merch shop for a reasonable price. Full disclosure: I am addicted to Peeper Ale, love Lunch, and think Mo is one of the tastiest things out there. Still, this was a great tour where I was made to feel totally welcome and really enjoyed myself. MBC beers may be a little higher price-point than many other offerings, but it truly is wonderful stuff that is consciously-crafted to be the best. End love-fest.
