Freshmen Orientation

Welcome Freshmen!


Part of Portland Beer Week November 5th – 11th. Exact date and location of event to be announced in September 2017

The Maine Brewers’ Guild invites you to get oriented at our fourth annual Freshmen Orientation – showcasing 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 and met the people behind Maine’s newest breweries.

Learn about their background, the styles of beer they brew, their plans for the future, and of course, sample 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 2017’.

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

Featuring nearly every new brewery that has opened in Maine since November 2016:
