(updated July 2015)
Established in 2009, the Maine Beer Trail spotlights the high quality and creative diversity of fresh, hand-crafted, Maine-made beer. The purpose of the Trail is to give visitors a unique way to enjoy the vibrant micro and craft brewing industry found throughout the state. The Maine Beer Trail is an easy to follow brochure that can be used throughout the state to find nearby pubs and breweries. When we launched in 2009, there were about 25 breweries on the trail. Today there are more than 50 breweries that welcome visitors all around the state. Hit the Maine Beer Trail and get rewarded!
Visit Maine Breweries, and get rewarded. It’s that simple. Click the link above to download a .pdf version of the pass, or visit your local brewery to pick up a hard copy.
NOTE* We will also always accept older versions of passes as well, just send ‘em on in once completed and we’ll get you out your rewards. That said, feel free to combine an old one with a new one so you don’t miss out on all the new breweries popping up all around Maine! Also, note that if you completed the trail with friends or a spouse and you have the same mailing address – just drop all passes into one envelope for easy shipping and we’ll be sure to send you all your well-earned Guild gear!
FAQ’s about the Maine Beer Trail:
Can I get all of the prizes?
We offer one reward per beer trail. So, choose your submittal carefully! if you mail it in with signatures and dates showing you visited between 10-19 breweries, you will receive a hat. If you mail it with 20-less than all of the breweries, we will mail you a t-shirt. If you mail it in with signatures and dates showing that you visited ALL of the breweries listed on the beer trail – you will receive a prize pack. We ask that you only mail it in one single time, and please note if you mail it in with fewer than 10 breweries stamped, we will not be able to reward you.
How long before I receive my rewards?
Please allow 4-8 weeks once you mail it in for us to mail out your rewards.
Can I get my beer trail signed at brewfests?
No. We created the beer trail to help people explore Maine’s breweries, so you must visit the brewery location to get your beer trail signed and dated.
I visited a brewery, but I forgot to get it signed, can I just check it off and mail it in?
Sorry, but we only accept beer trails that have been signed and dated by a brewery staff member.
I want a specific size t-shirt, can you help me out?
We ask that you list the size of your t-shirt on the pass when mailing it in with 20+ breweries visited so we can do our best to get you a t-shirt that fits. However, we are a very small organization and not always able to stock every size t-shirt, so we reserve the right to substitute a t-shirt of the nearest size we have available in order to fulfill your rewards.
What’s in the prize pack??
You’ll have to visit all breweries and mail it in to find out!
