I embarked on a weekend trip from Connecticut to Maine with a group of fellow craft beer buddies to sample the local brews. Our itinerary:

Day 1
Drove from CT to MA
Spent the night at Four Point Sheraton, Norwood, MA

Day 2
Drove from MA to ME
Ate dinner at the Little Tap House in Portland, ME which had a great selection of local beers including Bissell Brothers which we hoped to visit but ran out of time
Spent the night at the Westin Portland Harborview Hotel
Day 3
Drove home to CT

Many of these breweries are among the highest rated breweries in the country according to Beeradvocate. Allagash was the only brewery with a tour and it was one of the highlights of the trip. Other highlights included waiting in line at Treehouse to buy 10 cans and table shuffleboard at Barreled Souls.

My favorite beers of the trip included Treehouse “Green”, Maine Beer “Lunch” and Barreled Souls “Death Star 3”
