Bangor Maine has become quite a destination for breweries over the past few years! we have no shortage of great beer and awesome taprooms. If you’re visiting Bangor, Maine, and you are a craft beer junkie, here’s your guide map! Literally. I put all of these locations on a map for you. Go here!

Bangor Beer Co.

This eclectic tap room features an outdoor patio (dogs are welcome), many games and things to do and always plays the best tunes. There are usually 6 or 7 of their own beers on tap and they also have a rotating tap list and delicious pub food. Including Totchos. TOTCHOS. Bonus – they deliver growlers!! If you’re staying in a hotel in Bangor, you’re in radius. Call 207-947-6969 and place your order.

Black Bear Brewing Company

193 Exchange St, Bangor, ME 04401

Black Bear Brewing has been a staple of the Bangor area for years and just recently opened a spot in Bangor. Nice atmosphere with live music on the weekends. We can’t wait to spend more time here in the months to come!

Geaghan’s Brewing Co.

34 Abbott St, Brewer, ME 04412 |
The tap room has outdoor seating and an occasional food truck in the evenings! Inside, there are great views of the brewery as well as snacks and wine. You might also find live music happening. Geaghan’s is a staple in the Bangor region. If you haven’t visited their flagship restaurant and had pub cheese on everything, you haven’t lived.

Nocturnem Draft Haus

56 Main St, Bangor, ME 04401 |
Ok, so this is not a brewery, but they do showcase many of the fine local beers that Bangor has to offer, so you should absolutely stop here if you want a nice sampling. It’s also a great place to go if you are with friends that don’t like beer –  a great wine selection and a full bar. Music on weekends. Outdoor seating available and burgers, tapas, and other pub fare available. Inside tip – try the wings! Read more here. 

Orono Brewing Company

State St, Bangor, ME 04401 |
OBC is a small tap room with big flavor. This is a great stop on your walk around Downtown Bangor, or to meet a friend for a drink to catch up! OBC also has a tap room in Orono, where they brew and are expanding their brewing facility

Penobscot Bay Brewing

279 Main St, Winterport, ME 04496 |
Penobscot Bay Brewery shares a space with Winterport Winery – they are partner brands! You can stop into the taproom and try a sampling of beer and wine, and then stop by the Wooden Spoon for some baked goods and a snack! The gift shop here has all kinds of great things. Plan to stay and look around! Bonus – owners are awesome and all hands on – you’ll likely meet them. Say hello to Joan and Mike from us! Read more here. 

2Feet Brewing

80 Columbia St, Bangor, ME 04401 |
I’ve only been here once and I remember the beer was good.

Sea Dog

26 Front St, Bangor, ME 04401 |
Sea Dog is the old faithful. They have awesome outdoor seating and Blueberry beer that you just HAVE to try. A great place to sit outside on the water, and try a Blueberry beer, or my personal fave the Sunfish (grapefruit!) and a Maine Lobster! A definite stop if it’s your first time in Maine.

And, if you’ve exhausted all of your breweries in Bangor/Brewer, here are a few others in a close proximity that are totally worth the drive….

Friar’s Brewhaus

84 Main St, Bucksport, ME 04416

It’s new!!! We haven’t been yet but we can’t wait. Bucksport is developing! A beautiful coastal community.

Thresher’s Brewing

22 Main St, Building 3B, Searsmont, ME 04973 |

Marshall Wharf Brewing Co

40 Marshall Wharf, Belfast, ME 04915 |
We LOVE Marshall Wharf Brewing Co and Three Tides. GO HERE! Check out the taproom downstairs and then stay for a beer and some food at Three Tides. If you like funky spots with killer views – you’ll love this!

    Left out Blank Canvas in Brewer. And perhaps some Ellsworth breweries.

      didn’t leave them out, just haven’t been there yet!! We were trying to get to Airline the other day but ran out of time. Where’s Blank Canvas these days? I’ll check that one out asap. I used to go to the old taproom in Brewer before it closed, but I don’t know where the new one is!

        They didn’t necessary close. Just found a better landlord/space, one street over. 46 Betton street. And Ellsworth has Fogtown brewery as well. Just down the street from Airline. 🙂 It is a summer adventure to hike and explore and find a brewery to reward yourself.
