Tried this place w/ a few friends. Nice wood "cabin" type feel inside. On the small side, but perfect size for an early night crowd. Liked this place vs. the loud, industrial style brewing spots. Good brews. Will go again.

I stopped by Fore River Brewing while working in the area. I had two 5 ounce taste pours of their 10 creations. The Nitro Stout (John Henry Milk Stout) is very well done. I would put it up against the top stouts in the industry....More

The brewery has a parking issue on busy evenings. The lot cannot accommodate all of the vehicles that arrive and many cars park without regard for the people who live and drive in the neighborhood (i.e. parking on the corner, parking on people’s grass and...More

With so many brewery menus seeming to offer endless variations on an IPA and then one porter/stout for "variety" the selection at Fore River was a welcome surprise. Not just one sour, but three? Plus a kolsch. A red. etc. So many options and all...More

Went to Fore River after reading great reviews, as we arrived there was a nice outdoor area with live music playing and the place was packed! We lucked into a parking spot and went inside to order. They have a nice list of 10-12 beers,...More

We were antique shopping in Maine and decided to end our day by visiting breweries. This was our favorite stop. Staff was amazing and the beer was good. Highly recommend that you put it on your beer tour list!

In my opinion, one of Portland up and coming micros. Very solid and diverse tap list. Must try the Preble! Great sour. A little out of the way but short drive from Portland/Old Port.

Nestled in a residential area, this micro brewery has the feel of being a neighboring house rather than a business. In the hour that we were there, we saw several people stopping by with their pets to refill their growlers. There are plenty of tables,...More
