For my short(er) pre-American Craft Beer Fest column on RateBeer.com, I take a look at three up-and-coming breweries in the Portland area.
The pre-ACBF press crunch means that things will be a little lighter here this week. That doesn’t mean there isn’t some exciting stuff brewing, however. Big news, actually – it looks like within the next year, Maine will have at least three new breweries slinging their brews in the state and beyond. If you’ve yet to meet the new girls, I’d like to introduce you to Rum Riot Brewing, Rising Tide Brewing and Baxter Brewing.
Check out the full profiles (and my impressions of the two Baxter launch beers) on the Hop Press.
