The Best 5: Local BreweriesNo trip to Maine is complete without a stop at one of these cozy and inviting brewery taverns. Best brews: “Best Bitter” and “Black Fly Stout,” preferably served at one of the pubs via traditional hand-pull. Auburn, Freeport, and Portland, MECome for the beer, stay for the food! You’re assured a good meal (without spending a small fortune). Try the cranberry-apple pork loin, and take a look into the brewer’s area from the dining room.
