Across the street from the fantastic Maine Tool Library, Lone Pine is a cozy space in a cozy corner of the East End with friendly staff that is currently producing roughly 13,000 barrels per year. Lone Pine’s flagship beer is the aptly named Portland Pale Ale, which is remarkably light with flavors of stone fruit and citrus.
The beer you shouldn’t skip: Don’t miss out on the brewery’s animal-themed DIPA series, which includes Diamond Unicorn, Quantum Cuddle Kitten, and Space Metal Dinosaur. The latter is a 7.8% ABV beer brewed with rye malt and exuding flavors of melon and orange zest.
COVID-19 protocols: Curbside pickup is available, and the tasting room is open for outdoor patio service only. Tables are on a first-come, first-served basis.
