Rising Tide Brewing Company
The 19 Best Breweries in Portland, Maine
The minimalist, garage-like space of Rising Tide feels fitting for a family-owned brewery that keeps its focus on local ingredients. Take Daymark, a bright crisp pale ale that uses local rye malt for a hint of spice.
The beer you shouldn’t skip: Daymark is worth your time, but take a look at Mountainside, too, a slightly hazy, tropical IPA that feels more appropriate for the wintertime and gives off notes of pineapple and grapefruit.
COVID-19 protocols: Order online for curbside pickup, or head to the outdoor patio, which bravely stayed open all winter, with seating options that include open tables around a firepit and bubble tents.
