  • Yes, you can get food from the takeout windows by ordering online or walk-up, and there will be food trucks as well. Food is not included in your ticket. 

  • Maine Brew Fest is a 21+ event, so kids are not allowed inside of the tasting tent unless they are in a baby carrier. We do not recommend bringing strollers into the tasting tent. Kids should not be left unsupervised outside of the tasting tent. 

    Dogs on leash are allowed in the tent. Please bring bags to pick up after them. 

  • Yes, but you will need to purchase a Designated Driver ticket.
