Event Information

Enjoy craft concoctions and delicious appetizers amid tales of rum running and clandestine watering holes of the past!

This leisurely-paced walking tour carves a path through the streets of the charming Old Port while we share stories of life as it was back in the 1800's through present day. As you sip craft beer and cocktails, you'll learn how Mainers both smuggled in and made rum, so much so, that we needed prohibition way before the rest of the country (or so some thought). Learn the location of speakeasies which popped up all over town during this period of temperance, the story of our own "rum riot" and tales of where naughty sailors had their fun when they came to port. You'll see the first brew pub that was opened since prohibition ended and hear just how the Old Port area evolved to become a mecca for craft brewing. Finally, get in the know regarding Portland's current culinary and bar scene at one of the area's newest establishments. This tour is educational, tasty and definitely a happy two hours!

  • Local craft brewed beers
  • Creative cocktails
  • Appetizer pairings at each stop
