Foundation Brewing was founded on the idea that at the base of human community, you will find good people and good beer.  Born on the edge of Portland, Maine in 2014, our focus has always been on building a business we are proud of that makes a difference in our community one beer at a time.  Thanks for joining us on that journey.

Covid-19 Update (August 6, 2021)
Our patio is back to summer-size and will continue to be seat-yourself as we have been doing. The garage door is wide open, please enter there and order beers at the bar (for both here and to-go). Due to changing circumstances regarding Covid-19 and new state/city recommendations, we are now asking everyone to wear a mask when they come inside the tasting room, including to order and use the restrooms.

If a party vacates a table, we ask that you give us time to properly clean and sanitize it for you before you sit down. Bussing stations are set up in various areas of the patio; please bus your own table before leaving. There are hand sanitizer stations set up indoors and out, and our indoor restrooms are available. We do not currently have any indoor seating available. We have a very large tent with seating for inclement weather and shade, as well as many tables both shaded by umbrellas and out in the full sun. Something for everyone!

Our first priority is to keep our employees and guests safe and healthy, and we need your cooperation to do so. Please be sure to follow all posted instructions when visiting the patio. Please see the pulldown menus above for hours, beers on tap, and cans/bottles available to-go. We are focused on a safe but fun outdoor experience. You can read the rules posted on our FAQ to prepare for what to expect before you visit.

We are committed to continuing to offer you quick and efficient ways to stop by the brewery to pick up beer to-go or to have delivery direct to your door. PREORDER HERE FOR PICK-UP.  If you have a pre-order, just come through the big bay door and give the bartender your name. You can also order for delivery in Greater Portland using CarHopME.

We indulged in our desire to create an IPA that personifies the vivid flavors that can be coaxed from the hop cone, painted on a canvas of soft malt that allows the flavors to shine through. Extensively hopped in the kettle and in the fermentor, we spared nothing in making… Learn More »
