Foundation Brewing was born 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.

After switching to a model of to-go and curbside for 3.5 months this Spring, we were excited to open our outdoor patio on Friday, June 26th. Now, after a successful summer on our patio, we are transitioning to a Winter Small Patio set-up as of December 1st. The weekend of Thanksgiving will be our final weekend open on our big table-service patio. We’ll be open all winter for beer to-go and counter service pours on our smaller version of our patio. We’ll have outdoor heaters to keep you comfortable. 

Please see the pulldown menus above for new hours, beers on tap, and cans/bottles available to-go. We are focused on a safe but fun outdoor experience. We will not have any indoor beer service over the winter, but an indoor restroom is available. Please 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.  We have a table set up at the front where you can pick up your preorder quickly and easily. Also, feel free to just stop by the table to order. If you are having a drink on the patio, your server will be able to help you. You can also order for delivery in Greater Portland using CarHopME.
