Over three hours, a small group of guests get to see the brewery from the inside: taking part in brewing and/or blending a beer, going in-depth with quality control and sensory programs, tasting beers directly from the barrels, and getting up-close and personal with the packaging department. Before it’s done, they will have chatted with brewers, noshed on some of our favorite local fare in our private bar, and ,when possible, even had a beer with our founder, Rob Tod.

Mast Landing Brewing Company (Tasting)
It all began in 2013 with a simple homebrew kit. It wasn’t long before we found ourselves in the garage mashing, boiling, and fermenting beer after work and every weekend. After two years of experimenting with different beer varieties and recipes, we felt it was time to take our passion of brewing and drinking craft beer to the next level. In the summer of 2015, Mast Landing Brewing Company was officially formed. We are extremely proud of our new home in Westbrook, Maine and we are excited to share our hard work and passion with the people of this great city. We hope you enjoy drinking our beer as much as we enjoyed brewing it for you.

We are fortunate in being able to source the majority of our high quality meat, produce, dairy and seafood fresh from Maine farms and fisheries.
