A brew of ‘Substance’ in Maine

Hidden in plain sight in an industrial park, in Portland, Maine, across the street from venerable Allagash Brewing, is an incubator of sorts for craft beer.

Allagash was founded in 1995, but the three tiny, neighboring craft breweries — all under the same roof — are just getting started. Foundation Brewing Company, Austin Street Brewery, and Bissell Brothers Brewing Company have set up shop at One Industrial Way. The first two breweries have only been open a few weeks. Neither packages its beer, but patrons can sip samples and fill growlers on site. The beers are also available at select bars in the Portland area. Foundation’s Blaze, a farmhouse IPA, and Austin Street’s Patina Pale, are standouts.
