Maine’s state motto is Dirigo, or “I lead.” It’s a motto that fits the state entirely, for reasons good and bad. At the turn of the 18th century, for instance, Maine led the nation in drunkenness – those early farmers and fishermen liked to party hard, apparently. In 1851, the passage of the prohibitionary Maine Law made the Pine Tree State the first dry state in the country. And in the 1980s, Maine joined the growing craft beer revolution with DL Geary Brewing, one of the United States’ earliest microbreweries. With about 50 breweries in the state and more than a dozen in planning, it’s safe to say that the state turned and ran from its brief flirtation with temperance. Maine’s vibrant beer scene boasts some of the largest (Shipyard), fastest-growing (Baxter), and best-reviewed (Allagash) craft breweries in the country. A tour of the state’s beer isn’t just a survey of styles that draw from European, English and American traditions; it’s a tour of craft beer history.
