I've met a few of the Southern Maine Homebrewers. Small group, but very enthusiastic and seemed pretty nice.
I'm like a chocoholic, but for booze.

Default Portland Maine homebrewers

I meet with the Southern Maine homebrewers, just moved to Portland myself. They're meeting in Acton, Maine but they're not opposed to meeting in Portland occasionally. I was hoping to get a brach of their club started in Portland. If you're interested drop me a line.

I'm in Portland, wouldn't mind getting in on a homebrew club locally. Acton might be a bit of a drive, I'd love to meet up with some likeminded brewers.

I'm in Topsham and would be interested. Feel free to contact me at jwb96 at yahoo dot com.

Anyone in Maine know of a stainless welder who will work for beer? I have a keg to be converted into a cooler.

Big old bump on this thread....Not sure if anyone has had any success in meeting up with other brewers in Portland, but I'd definitely be interested in drinking/creating some good beers.

Default Southern Maine Homebrewers

I'm an SMH member. We meet every third Thursday of the month and we now rotate meetings between Sanford, Saco & Wells areas. We have talked about rotating as far north as Portland but haven't seen enough interest to make that move yet. Next month's meeting is a club pub crawl and will likely take place on a Saturday. I believe the plan is to focus in the Auburn area. March's meeting will be in the Saco area. For more info on joining our meetings you can check out our Facebook page.
