Foundation Brewing was founded 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 been making a difference in our community, one beer at a time. In July 2022, we opened up our pizza kitchen showcasing the love of the crispy square pizza we grew up with as kids in Detroit.

While keeping our focus on creating delicious pizzas and brewing our signature variety of beer styles, Foundation has also turned our attention towards making the Industrial Way tasting room a hub for locals and beer visitors to focus on friendships, camaraderie, and the simple enjoyment of going out for pizza and beers. In the past year, we’ve expanded our private event program for small group gatherings, hosted numerous networking and community events, and launched our first mug club called the “Stein Society.” 

When you visit us on Industrial Way, our tasting room space is open for indoor seating, in addition to our outdoor patio in all seasons (weather permitting). In the spring/summer/fall, we have a large outdoor tent. During the winter and cooler times, the patio has heaters and fire tables. Pupper-friends are welcome on the outdoor patio year-round, but they should be on a leash and with you at your table at all times. We’d love for you to follow our @foundationpups Instagram account!

You can order beers and pizza for here or to-go by walking inside and ordering at the bar. Can’t stay for long at the brewery? Our online store continues to be a great way to preorder your beer and pizza for easy pick-up.

Pizza was WORTH the price I paid for it. It was delicious and I’m taking the rest home for a meal tomorrow. This place has gay vibes and I love it.

Wonderful brewery with great staff and beer, the Detroit style square pizza is no gimmick, the crunchy cheesy edges are worth it alone but the rest of the pie is also delicious, also just over the road from Allagash and has it's own outdoor area when the sun shines. Excellent merch as well. All on ground level and easily accessible.

Foundation Brewing is a fantastic delight. We had the opportunity to meet one of the four owners tonight and she was so friendly. Tina runs the tasting room, if you see her while you're enjoying the beer or pizza... make sure to ask her some questions about her hometown (Detroit, MI) or how Foundation Brewing came to be a local micro-brew.The pizza is a light, fluffy and crunchy exploration in all the best ways you could imagine. I think this brewery is getting the absolute most out of what space they have to work with and their staff is so friendly/helpful/patient. I'm committing myself to returning over and over and being (hopefully) a regular :)10/10 would recommend to anybody in and around the Portland/Westbrook city line.

Fantastic beer selection, great location and the best staff! There are places outside and inside to enjoy your beverage and they have tasty food! The 2 pints and a pizza deal is a STEAL! Also, they allow you to mix and match your to-go beers which allows you to bring home some of all your favorites! Enjoy!

Great beer and Delicious Detroit-style pizza! Dog friendly is a plus. Will definitely be back next time we're in Portland
Bill Mecha
Great variety. Friendly staff. Delicious pizza. Flights are the perfect way to get to know the selections. S'mores Love is amazing!

Cool place surrounded by a lot of other breweries. Can make a day of it. Lol. Great brews and really great pizzas. Awesome staff.

Pizza was amazing! I was looking for something to eat in the area and found this. Highly recommended. Also, it didn't occur to me that you could make a beer taste like s'mores. Definitely need to try it.

Nostalgia! Foundation's deep dish Detroit style pizza gives you 80s Pizza Hut BOOK IT pan pizza vibes. This dish 100% takes you back, and I'm here for it. Love the crust and the crispy cheese up to the edges, you will too! If you're a local or from our of town, when checking out the breweries, stop by Foundation to soak up all those brews! Insider tip, Mondays and Wednesdays, they offer 2 beers and 1 pizza for $25. One pie is enough for two to share. In the photo, we highlighted the bacon and blue pizza and, of course, a couple of tasty IPAs. It was all a great combination of flavors.

This pizza was truly outstanding. Having not had much exposure to Detroit style pizza, you’re in for a treat. You can build your own traditional pizza or try one of their specialties. We tried three different ones and all were amazing.My party also tried 4 different beers and the non-alcoholic brew. No one had any complaints.The pizza dough is also used for the bread on the hummus plate, which was amazing. We also had the chips and dip and the dip is something unlike any you’ve ever had.Party of 7 went 100% - 0 complaints about anything. Can’t recommend highly enough.

I love, love, love this brewery! I first visited Foundation in 2017 and my recent visit in May 2023 was a treat! They have made some nice updates to the inside, expanded their patio space, and added a bunch of delicious beers to their menu. Many of the craft breweries in Maine focus on IPAs, so as a sour beer-lover, I was thrilled to see multiple options for sours! I ordered a flight of just sour beers and was pleasantly surprised at the range of sweet and tart options. We didn't get a chance to try their food, but I am excited to return to try their pizza or other delicious food items. The patio was dog friendly and had a mix of tables and picnic tables. I can't wait for our next visit!

What a great Detroit style pizza! We ordered a Pepperoni and a Mushroom Bacon. Both were outstanding. Cheese all the way to the edge and a crispy crust that's delicious. Nice cup pepperoni that's spicy, and the sauce is delicious...i enjoy that the edge of the crust is pure cheese crisped to the pan.
