We held our rehearsal dinner and welcome drinks at MCD and it was awesome. The food was fantastic, the drinks are great and different than a typical brewery space, and the ambiance was very cool. When it's decorated a little, the private event space in the distillery looks great.

I liked the music, the band, the food, the atmosphere and the service. Our waiter, Ross, was professional, courteous and nice. I already invited two of my friends for the next music gigs there.

This is a great little spot with great cocktails from their distillery. The outside patio area is fun and eclectic. Live music most nights too!
Garrick Hoffman
Love this spot. Been here quite a few times now. On NYE I had a fantastic whiskey cider drink, and recently had a couple delicious hot toddies. The food has always been excellent too. My most recent bartender, Ross, was friendly, a great "mixologist," and he was super helpful with providing advice for my friend's Montana trip. I also just love the aesthetics and vibes here.

First time here. The chili was delicious! Lots of fresh veggies, beans & the meat, yummy, very tender, great texture. The hand-held apple pie was spectacular, the apples inside the crescent-shaped dough tender & juicy. The 5-piece band was great, each one a great musician in their own right. Ben who took orders at the door was friendly, funny, personable & just plain nice. Place was near & clean, including the bathroom. Had a great time.

Stopped for a drink on a cold day and had the best time! Cool space, great booze! Whiskey and gin are top notch and staff is amazing, Kevin and Lestat the best! Thank you guys, really hope to come back soon!
Sarah Ellis
What a gem! We went to sample the spirits and got so much more. Sitting at the bar the bartender was able to tell us all about the spirits. Which we greatly enjoyed the large sample. Then the pretzel bits. Holy cow. What a treat. Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed with the drink, food, nor atmosphere.
Mark Lyons
My favorite place in Portland. The Fifty Stone Whiskey is the best locally made whiskey in New England. The food is pretty damn good too.
Ricky Blaine
By far, my favorite place in Portland! Jessica the bartender is the best. Staff is so friendly and hospitable. They constantly put on amazing music year-round. This is the place you want to spend all of your money! ???
Adam Baqer
We had an amazing night full of alcohol, laughs, and good food!We each had a flight of alcohol, then used another to play trivia.The food portions were big and sharable.The staff members were helpful and funny. The live music did not make it in that night, but I heard that is also fun as well! Highly recommend if you’re in town.Blueberry moonshine was to die for.
Kelley Smith
This place is amazing and a must stop if you like liquor. Cute outdoor seating and friendly staff. Truly some of the best liquors I've had. 3 tasting pours for $5. Don't miss.

Went there in the afternoon on the weekend and really had a wonderful time. Great, fast, thorough service. Drinks were perfect and the outside venue was fun but still offered plenty of shade. Outside is 100% dog friendly, and there is a decent amount of off street parking. Happy hours during the week is a great option if you live in the area, I'll def. be going back.

Met up with a few friends at 6PM on April 29th to check out a band that was new to all of us. Venue is small, staff was attentive rest rooms were clean, drinks were delicious and served quickly.Nacho platter was nontraditional and looked like bottled baby food poured over lightly toasted pieces of flour dough. Tasteless.The burgers and the other food looked good although we didn’t order more food.Band was really good and fun. The crowd was rocking and we had a nice time overall. Looking forward to going back when the outdoor area is open!

Don’t miss the chance to see bluegrass band Hot Buttered Rum on Sunday, May 26th @ Maine Craft Distilling! All the way from San Francisco!

HOT BUTTERED RUM 
A bluegrass band from San Francisco, California
https://www.hotbutteredrum.net

Hot Buttered Rum is a souped-up, left-coast string band and the brainchild of uniquely gifted musicians who weave their love of bluegrass, folk, jazz and soul into a riveting strain of Americana. String bass and five-alarm fiddle merge with guitar, banjo, mandolin, drums and keyboards to frame the voices of its two contrasting writers, fueling a dance party with roots in Appalachia and its branches in California. It’s a sound that’s as tough to describe as it is easy to love. Twenty years into its journey, HBR’s music, dreamed up in the backcountry of the High Sierra and the basements of San Francisco, has found its way into the hearts, minds and bodies of fans nationwide. The band continues to tour year-round in support of its many albums and social causes.

“Stunning instrumental and vocal virtuosity.” – Relix Magazine

“It’s that working man regimen that ensures their consistency from one offering to another. That’s the kind of quality that makes Hot Buttered Rum always seem to go down so smoothly.” – Bluegrass Today
