Hop aboard a lime-green minibus and take a tour of southern Maine’s top microbreweries. The 13-passenger Maine Brew Bus offers three tours with stops at Allagash, Sebago, and Rising Tide breweries, Federal Jacks brew pub (the birthplace of Shipyard), and other beer-related hot spots. Each tour includes samples and snacks, a tour of the brewing operations, and a chance to chat with brewers. The Local Pour Tour visits a mix of beer, spirits, and coffee producers in Portland. $65-$75, depending on the trip length.  207-200-9111, www.themainebrewbus.com
