Liquid Riot is energetic Brewery-Distillery-Resto-Bar named in honor of the 1855 Portland Rum Riot. We're located at the top of Union Wharf where we serve seasonal and delicious comfort food menus. Riot dishes are made with locally raised, caught and farmed meats, seafood and veggies. Our bartenders specialize in crafting drinks using our own spirits including Liquid RIot Old Port Bourbon Whiskey ~ "Maine's Bourbon" ~ rums; vodka, Bierschnaps; Fernet Michaud and more. We’re well known for our beers, we brought home a World Beer Cup Gold Medal in 2016. We consistently have up to 16 taps pouring Liquid Riot easy drinking lagers, hoppy IPA’s, bold Imperial Stouts, sours and more. Cheers!
