Given that Bar Harbor has blossomed into quite the foodie scene, it’s also a great place to enjoy a handcrafted cocktail, local brews, and bottles of blueberry wine.
Check out my guide on where to drink in Bar Harbor, Maine.
Atlantic Brewing Company
Atlantic Brewing Company hosts a free tour of their brewery 3 times a day in the afternoon from May to October. The tour includes a free tasting of their beer, as well as flavored soda, like blueberry. You can also visit their downtown Bar Harbor location, where they serve pub fare and small batch brews.

Bar Harbor Cellars is located on Sweet Pea Farm, where they make their own wine. I highly recommend buying a bottle of one of their blueberry wines. It makes an excellent souvenir to remember your trip by.
