Meet Rising Tide Brewing Company

Rising Tide Brewing Company is an independent, family-owned brewery that anchors Portland, Maine’s vibrant East Bayside neighborhood. We are guided by creative flavors, quality, consistency, community, and a love of all things outdoors. Rising Tide supports our farmers, using local ingredients in every beer.

Our beers are available in cans and on draft in our tasting room in Portland’s East Bayside neighborhood and at select locations in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. Our beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized.  Each can is alive! For the best experience, handle gently, store cool, and drink fresh. If you are a retailer interested in carrying our beer, please check our Contact page for a list of distributors.

Heather and Nathan Sanborn

Nathan Sanborn

Director of Brewing Operations and Owner

Rising Tide’s beers are brewed by Nathan Sanborn, a Portland native. Prior to founding Rising Tide in 2010, Nathan spent more than a dozen years teaching himself about brewing, experimenting with creative recipes on his home-brewing system, and serving up his beers for feedback from friends and family. Nathan is fascinated by the science and the art of beer-making. He strives to create beers that are informed by traditional styles but with a creative, modern sensibility.

When he’s not brewing and selling beer, Nathan likes to ski, sail, cycle, and cook for friends and family.

Heather Sanborn

Director of Business Operations and Owner

After earning a master’s degree in teaching and then a law degree, Heather never expected to be running a brewery. But she has jumped on board with a level of excitement that has buoyed Rising Tide from its very inception. From financial projections to supply chains, Heather pulls a laboring oar in nearly every aspect of the brewery operations. Heather is currently serving in the Maine House of Representatives and is past-president of the Maine Brewers’ Guild.

When she’s not putting out fires at the brewery, Heather likes to ski, sail, watch NFL football, and hang out with her son and her pup.
