Maine Beer & Beverage Co. was founded in 1998 by two attorneys,
Andrew Braceras and William Milliken, whose love for Maine beer and
the New England Patriots brought them together to establish a retail
store as an original vendor in the now-defunct Portland Public Market.
The partners opened a store on Portland's waterfront in 2001 that also
included liquor, which still exists as Downeast Beverage. In 2006, faced
with closing or finding a new space when the Portland Public Market
closed down, the business jumped with several other market vendors to
28 Monument Square and formed the Public Market House. The rest is history.
