You love a good porter, and the subtleties of a fresh hop IPA aren’t lost on your palate—sounds like you’ve joined the craft beer movement! Lucky for parents who enjoy a good pint, there are scores of breweries and pubs that not only open their doors to families but create a fun, relaxing environment for everyone. From working farms that serve up fantastic ciders to world-famous breweries and gardens, flip through the album below to see our favorite spots to grab a brew with babes in tow.

Atlantic Brewing Company – Bar Harbor, Me

ABC was one of the first to hop (pun intended!) on the microbrew craze. Built on a ten-acre farm, the entire place was designed to create an entire experience where visitors could learn first-hand about small-scale beer production. There’s also a tasting room and beer garden, the very popular Mainely Meat BBQ, and a large outdoor courtyard area. The kids will love the playground in the back, and Atlantic Brewing even does flights of housemade soda tastings for the little ones!
