Heather Sanborn, a Maine Icon

Heather Sanborn left a lucrative career practicing law to help her husband grow Rising Tide Brewery in 2012. But at the time it was illegal for breweries to charge for samples of beer in a tasting room. So Sanborn became a member of the Maine Brewers’ Guild and utilized her legal expertise to play an instrumental part in getting the law changed.

The result has been an explosion in beer tourism for Southern Maine, attracting tourists from throughout New England and beyond.
