Rising Tide-OTTO collab ‘Autohelm’ release party tonight at NEW Back Cove OTTO!

Join us tonight at our brand spankin’ new Back Cove location at 250 Read Street in Portland, as we start pouring the third annual release of Autohelm, a deliciously hoppy amber ale brewed by Rising Tide Brewing Company in collaboration with OTTO.

250mapOur Autohelm release party is from 5-7pm today (Wednesday, Oct 12). Rising Tide and OTTO staff will be on hand to talk about the beer, and there will be schwag! Come check out our new digs while enjoying the first pours of this delicious winter beer.

This limited special collaboration will be available exclusively at OTTO locations in Maine and Massachusetts. (Note: Only 250 Read Street will begin pouring today. Other ME locations will begin pouring early next week, with MA locations in late October.)

OTTO Mallside: One of SoPo’s Hidden Gems

In an unassuming industrial park a stone’s throw from the Maine Mall, sits one of SoPo’s hidden gems.

Don’t blink; you might just miss it.

Tucked between the mall and Clark’s Pond Cinema (and right next door to Maine Escape Games), you will find the most spacious OTTO in Maine.  And one of the only restaurants in Maine with its own indoor bocce court (which doubles as a cornhole court, if you’re so inclined).

Those who have discovered the Mallside OTTO have become enamored with it. Its casual backyard barbecue ambience, the ample parking, and the convenient location make it a great alternative to fast food, and other national chains that line Maine Mall Road.

Keep your GPS on and hone in on it. It’s worth a few passes,” writes Christine B. on Yelp.

A rare gem in [South Portland],” according to Derek B.

Shannon S. writes, “One of those “if you don’t know it’s there, you won’t know it’s there” kinda locations…cozy vibe and pizza was on point.”

Janice B. says, “So happy to find a spot like this near Maine Mall. We grabbed a bite and then went to a movie – perfect!

Ben V writes, “Ordering online for both takeout and delivery have been flawless. Same great pizza as their other locations, and easily the best pizza in the entire state.”

So, whether it’s a night at the movies, holiday shopping, car shopping, or a trip to the hardware store, you can still get your OTTO fix at one of SoPo’s best kept secrets.
