Our product line will be a diverse and changing portfolio of beers that reflect the constant change of seasons, agricultural availability of ingredients, and the whims of our brewer. Experimentation and a wide array of styles on tap at the brewery will be paramount to ensuring there is always something new and fresh for our customers to enjoy.
All of our beers will feature Maine grown and malted ingredients, including base and specialty malts from Blue Ox Malthouse and Maine Malthouse; raw and flaked grains from Maine Grains and Aurora Mills and Farm; as well as hops from The Hop Yard, Aroostook Hops, and other local growers.
