We produce a wide variety of ales in our 5 barrel brewing system. Our recipes are influenced by Belgian and German styles, we also brew IPAs, Stouts, and many other styles. We have at least 8 different beers on tap and will change our line up monthly; brewing new recipes, seasonal beers, variations of regular beers, and experimental batches. 

We are committed to using local ingredients, 95% of the malt (grain) we use is locally sourced from Blue OX Malt-House, Lisbon, ME and the Maine Malt House, Mapleton, ME. Our local hops come from the Hop Yard, Gorham, ME. We will be producing several beers with 100% local malt and hops. 

Individual and group tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays (Just ask Jim or Tim)
