For Maine, With Love

Local Grain

In 2016, we made a pledge to brew with one million pounds of local grain, per year, by 2021. And we did it! There’s no better way than buying local grain to help support the farmers and maltsters that call Maine home.

99.8% of Brewery Waste

We Sidestream it

We’re always working to reduce our impact. That includes finding new homes for material we can’t use and ensuring that our waste is recycled. One specific way we do this is our Recycling Co-Op, where we collect hard-to-recycle materials from partner breweries and stores, and ship it all off to be properly recycled.

Brewing to support

Clean Water

For every barrel (31.5 gallons) of beer that we brew, we donate ten cents to Sebago Clean Waters—a collective of organizations working to preserve our local water source. Clean water is essential for our company, our community, and our high quality of life here in Maine.
