This beer’s name honors the rich tradition of farming in the sixteen counties of Maine. Keeping with that sentiment, we brew the beer with exclusively Maine-grown grains: Maine Malt House 2-row Malted Barley from Buck Farms, Blue Ox Malthouse 2-row Malted Barley, raw wheat from Maine Grains, and oats from Aurora Mills & Farm.
Sixteen Counties has a bright, copper hue with aromas of lemon rind, flowers, and grapefruit. The first sip contains a mix of herbal hop notes, wheat cracker, and citrus. Its finish is balanced, dry and refreshing. The beer’s intentionally malt-forward flavor is meant to showcase the next generation of quality farming right here in Maine.
