Maine Beer Company

Maine Beer Company has been brewing quality beer since 2006, when Peeper was born out of their single-barrel brew house in Portland. Now over a decade later and in a much larger facility, they produce some of the most sought-after IPAs and Pale Ales in the Northeast.

Since day 1, they have been committed to “doing what’s right” which for them, is more than just making quality beer. Through 1% for the Planet, they’ve pledged to give 1% of sales to environmental non-profits such as The Center for Wildlife, Allied Whale, Maine Audubon, and many more.

Check out our latest offerings from Maine Beer Company and know that every time you enjoy one, you are doing what’s right. Cheers!

MAINE BEER COMPANY

MO: 1/6, 1/2

Just after opening our brewery, working long nights, weekends, and still maintaining our day jobs, my brother Daniel (the brewer) had twins. Cheers to his courage and dedication to making better beer. ABV: 6.0%

PEEPER: 12/16, 1/6, 1/2

After a few years of home brewing in our garage, my brother and I decided we should open a brewery so that we could share our beer. In 2009 we started with a one barrel system and worked on a single recipe, over and over, until Peeper was born. And now we have enough to share. Cheers! ABV: 5.5%

LUNCH: 12/16, 1/6, 1/2

Lunch is a special whale that has been spotted off the Maine coast since 1982. She has what looks like a bite taken out of her fin, which adds to her unique character. We dedicate this beer to her determination and persistence. Keep on swimming! ABV: 7.0%

ZOE: 12/16, 1/6

On a rainy fall day in 2009, my five-year-old daughter Zoe and I were wandering the streets in Bar Harbor and stumbled across the Whale Museum. Zoe loved it. It put a smile on her face. Hopefully our ale will do the same for you. Cheers! ABV: 7.2

A TINY BEAUTIFUL SOMETHING: 1/6

“Most people are on the world, not in it –  have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them – undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate.” ABV: 5.5%

NITRO MEAN OLD TOM: 1/6

I think it was the summer of ’76, I was 5 years old, and my Uncle Tom came to paint our house. It was in the tiny town of Louisiana, Missouri, on the mighty Mississippi River, where he would take me to troll the roadside ditches to gather one man’s junk (beer cans). In honor of his magnificent treasure (his beer can collection) and his spirit for fast cars, tough motorcycles and mean smiles, we bring you Mean Old Tom. ABV: 6.5%

ANOTHER ONE: 1/6

When we expanded our brewery in 2013, the stress was something, to say the least. I ran out of creative juice for a minute so I decided to have another one for inspiration. ABV: 7.0%

WOODS & WATERS: 1/6

We brewed this special IPA to commemorate the establishment of the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. We incorporated Maine-grown barley and wheat, along with generous amounts of hops with flavors and aromas of pine and citrus, reminiscent of the outdoors. Cheers to Mother Nature and all she provides us! ABV: 6.2%

POST RIDE SNACK: 12/16, 1/6

If Dave’s not in the office, he’s out on a cycling adventure. And he’s almost certainly drinking a beer afterwards. We don’t know why biking and beer go together so well, but they just do. We brewed this session IPA as a refreshing post ride snack with notes and aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, mixed berries, and grassy pine. Cheers to every ride!ABV: 4.9%
