SUPPORTING OUR NEIGHBORS
We are lucky to call the beautiful coast of Maine our home. We are able to craft high-quality and consistent beers thanks to the support of our community. We strive to give back as much as possible. It is our goal that other industries, be it agriculture, tourism, or art and culture are able to grow while sustaining the invaluable natural resources and wildlife our home has to offer.
We host a year-round, weekly CSA through Harvest Tide Organics in Bowdoinham, ME
We use locally grown and malted grains from Maine Malt House, Buck Farms, Maine Grains, and Blue Ox.
Whenever possible we use fresh hops from The Hop Yard in Gorham, ME.
We purchase local flowers for our tasting room and private events through Broadturn Farm, in Scarborough, ME.
We regularly host local artists for pop-up events and craft fairs.
We offer space for community groups to gather and connect
We host local musicians every week from early spring to late fall.
We host non-profit socials in our tasting room to support their efforts.
PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT
It is our goal to keep the beautiful landscape of Maine alive and thriving for years to come. We have committed to doing our part to ensure a sustainable future. We make a point to use sustainable ingredients, and production methods, and constantly strive to lower our carbon footprint, so this beautiful state and its natural resources can be available to all for generations to come.
REDUCE + REUSE
All of our spent grain and unusable yeast is donated to Hall Edge Farm in Windham, ME.
We package our beer in cans. They are readily recyclable, produce less cardboard and plastic waste, and they are lighter to transport – which saves fossil fuels.

We focus our efforts on supporting economic development, LGBTQ+ rights, BIPOC equality, reproductive health and rights, combatting hunger, stewardship of Maine’s natural environment; oceans and rivers, local land trusts, and outdoor activities.
Maine Island Trail Ale
In 2023 we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of our flagship ale, Maine Island Trail Ale session IPA brewed to support the Maine Island Trail Association and their work to provide stewardship to Maine's wild islands so that they may be protected and enjoyed for years to come.
Our Maine Island Trail Ale (MITAle) is light, crisp, and refreshing with notes of citrus and pine. With its low abv, it is a great choice for hot days on the water or cool nights around the fire. We are thrilled to say it is now available year-round!
Not only do a portion of the proceeds go directly to the Maine Island Trail Ale but each year members of our team will take a day to go to one of the islands and volunteer.
We value giving back to our community through our extensive charitable giving program and we wish that we could accommodate every request that is received. To maximize our impact we focus our charitable giving on 501(c)3 non-profits located in Maine whose focus is in one of these areas:
- Stewardship of Maine’s Natural Resources
- Maine's Economic Development
- LGBTQ+ Rights
- BIPOC Equality
- Reproductive Health and Rights
- Combating Hunger
