Celebrate Maine Island Trail Ale's 10th Birthday with us! Saturday, April 8

Giving back to our community

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.

Giving back to our community

Through our extensive charitable giving and sustainability programs to create a thriving and safe space for all and to support and lift up our neighborhood and greater Portland communities. We focus our efforts on supporting economic development, LGBTQ+ issues, BIPOC equality, women’s reproductive health, combatting hunger, stewardship of Maine’s oceans and rivers, local land trusts, and outdoor activities.
