A Different process

A Different beer

  • Power Is Supplied by a Solar Farm

    Using submerged electric heating elements is nearly 100% efficient. 

  • 95% of Ingredients are Maine Sourced

    By using ingredients from Maine,  we capture the unique flavors and nuances specific to the region.

  • Mash

    This is where we "steep" our grains to convert the starches to sugar and create wort.  

  • Sparge and Drain

    We remove the mash from wort eliminating an additional brewing vessel.  

  • Upcycling

    We upcycle our spent grain from mashing. It goes to local farmers for feed, local bakers for bread and local pet outfitters to make dog treats. 

  • Boil

    We remove the mash from wert and boil in our mash tun eliminating an additional brewing vessel.  

  • Cool Down

    We recapture our coolant from batch to batch so as not use drinking water. 

  • Pitch Yeast

    We pitch yeast 

  • Fermentation

    This is where the real magic happens. The yeast eats the sugar from the wort to make CO2 and alcohol. 

  • Packaging

    We package our beer in kegs to be served from the tap room, restaurants and bars. We also package our beer in glass bottles which we proudly self distribute it through out the state of Maine.
