Maine Beer Company – Collaboration Beer Release
December 9, 2020 - January 5, 2021
On December 9, we released our contribution to the Maine Brewers Guild Collaboration Beer 2020 on draft in our tasting room. The Maine Brewers Guild promotes and advocates for the craft beer industry here in Maine. This year they have had their work cut out for them as they tirelessly have fought to protect our industry, and assist us in flexing and pivoting to meet the challenges of this year.
Traditionally, funding for the guild comes from the many festivals and events they host throughout the year. This year in lieu of those events, 39 Maine breweries agreed to create a collaboration beer, working off a single recipe, with a portion of proceeds going to support the guild’s work. Crosby Hops, Yakima Chief Hops, Maine Malt House, and Blue Ox Malt House generously donated ingredients, and through the end of this year (and a little of 2021) you’ll be seeing 39 versions of this beer from breweries throughout the state.
Our brew will only be on draft in our tasting room starting 12/9, but we encourage you to try it, and the other versions from our fellow Maine brewers while they are available. Here’s hoping this is the start of an evolving project for years to come!
