Bigelow Brewing Company
Bigelow Brewing Company opened to the public May 2014 operating on a 3 barrel(bbl) brew house in a refurbished horse barn as the 47th brewery to be licensed in the state of Maine. September 2016, after a year long expansion project, the current 3bbl system will be replaced with a 15 bbl system, increasing production10 fold. With heavy focus on supporting local, the brewery uses malts from Maine Malt House and BlueOx Malting. Oats and wheat are sourced from Maine Grains for several of their beers. Currently, five flagship beers are brewed, Lying Bastard English Pale Ale, Cast Iron Bitch American Pale Ale, Bigelow Brown Ale, Dementia Dog Double IPA, and Jailbreak Chocolate Chili Stout. Seasonal beers include Avery Peak Summer Wheat Ale, Cranberry Peak Ale, Witch’s Tit Pumpkin Ale, and Rowe Road Porter. The property also houses Bigelow Hops where one acre of field has been planted with Centennial and Cascade hops with an additional 5 acres to follow. Wood fired pizza using locally sourced ingredients are served on Fridays and Saturdays.
