Founded in 1998, Sebago Brewing has become Maine’s premier contemporary American brewpub and one of the fastest-growing craft breweries in the state.
With four pubs located throughout Southern Maine and an impressive brand new production facility in Gorham, they clearly demonstrate a refusal to stay with traditions that often can be found in a company with over 20 years in the business.
The 31,000 square foot brewery and a four-vessel, fully-automated, 40-barrel brewhouse more than doubles the size of the facility that had produced their beers for a dozen years. The need for this new modern brewery was made clear with amazing growth over the past several years of their year-round core beers, five seasonal beers and several highly anticipated, limited-edition Single Batch Series beers.
After working in the retail side of beer for over a decade, Tom Madden decided that the time was right to break into producing his own beer. A long-time home brewer and Certified Cicerone, he reconnected with his longtime friend John Paul who had been working in the music industry in California.
Together, they opened Lone Pine in March of 2016 in a former countertop production space in Portland’s East Bayside and quickly enjoyed tremendous success and popularity. In 2018, Lone Pine moved their brewery into the former Sebago Brewing brewing facility in Gorham which has increased their production volume by ten-fold. We will be visiting the new tasting room as well as taking a look at the new production space.
Mast Landing Brewing Company was the very first brewery to locate in the City of Westbrook. They were founded in March of 2016 by Ian Dorsey and Neil Fredrick, friends and alums of the University of Maine. They first started homebrewing together in a Freeport garage on a very small 1-barrel rig. That kit started them in off in Westbrook, but they quickly outgrew that in order to meet demand in Maine and now in Massachusetts. Their location in a massive former tire manufacturing facility gave them plenty of space to grow. They focus on brewing beers that are often light in malt character, but fully flavorful with multiple varieties of hops.
