We have brought several friends for the tour and every one of them has loved it. It is a great way to spend a couple of hours with friends. Take the tour and then head... More

Kind of out of the way, but worth the effort! There's always something great on tap, test batches from their workers - along with their regular line. The tap room is small and can get crowded, but on weekends they open up the canning room for overflow. Great beer!

I had tried the Baxter brews a few years ago in the backpacker variety pack and was not impressed. However, when trying the brews in the taproom I was pleasantly surprised. The small batch beers were great especially the smoked lager. Highly recommend and can't wait to come back in October.

I stopped in by chance on a Thursday evening. I sat at the bar and tried their everyday brews. It was a nice selection and they were well built. Each one had good flavor and felt good in my mouth. I tried their small batch series and was impressed with how random these beers were. PB&J Stout was one of... More

Ezra gave me a tour and made great recommendations for the tasting. The tasting room offers a lot to do and a fun place to hang out. Bring friends and enjoy the experience!

The brewery is in a repurposed mill---in fact, there are dozens of old mill-turned-new-businesses in Lewiston. Small tasting/drinking room out front seating maybe a dozen people. Looks like they give afternoon tours--and privately arranged tours. We just stopped in for a look-see and a flight. Okay beer. Looked like a fun place. Might be easier to buy their stuff at... More

This little gem was worth a stop on the Maine beer trail. It's hands down the best IPA I've had and surprisingly, it was from a can. The Brewers will passionately educate you on why a can is better than a bottle. Aside from being socially responsible, it maintains the beers freshness like..as they put it...a mini keg! Brilliant!
