We sat at the bar today for lunch. The bartender was very attentive. We had the buffalo calamari for an appetizer and the lamb burger and French dip sandwich. All were amazing! We will be back

Grittys, you have been my favorite brewpub for nearly two decades, but your Auburn location has a problem, either the bar is oversized or the bar stools are undersized. Either way, lunch today was uncomfortable. Oh , and a napkin would have been dandy.

Description
Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-five years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
