Meet Strong Brewing Co.
Our company officially opened in 2013, but it was years of imagining and planning that helped us get here.
It started with a home-brew kit and a plan to move to our Vacationland. After our first trip to Maine in 1993 when we found our first micro-brewery we knew we wanted to call Maine home. So in 1999, we packed our minivan with clothing, the kid and his dog and we headed for Blue Hill.
Wow, what a change! But we fell in love with our little rural peninsula with its rich history of fishing, boat building, and farming.
Al continued to home-brew and founded our local home-brew club and we opened our home to community suppers and word spread about the delicious brews we where serving up. In 2012 we started Maine’s first and nations third CSB “community supported brewery”. We sold enough shares and ran a successful Kickstarter to fund our opening!
Our first thought was to be a production brewery and we started self-distributing all over the state but within a year we decided to open the taproom and it has slowly grown into what we have today.
The old taproom has transformed into a kitchen where we now serve wood fired pizza, house made pasta and more a screened in porch was added where beautiful RocksAnne our wood fired bread & pizza oven is now center stage, tons of outside seating options welcoming you to sit and enjoy our laid back yard, stone patio with both dining tables and lounge seating, game area with picnic tables and a pavilion for bi-weekly live music events in the summer months, a family & dog-friendly place where children can play games while parents relax.
We are always in motion to improve your experience when you visit our destination brewery and hope you enjoy your time with us!
