  • About Baxter Brewing Co.

    Baxter Brewing Co. is a Maine-based craft brewery which is the first of its kind in New England to can all of its beer. Located in Bates Mill in the up-and-coming community of Lewiston/Auburn, ME, Baxter Brewing Co. currently distributes its flavorful and unique craft beers in ME, MA, NH & VT both in six-pack and on draught. The brewery features an in-house retail shop and Tap Room where you can purchase our beer and sweet schwag on-site, enjoy tours and tastings as well as regular special events. To find a retailer near you, visit our Can Finder.

    Why cans? The reason we chose to can our beers, rather than the traditional brown glass bottles more often associated with craft beer, is three-fold:

    1. Cans are better for the environment. Our cans, manufactured at Ball Corp., are made of 50% post-consumer recycled aluminum, and are infinitely recyclable. Americans are at least twice as likely to recycle aluminum as they are glass, so our packaging will continue to help the environment. Cans require less energy to create than glass bottles and less fuel to ship to the brewery, since empty cans weigh far less than empty bottles.
    2. Cans are better for the beer. The beer in our cans has never seen UV light, which spells death for fresh beer. Every glass bottle, regardless of its color, will let UV light in over time, resulting in “skunked” beer. Anything you drink from a glass bottle will be less fresh than the same beer in a can. Our dissolved oxygen levels are much lower than similar beers in bottles (helping the beer maintain freshness) and our packaging cools down much faster, so you can be drinking the beer sooner!
    3. Cans can go where glass cannot. The park, the pool, the beach, the golf course, the disc golf course, the sailboat; camping, hiking, fishing, or just lounging in the hammock. Think about it, cans can go where glass cannot.
