About Us

From summiting peaks to heading upta camp, there are many moments that just go with a Baxter beer.

Since 2011, we’ve been crafting quality, drinkable beer for the Mainer in all of us. The people with a little extra passion, determination, and grit. Inspired by West Coast IPAs, we were determined to craft a beer that captured the essence of Maine with a hop profile reminiscent of those out west. We rolled up our sleeves and got to work on Stowaway India Pale Ale. This iconic IPA set our standard to create beers for everyone, from the hop heads to newcomers. Today Stowaway is the best-selling Maine-made IPA across New England.

We brew each beer, from our Triple IPAs to our Classic Lagers, at the iconic Lewiston Bates Mill. And since the opening of The Pub at Baxter in 2018, we’ve been able to serve new and exciting brews to longtime fans and first-time visitors alike.

What started as the first brewery in New England to can all its beer has grown into a lasting mission to deliver great-tasting, sustainable brews for every type of adventure. So crack that Baxter—here’s to good beer and all that is Maine. Because no matter if you’re from here, or you’re from away when you’re holding a Baxter, you’re one of us.
