Tuckerman Brewing Company
Kirsten Neves and Nik Stanciu were 24 years old in 1998, and weren’t sure their career paths were heading in the direction they wanted to follow. Nik was a scientist and Kirsten was thinking about law school. Nik & Kirsten moved to the Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire and took jobs at a local ski area.
They wanted to be in business for themselves, but what would it be. They fell in love with the mystique of Mount Washington and Tuckerman Ravine and had been doing some home brewing of beer. Then there was the epiphany. Let’s start a brewery and name it after the summer and fall hiking destination and most famously, spring skiing Mecca – Tuckerman Ravine. As another maker of fine beer would say, “brilliant”!
As our business has grown, we moved into a larger facility at 64 Hobbs Street in 2004 and then into an even bigger building at 66 Hobbs St in 2014, we added extra equipment and we opened our new Tasting Room and tap house. Starting in 2015 we began a Tuckerman Brewing Concert Series featuring great live music (outside under the tent in warm weather and in our Tasting Room during colder months).

Norway Brewing Company
Norway Brewing Company is a family owned microbrewery right off route 26 in Norway, Maine. We have a welcoming and family friendly taproom open year-round, as well as a spacious beer garden during the warmer months. We serve our own delicious house brewed beer and great food made from scratch. Our goal is to use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible; we have reached out to fruit and vegetable growers, livestock and dairy farmers, as well as local grain and hops growers to create a network of producers who supply our chefs and brewers with raw ingredients grown right here in Maine. Come by and say hello. We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Saco River Brewing
Kevin started brewing beer when he was a teenager with his mom, who was macrobiotic so naturally wanted to brew her own beer. It has been a lifelong dream of Kevin’s to open a brewery. Mason Irish had been one of their home brew customers and an avid beer lover, which made for a great business partnership! Kevin had been working on the idea of opening his own brewery in Fryeburg and Mason was up for the adventure. This was back in the summer of 2014. Kevin and Mason started the licensing process in October of 2014. In January we decided to make the move and buy property in Fryeburg that would sustain both the beer store and Brewery. Two years later we are finally a licensed Brewery in The state of Maine. Our first batch of beer was brewed on our smaller pilot system while we wait to have the final touches on our 7-barrel system completed. We are on tap at most of the local restaurants and hope to have our Tasting Room open at the beginning of June. In the Tasting room you will be able to sit down, relax and enjoy a great beer on tap or take a growler or two to go.
Kevin is a local builder; Ruth works at Pine Tree School in Conway. Kevin and Ruth also own and manage The Good Beer Store in Fryeburg.
Mason is an Arborist by trade and happily married to his wife Jen who is an occupational therapist at Snow School here in Fryeburg, Maine. They have two young girls who attend Pine Tree Elementary in Conway NH. Mason and Jen are outdoor enthusiast whether it be hiking, biking or skiing!

Black Cove Beverages
Morécello™ is a blackberry cello made by a generations-old secret family recipe that preserves the taste of fresh-picked blackberries. It is akin to limoncello but far tastier, far healthier, and without the acidity. It may very well be the healthiest thing you can buy in a liquor store.
As a digestivo, it is traditionally enjoyed ice cold in small servings after your meal to settle the stomach. But there are also numerous cocktails in which it is the star ingredient or plays a supporting role. And its almost syruppy consistency lends it well to use in desserts and other foods.

South Portland Wine Company
SoPo Wine Co is a wholesale distributor of wine and beer in the wonderful state of Maine. We started in 2005, with the idea that we would only sell wines that we wanted to drink.
I sometimes call it a cult more than a business. Everyone that works here is fully vested in offering the highest quality product and the most efficient service possible. What we do isn’t so much by choice but a calling. Wine is really cool, all that history and geography.
If you are a consumer wanting to know where to find our wines & beers in Maine, give us a call, we can direct you to your nearest retailer.

We won’t sell it, if we won’t drink it!
