Kennebec River Brewery Beer Selection

Whitewater Wit

A light bodied, well carbonated Belgian white ale brewed with curacao orange peel and coriander. Traditionally hazy and served with a slice of orange.

Big Mama Blueberry Ale

An amber ale named after the biggest wave on the Kennebec River. Natural blueberry flavor is added at kegging for a great fruity aroma! This is a well-carbonated summer favorite with light malt flavor and a nice crisp finish.

Sledhead Red (Winter Only)

An incredibly smooth red ale with moderate bitterness up front, which gives way to a delightfully malty finish.

Magic Hole IPA

Our flagship ale, this was our first brew ever made in 1997. This copper-colored, American-style India pale ale is crafted with abundant amounts of North American malted barley for a full malt flavor. The aggressive bitter bite comes from a generous infusion of Magnum hops, with late additions of Columbus and Summit adding abundant hop flavor and aroma. Dry hopping with Summit adds to the big hop aroma on this brew.

Penobscot Porter

a smooth and creamy elixir with rich roasted flavor.

Deer-In-The-Head Lite

Our interpretation of an American lager (think Miller, Coors, Bud). Light, crisp and less filling, this is the right choice for those new to microbrews.
