Hearty Classic Food & Handcrafted Beers from the Kennebec River Brewery


Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at our full-service restaurant at Northern Outdoors in The Forks, Maine. Our restaurant shares space in our classic, open-timbered main lodge with the Kennebec River Brewery — brewing fresh Maine craft beer since ’96, the only Maine Beer Trail destination at an Adventure Resort. Fuel up with some Carrabassett Coffee and a Hiker’s Breakfast before a day on the river or the trails; and kick back after your adventures with a Magic Hole IPA and a Woodsman Burger.

What’s on the menu?


The Kennebec River Brewpub’s restaurant menu is inspired by the flavors found in our craft beers. We take great pride in our from-scratch kitchen which utilizes the freshest ingredients available. Our fried food is hand-battered, and all of our chicken and haddock is marinated in fresh Kennebec River Brewery lager. We proudly support local businesses by featuring Pineland Farms Maine-raised all natural beef burgers, fresh Backyard Farms tomatoes and Maine- roasted Carrabassett Coffee. We are committed to crafting fresh, flavorful, high-quality food and beer for the enjoyment of our guests. Cheers!
