Gardiner, Maine. An Augusta suburb of nearly 6,000 people, Gardiner is bordered by Pleasant Pond and the Kennebec River. The brewery overlooks that same river.

The owners, at least one of which owns a local pub, came together to bring some life and vitality, through craft beer of course, to downtown Gardiner. Perhaps we can make a summertime trip to Bateau, pending things calm down in the world a bit.

Things We've Written

Brewery Logos are (sometimes) the best.

Good branding is a cornerstone of any business. Craft beer drinkers want to know your brewery's mission, they want to be part of your community, and they want the artisanal stature of your beer to show up in your physical artwork, including your cans, your taproom walls, and most importantly, your brewery logo.

The Shower Beer, the pre-gaming ritual where you gulp an ice cold beer during your hot shower

Shower beers aren't just for pre-gaming college kids and dude bros. Naw, the truth is that showering with a beer has existed for a long, long time.

What is the best beer for brats?

Such a good question for fall, as nothing says NFL Football Sundays like grilling up a dozen flavorful beer brats for the game. Sure, burgers and ketchup-drenched hot dogs are acceptable fare, but why settle for second place when you can boil brats and sweet onions in your favorite beer? Besides, bratwurst, like your liver on Sundays (from 1pm-4pm), could use a good beer bath.
