We are fortunate to have so many wonderful local breweries that have captured the magic of the Maine blueberry and craft the perfect brews featuring this flavor. Many of these are seasonal with limited availability so grab them now while you can. These are a few of our favorites. Please contact your sales rep for more information

  • Atlantic Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale
    A light fruit ale, made with Maine wild blueberries. Our addition of fresh Maine wild blueberries in this light ale yields a subtle blueberry aroma, without the sweet aftertaste. A mixture of the following Mutton malts, pale, crystal, and Munich, are combined with wheat to give this ale its lighter body, and we only use minimal amounts of Target and Willamette hops.
  • Lake St. George Kerplunk! Blueberry Sour
    We kettle-soured this light ale to give a mild tartness that accentuates the wild Maine blueberry sweetness. A fun fact: Kerplunk! is inspired by the beloved children’s book “Blueberries for Sal” by Robert McCloskey.
  • Honeymaker Blueberry Mead
    Rose-hued, this mead balances the delicate elements of honey from Maine’s most pristine farmlands with the tart notes of wild coastal blueberries. Medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing, it’s an entirely local, artisanal rosé alternative — ideal for summer evenings or a taste of the harvest during the long winter months..
  • UFO Maine Blueberry
    Maine Blueberry is brewed with, you guessed it, real Maine blueberries for the authentic taste of Maine’s signature berries. Notes of blueberry start with Maine Blueberries inviting aroma and continue with a wave of sweet blueberry flavor in each sip. Balanced by a light body and crisp finish. A satisfying and refreshing ale dedicated to the best wild blueberries around.
