Austin Street Brewery started with Jake's home brewing hobby quickly moving from a casual day off activity to an outright obsession. The name "Austin Street Home Brewery" started out as way to identify the brews coming out of Jake's garage on Austin St. in Westbrook, Maine. After years of drinking Jakes home brewed beers and seeing the progression from good, drinkable beer to some of the best beer he's ever tasted, Will convinced Jake that it was time to share his beer with more people. It was decided that the name would remain, sans the word "home" and thus "Austin Street Brewery" was born.
We are currently brewing on a 10bbl system at 1 Industrial Way, the building that has paved the way for a few other breweries including Rising Tide and Maine Beer Co. Our beer can be found on draft all around southern Maine, and occasionally bottles make their way out of the brewery as well.
