Howdy, folks!

It has been quite some time since we last posted one of these, hasn't it? What's it been, a whole season? Fear not, for we have hardly been sitting idly all summer! For example, many of us were busy sipping on a can of Canoe Floater know... floating in a canoe, while others among us were actively crushing a pint or two of Northwoods IPA after a long know...deep in the North Maine Woods...

And yet, among all these summertime shenanigans, we still found ample time to push out more beer than ever before!

Now that we're trading in the sunshine and swim trunks for changing leaves and pumpkin spice lattes, we've got some awesome updates to share with you about what's going on at First Mile Brewing. First and foremost: we've got new merch! From ¾-sleeve baseball tees to sport ½ zips to hunter orange baseball caps, we are newly-stocked with plenty of branded merchandise to suit your autumnal activity requirements—whether that be cashing in on your moose tag, cheering on the local soccer team, or toasting marshmallows by the campfire. Can't make it into our taproom to check out the selection? Go check out our online store instead! Not only has our website's shop been revamped to include our new merchandise offerings, but we are also shipping NATIONWIDE! That's right, now you can purchase that First Mile hoodie you've always wanted and have it delivered to you—in the comfort of your ranch house in Texas, or your houseboat in Florida, or even your communal yurt in northern California!

Also, we recently released a couple of our favorite fall beers: Oktoberfest and Rusty Elbow! These amber-hued beverages are sure to please on these frosty fall evenings that are rapidly becoming more common, whether you choose to grab a pint, here in our taproom, or pick up a 4-pack at one of your local participating stores. Not sure where to find one of these elusive 4-packs? Check out our website, where we provide a growing list of stores and restaurants that offer our brews for sale.

In closing, we thank you all for your persistent and stalwart support. In spite of an on-going global pandemic, First Mile Brewing continues to experience market growth beyond our best expectations—and it's all thanks to your collective imbibery. Remember to leave a like on our Facebook and Instagram pages, and don't forget to #showusyourFMBcans!

Howdy folks! With Maine summer well underway, I need not remind you that a hot, sunny day by the lake is nigh perfected with the addition of some First Mile beer. Yes, everybody knows this already, I understand... but, what you might not know is that we will be serving beer in the taproom from 12-4 this Saturday! Nothing says freedom quite like a growler of Something Witty or a 4-pack of La Creme Biere. Well, perhaps not as well as a bald eagle toting twin AR-15s against an American flag backdrop...but we don't sell those here! So come say hello to Ericka this July 4th, and grab some refreshments for the camp on your way out. Might I suggest trying out our newly-packaged Canoe Floater? (we hear it's Amanda's favorite...)

If you don't happen to find yourself in the taproom on the 4th, no sweat! We supply a number of local stores and restaurants with our exceptional refreshments, so feel free to stop in at any one of these locations instead before the holiday festivities begin:


Now that stores have been reopening steadily over the last month, we have decided to discontinue home delivery. BUT, our online store still remains open, and we are more than happy to ship our merchandise to you--regardless of your location!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and have a wonderful Fourth of July!

An update of the taproom board can only mean one thing: we are finally prepared to reopen the taproom! As of this weekend, after almost 90 days of prolonged closure, we will now be serving beer for consumption on the premises.

Here at FMB, we are beyond ecstatic to once again serve our patrons in-house, whom with great patience and understanding have continued to support our business through these strange times. We must, however, address some important caveats to our reopening process:

1) When can I come to the taproom to grab a delicious and refreshing craft beer?

Starting this weekend, we will be observing the following weekly hours in the taproom:

Monday: Closed

Tuesday: Closed

Wednesday: 3pm - 8pm

Thursday: 3pm - 8pm

Friday: 3pm - 8pm

Saturday: 12pm - 8pm

Sunday: 12pm - 5pm

2) Where can I sit to enjoy my tasty beverage?

We have spent the earlier part of this month preparing an outdoor patio space, adjacent to the taproom, to accommodate your seating needs. Fortunately, nothing pairs better with our beer than a bit of fresh air!

3) Are there measures in place that promote social distancing?

As per state-mandated guidelines, parties will be limited to 8 per table. Unfortunately, parties will not be permitted to commingle with each other. All beer will be served in plastic, disposable cups for your safety and convenience. Each table will be furnished with a bottle of sanitizer spray, and the bartender will clean and disinfect each table additionally in between parties. All staff will be wearing masks while operating behind the bar, and we recommend that our customers use masks at their own discretion (and though it goes without saying, wash your hands often and stay home if you feel sick!)

4) Plastic cups, you say? What if I want to order a flight?

We've got you covered. Our plastic cups come in 4oz-size as well.

5) Can I drink my to-go 4-pack out on the patio?

While situated outside, the patio space acts as an extension of the indoor taproom. Drinking to-go beer is not permitted within the taproom, nor will it be permitted in the patio space.

6) Can I bring food to eat while out on the patio?

Yes! As always, we encourage our customers to bring food to eat while drinking our beer. Feel free to pack a picnic or order in from any of the number of local restaurants that offer delivery.

If you have any other questions, feel free to come in and talk to our bartenders!
