Despite fears of apocalyptic plagues and full economic collapse, demand for FMB beer continues to remain high!
Two weeks ago, brewing at First Mile was put on hold indefinitely. With the state-wide mandatory closure of all restaurants and bars, our pipeline for beer distribution was effectively halved. Also, with a storage cooler brimming with product, the need for new beer any time soon seemed highly unlikely.
What we didn't expect was the meteoric surge in demand for beer in cans!
Along with brewing more beer, Nate and Ezra have been busy repackaging kegged beer into cans to meet the many requests for home delivery, as well as to maintain stock at the many retail outlets that continue to remain open. In fact, along with our newly-established online store, customers can now find our cans at Paradis Shop n' Save, at both their Fort Kent and Madawaska locations!
Along with the continued support of our retail partners, the FMB taproom is still open for take-out orders, with abridged hours, Wednesday through Saturday. Also, if you find yourself enjoying one of our delicious canned beverages in a socially responsible (read: distant) manner, give us a shout-out on social media with the hashtag: #showusyourFMBcans
Once again, we thank you all for your unfaltering patronage during these trying times. Exciting things are on the way, so stay tuned!
