Co-Founder & Head Brewer
Lone Pine Brewery
Lone Pine Brewing Co., a relative newcomer to Maine’s craft brewing scene, already plans to quadruple production next year to more than 7,000 barrels in the former Sebago Brewing Co. location in Gorham.
Lone Pine bought the brewery in a Gorham industrial park last week. It announced the purchase on its Facebook page Monday afternoon.
Lone Pine plans to move into the 12,000-square-foot brewery early next year and start production at the end of January, Lone Pine co-founder John Paul told the Bangor Daily News. Sebago Brewing will remain in the facility until the first weeks of 2018, then move into a new and much larger facility nearby, according to the Facebook post.
“We haven’t been able to give our customers the quantities they want,” Paul said of the expansion. “This will make our core brands more accessible, plus we can expand with new beers.”
The brewery, which started 16 months ago in Portland’s East Bayside area, brews a dozen beers now, mostly American ales, IPAs and pale ales. Paul said he hopes to add more types of beers, including sours, which have become popular lately.
