The Atlantic Brewing Company began as Acadia Brewing in 1990. At first the brewery was located inside the Lompoc Cafe in downtown Bar Harbor and had a maximum capacity of just one barrel at a time. Within a few years the demand for our beers had grown so much that we moved the brewery two doors down from the restaurant and increased our capacity to seven-barrel batches. However, by 1998, we had outgrown that facility as well and so we moved again—this time to our current location on the Knox Road. Our estate brewery, built on the grounds of a 19th-century Maine farmstead, employs native vegetation and local stonework.
This summer we will brew just one batch of National Park CentenniALE! Available in limited quantities CentenniALE, a refreshing pale ale finished with rare centennial hops, will be available at restaurants on Mount Desert Island and at the brewery from May through August to celebrate summer and Acadia National Park!
