Weekly Updates

Keep up to date with this weeks talks from the brewery. Here’s to you.

  • LAST CALL FOR MERCH (T-SHIRTS AND SWEATSHIRTS)
    T-SHIRT AND SWEATSHIRT ORDERS GO IN NEXT WEEK (WE’VE EXTENDED THE PRE-ORDER DATE TO HOPEFULLY GATHER A FEW MORE ORDERS). T-Shirts – Two different graphics and two different colors (Heather Canvas Red and Heather Navy). Shirts are crew neck and a cotton/poly blend. They come unisex sizing (which I’m told means that they may run a bit larger for traditional women’s sizes and a bit smaller for men’s sizes) so take that into consideration when ordering. For what it’s worth, I tried several on and felt they fit true to size for me. Cost: $30 (pre-order $25) Sweatshirts – Full zip hoody. We have not chosen a particular color yet, but we will confirm with you before we order. Cost $50 (pre-order $45) Glasses – We have a limited number of FBB glasses on hand, 13oz Belgian and 16oz Can glasses. We have these at the brewery so you can buy them when you come in to pick up beer or send us an email and we will set them aside for you. Cost $8 Hats – We are still working on a design for two different hat options. I can say we will have a full-canvas hat and a trucker’s hat. More to come soon. Pre-order deadline: We are asking for folks to pre-order and pay before then and save $5. We will order a limited number in each size to have on hand at the brewery for sale throughout the year. These will take approximately 6 weeks to arrive. You can simply respond to this email and we will confirm with you before ordering. As always, we like to support our local business friends, so we will be ordering these items from Inner Sense Screenprinting in Searsport. Cheers! -FBB
  • Saturday (4/13) Growler Fills
    Howdy Friends! We will happily fill some or all of your April share tomorrow. Just as a reminder, growler fills/pickups will occur every Wednesday evening from 6-8 and Saturday morning from 10-12 (During the summer months we will modify the Wednesday pickup from 7-9). We will also offer a downtown pickup two Saturdays each month after 1:00. THE BEER: OMT (Old Man Time) is our flagship IPA. One of our first recipes, it is an American IPA by style with the hop bitterness and flavor of a West Coast IPA along with the hop aroma of an East Coast IPA…We like to call it a Midcoast IPA. 95% of the grains used in this beer come from Maine farmers. Chompski is a recipe inspired by the great Belgian IPA, Houblon Chouffe. A Belgian Golden Strong Ale by style, this pale, complex, effervescent ale is highly attenuated and offers hoppy and fruity notes of lemon and grapefruit. 100% of the grain used in this beer comes from Maine farmers. Dog Island Dark is our Winter Lager from the Munich Region. A Munich Dunkel by style, this rich and malty dark beer offers bready-toasty flavors with hints of chocolate. Bonus points for those who know where Dog Island is in Belfast. 90% of the grain in this beer comes from Maine farmers. Smokin’ Rope is one of our favorite recipes that has taken on several variations (and names) over the years.

    Hey all, feel free to come by on Wednesday and toast another year of FBB with us. This will coincide with our usual Wednesday night growler fills and we will add some light food and live music…That’s right…Fresh of his European tour where he has been dubbed the next, next David Hasselhoff, we welcome the musical talents of Stan Farrell https://wizbesongs.com.
