New Brewery Differentiation

MaineBiz has published an article on a new crop of Maine breweries and the approaches they’re taking to differentiate themselves.

With the count now up to 150 breweries in Maine, new craft beer makers are seeking to differentiate themselves from the pack in creative ways, with a focus on niche styles and offering more than just beer.

Playing off a sense of nostalgia for favorite childhood treats, Odd by Nature Brewing, which opened recently in Cape Neddick, focuses on ice cream IPAs, candy beers and pastry stouts. The brewpub also offers beer cocktails.

One of the businesses mentioned in the article, Lucky Pigeon Brewing Company, has announced they plan to open on August 20th. Lucky Pigeon will be Maine’s first dedicated gluten-free brewery. They are located in Biddeford.
