When Odd Alewives Farm Brewery founders John and Sarah McNeil decided to open a brewery, they did so with the motivation to create a unique and engaging beer experience that would combine their talents as brewers, farmers, and artists. After much searching they found the perfect farm, within the historic midcoast Maine village of Waldoboro. The newly renovated 1820’s barn, which now houses the brewery and tasting room, is surrounded by 22+ acres of gardens and forest and offers visitors a beautiful rural setting to gather and celebrate. The farm grows a variety of hops, fruit, herbs and even vegetables all for beer production, ingredients not produced on the farm are sourced locally within the state, so as to capture the taste of a true Maine farmhouse ale.
OAFB’s mission is to create beer that refreshes, and sustains the hardworking body and mind. As a result our farmhouse ales focuses on the honesty of the product, variability of the seasons, locality and purity of the ingredients.
