Oak Pond Brewery (OPB) opened in 1996 as the first brewery in 115 years in Skowhegan, Maine. The brewhouse, a 14 barrel system from Prince Edward Island, Canada, is housed in a converted chicken barn on Oak Pond Road. In 2003, Don and Nancy Chandler of Canaan became the new owners of the microbrewery, which is now family owned and operated.
Unlike many microbreweries, OPB produces aged lagers as well as ales. These beers are classic old world styles using only the purist ingredients; two row malted barley, imported and American hops, ale and lager yeast strains, and well water.
At the brewery, six beers are always on tap including special seasonal brews. Our product is truly hand crafted with all brewing, fermenting, conditioning, and bottling done on the premises.
