Dave and David Rowland, Father and Son, have been brewing for years and have dreamed of opening their own brewery. What would become Some Brewing Company had been in planning for years, but it would take an unfortunate event to be the catalyst. David, a high school history teacher, lost his job due to budget cuts in June of 2011 and began searching in vain for another position. As the months went by and more and more teachers were out of work, David’s future in education seemed bleak at best. With encouragement from family and friends, Dave and David began exploring opening a brewery in earnest. Its always been a dream, and what better time than now?
By May of 2013 brewery space had been procured, the Town of York was on board by June, equipment had been ordered, and by August Some Brewing Company began build-out while they waited for their Brewer’s Notice to be approved. In October 2013 the government “shutdown” put a hold on everything. Luckily, the Brewers Notice was approved immediately after it ended. By November, beer was being brewed and Some Brewing Company is planning on opening its doors in December. Through hardship, a dream was realized and they couldn’t have done it without the support of their family and friends.
Look out for some big hoppy beers as well as twists on traditional styles. We look forward to sharing some locally crafted beers with Southern Maine and beyond. Cheers.
