History

Kennebec River Brewery, established in 1996, offers a seasonal selection of handcrafted ales all crafted at our on-site brewery at Northern Outdoors Adventure Resort in The Forks, Maine. What started as a hobby to home-brewing river guide Jim Yearwood turned into a 500 barrel capacity brewery, with seven beers on tap and a full-service restaurant. Brewmaster Mike McConnell uses two-row malted barleys, the majority of which are locally sourced and malted at Blue Ox Malt House in Lisbon Falls, Maine. With a full restaurant on site at our outdoor adventure resort, you can enjoy these beers at our lodge after a day whitewater rafting or snowmobiling the area trails!
