Knife Edge Brewing, founded in 2022, is a brewery built to celebrate heritage and adventure in the Katahdin region. Brewed at the base of Katahdin on the shore of Millinocket Lake, each beer reflects a natural landmark, trail, adventure, or piece of history in the heart of Maine’s iconic forests.
Knife Edge Brewing is committed to making beer using 100% renewable energy. We meet that goal with a 135 Kilowatt solar array and an all electric brewery and building. We brew with sustainably sourced and where practical, Maine ingredients, serving beer that tastes great and feels good. Knife Edge Brewing supports nonprofits in the region that advance the health and well-being of the community, primarily through outdoor adventure. Knife Edge beer is more than just a beer, it’s an investment in the people, trails, and wild places of the Katahdin region.
