Our mission is to source the finest ingredients to brew the best beer. We work with amazing farmers around the Northeast who are truly growing some of the most fantastic hops, barley, and wheat in the United States. Sourcing directly from farms, we're able to help drive an amazing resurgence in sustainable agriculture in the Northeast, farming practices that put quality and flavor first and foremost.
With roots in home brewing back in the 90s, brewer Jon Cadoux set about combining his love for beer with an ethic for sustainability. Whenever possible, he would go out and find ingredients from local organic farmers for his homebrews. It was a defining day when Jon discovered that you don’t need to sacrifice flavor for sustainability, but that better ingredients actually made the beer more delicious.
Fortunately it wasn’t hard to find good people on brew days to experiment and enjoy the fruits of their labor. From longtime friends to college buddies, and even his brother, a kinship was forged to share in this quest to make delicious organic beer. Many of those people are still part of the company today.
Now, brewing out of Portland, Maine, we’re proud to be part of a craft beer renaissance. It’s an exciting time for American craft brewers, who are creating some of the best beers in the world. Peak is contributing to this movement with contemporary takes on traditional styles of beer, and innovative flavors that have never been brewed before. If you read about our beers, you’ll see we love to collaborate with other local purveyors, organic farmers, creative chefs, and like-minded organizations to create a tasty beer in the best way possible. In 2009, Peak helped Maine farmers cultivate commercial hops, the first such harvest since 1880. We take great pride in the fact that these hops were organic.
Today there are over 48 organic hop farms in the US, and that number is growing every year. The acreage of organic grain being grown is expanding at an equally exciting rate, and we're proud to say that annually we help keep 205,775 lbs (93.45 TONS) of toxic persistent pesticides and chemicals off the soil. That number is growing every year, and as Peak continues to grow, the footprint of sustainable farming, and ultimately fresher and more flavorful ingredients continues to grow as well. Cheers!

First came Fresh Cut, next came the nationally acclaimed Super Fresh, and now, Peak Organic Brewing Co. further perfects their line of specialty pilsners with Happy Hour pils. A leader in the craft beer community since helping to re-establish the pilsner as a staple for craft beer enthusiasts, Peak’s latest offering is a meticulously crafted beer that is remarkably clean and thirst quenching.
Peak Organic Brewing Co. is releasing two new iterations of their flagship Peak IPA, elevating the pine and citrus characteristics to their most flavorful levels yet. Evergreen IPA & Crush IPA each begin with the bright, floral characteristics of Peak IPA, but use brand new blends that are designed to highlight two ends of the hop spectrum – pine and citrus.
If Peak is said to have a cult following, it’s likely due to the brewery’s Summer offering – Summer Session. Peak has released Summer Session for 5 straight years, each iteration showcasing the unique qualities of that years’ hop harvest. A kolsch-style wheat beer, Summer Session combines the crispness and drinkability of a wheat beer with the bright, citrus aromatics of a West-Coast pale ale. It’s everything you could ever want in a porch-drinking, boat-lounging, or beach-going beer – aroma, flavor, and crispness.
Peak Organic Brewing Co. is releasing a brand new Spring offering that is a true testament to the flavor of their local, organic ingredients. High Note is a Belgian White Ale featuring local wheat grown by Thor Oechsner at Oechsner Farms in Newfield, NY.
Hands got dirty for the 2016 release of Ginger Saison, the flagship beer of Peak’s Saison Series. Last fall, the entire company visited Charlie’s Redhouse Farm in Winchendon, Massachusetts to take part in this year’s ginger harvest, alongside farmer Kees Overgaag. With rakes, buckets and brushes in hand, the Peak team dug through rows and rows of the amazingly pungent crop, adding an extra personal touch to this year’s batch of Ginger Saison.
Peak and The City Bakery are thrilled to announce the release of their annual holiday collaboration, the Holiday Saison. Both Peak and The City Bakery have their ethos rooted in a passion for using the finest quality ingredients to create the freshest and most flavorful products. With that shared passion as the centerpiece for their collaboration beer – a dark malted, spiced Saison brewed with a blend of The City Bakery’s famous holiday spices – the two companies hope to showcase an amazingly flavorful, complex sensory experience.
Peak Organic Brewing once again takes a unique approach to seasonal releases, marrying a Winter beer with a hop-forward Session IPA. As the colder weather approaches and beer drinkers are greeted by rich, roasty stouts and porters, Peak is excited to mix it up with their Winter Session – a dry-hopped dark wheat ale, combining the delicious fruity hoppiness of a session IPA with the rich, toasty body of a classic Winter ale.
PORTLAND, MAINE – Peak Organic Brewing is set to release one of their most flavorful and experimental beers of the past 5 years, and it’s coming in the surprising form of a pilsner.

Owned by employees and powered by wind, New Belgium has long touted its commitment to the social good. The latest designation the company is after, though, is one that has been seemingly celebrated and challenged in equal measure. New Belgium is in the process of becoming non-GMO verified.
Peak Organic Brewing’s Citrus Saison stretches the bounds of the saison style in most refreshing of ways. As a follow up to their Ginger Saison release, the Citrus Saison puts a twist on a light Belgian farmhouse ale by blending in organic lemon and lime, creating a beer that has a truly unique balance of citrus and spice characteristics.
Moving the country-wide explosion of sessionable beers forward, the Peak Organic Brewing Company has released the NEW Peak Nitro Stout – a soft 4.7% Nitro Stout with a toasty black malt flavor and an airy mouthfeel.
