Maine Beer Company Expands Distribution to Indiana

FREEPORT, Maine — Maine Beer Company of Freeport, Maine, announces their expansion into Indiana with distributing partner Cavalier Distributing. Maine Beer Company’s highly sought-after IPAs and other styles are now available for limited distribution throughout the state.

Maine Beer Company will be offering Peeper Pale Ale and Woods & Waters IPA on draught in Indiana.

Peeper Pale Ale (5.5% ABV) is the first beer that Maine brewed, beginning in 2009 on a one-barrel system. It has notes of light citrus, raspberry, and blackberry with subtle pine and light breadiness attributes.

Woods & Waters IPA was originally brewed to commemorate the establishment of the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument, and features Maine-grown barley and wheat, and generous amounts hops featuring flavors and aromas reminiscent of the outdoors.

Lunch IPA and MO Pale Ale will be available in package. Lunch IPA, with notes of tropical and citrus fruit, pine, and subtle malt sweetness, is one of the most sought-after and highly rated beers. It was named after a finback whale spotted off the coast of Maine that looked like she had a bite out of her dorsal fin.

MO Pale Ale (6% ABV) is a pale ale with notes of citrus, passion fruit, pine, and slight malt sweetness.

About Maine Beer Company

“Do what’s right. Make great beer. Have fun,” is the mission statement of Maine Beer Company. These simple terms outline their business and brewing philosophy. Founding the company in 2009, brothers David and Daniel Kleban wanted to prove that they could run a business, while still doing what’s right. Through Maine Beer Company’s partnerships with non-profits, their staff develops a personal connection to local communities and the environment. While some businesses judge their success based on financial growth, Maine Beer Company’s success is gauged by how much they are able to give back, with each year in business seeing an increase in their donations to 1% For the Planet non-profits.

Joining 1% For the Planet from the start allowed Maine Beer Company to hone their charitable focus by partnering with like-minded groups both locally and nationally. They use their beer and the brewing community to draw attention to issues that are important to the company. Specific beers are created that highlight 1% For the Planet partners such as the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, Friends of Katahdin Woods & Waters, and the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.
