Beer & Wine
It is our honor and privilege to present the mid-coast area with what we believe is a fine selection of locally crafted brews. Our twelve taps will always be flowing with a rotating variety of superior liquids from around the state of Maine. Although quality ales are very important to us, our bar selection includes options beyond beer. We are proud to offer a variety of ciders and meads as well as reds, whites and bubblies. Although we do not offer a full bar, we have come up with a handful of fantastic craft beer and wine cocktails that are sure quench your thirst.
In this section of our site, we will keep you updated on any noteworthy happenings behind the bar including the things that excite us about the craft beer world as well as upcoming events and releases at the Public House.
The Common Wit
Brian and I have both spent some time working within Maine's flourishing craft beer industry. Back in early March, we were graciously given the opportunity to create a collaboration brew with our wonderful friends at Lake St. George Brewing Company in Liberty. After a couple weeks of going back and forth on which style we wanted to create, we settled on something that we thought would please just about everybody. The result is currently pouring through our tap lines as the Sterlingtown House Beer, a smooth, fragrant Belgian style wheat beer. Working alongside Maine brew legend, Dan McGovern, and his protege daughter Elizabeth and her husband Jeff we were able to grow our knowledge about what goes into the process and together we created the Common Wit. Aromas of coriander, orange peel and Meyer lemon peel flow strongly from this lightly hopped ale. The use of red wheat in the brewing process resulted in a unique coloring, not typically associated with a Belgian style wheat beer, we love a good curveball. We encourage everyone who comes through our doors to give this beer a try, we believe it is the perfect summer thirst quencher.
Although it is wonderfully perfect as is, we also offer a slight spin on the Common Wit, as an ode to one of our favorite European countries (Germany), we can make your wheat beer a Radler with the addition of lemonade. The combination is absolutely delicious, just wait until you try it. Cheers!
