The Maine Dream Team-up Project: Gene Beck

Welcome to Nocturnem Draft Haus. Our mission is to serve our guests the finest beers from Maine, the US and abroad paired with some artisan-style, simply prepared, locally sourced food. We are not pretentious. We are down to earth. We are not beer snobs. We are adventurers. We are a collection of many walks of life, seeking better enjoyment out of our beverage purchases. We simply strive to find better offerings than are mass marketed to us every day. We are however a place where all will feel comfortable. A place where sharing, discussion and tasting is encouraged. A place to broaden your horizons into the realm of the beer world.




Question 1: What is your all Maine brewery dream team-up? And why?

Allagash/Oxbow-I’d like to see a Koelschip beer from this one. I think the guys at Oxbow have a great sense of development. That coupled with Allagash’s knowhow, Koelschip and barrel aging expertise.


Question 2: What would your Maine + U.S Brewery Team-up look like?

  1. Maine Beer Co, Marshall Wharf, Green Flash & Russian River. The ultimate East Coast/West Coast hop throw down.
  2. Allagash & Jolly Pumpkin-Barrel aging at its best!
  3. Marshall Wharf/Deschutes/Three Floyds–The Lord get Sexy in the Abyss

Sorry-got stuck on this one


Question 3: What would your Maine + International Brewery team up look like?

Gneiss Brewing/Weihenstephaner– Newest wheat beer brewery meets the oldest brewery in the world.


Question 4: Free for all! Anything goes here as long as there is 1 Maine brewery involved.

Allagash/Cantillon/Jolly Pumpkin/Struise-what could possibly go wrong?
