Maine’s newest brewery opening this Friday

I headed out to Amherst, Maine last night to check out Square Tail Brewing Company before their grand opening, the last time I went they were still under construction.


Since my last trip they’ve finished the brewhouse and completed the tasting room which has an outdoors theme. A short bar with a half dozen stools, some tall tables and one large community table, all constructed by local craftsmen, have been added with room to stand. They have six tap lines, currently only three beers are ready to serve with one more carbonating and others in the fermenter.


Square Tail Brewing Company will open to the public officially Friday, February 27, 2015, doors open at 5pm. They will be open from 2-8pm on Saturday and closed Sunday.

There will be 3 beers on tap for the opening:

  • Lazy Paddle Milk Stout
  • Mooned Loon Pale Ale
  • Caddis Fly Wheat Ale

32oz growler fills are $10 and refills are $8. Also for sale will be hats, shirts and glassware.


The brewery is located at 22 Mill Lane, Amherst, Maine. I have been twice and found it with no problem using my GPS. The driveway is narrow so be patient with any traffic you meet but the yard is plowed and there is plenty of parking.
