Flight Deck Brewing opened to the public in early 2017, with the drive to provide greater-Brunswick with a destination brewery, casual social gathering space, and family-friendly venue.
Located in the former Small Arms Range of the redeveloped Brunswick Naval Air Station (now called Brunswick Landing), our unique and Tasting Room was named "Best in Maine" by Down East Magazine.
With a constantly evolving tap list, food trucks, regular live music, and plenty of space to hang out with your dog (and/or human kids, too), we hope to see you soon!
WHAT MAKES OUR BEER UNIQUE:
1. 100% of our beer is made with 100% renewable energy. We achieve this by making beer with electricity, and sourcing all of our electricity from sources which include on-site solar panels, anaerobic biodigestion (Brunswick sewage -> methane -> electricity), and renewable credits. Approximately 50% of our electricity comes from sources right here on Brunswick Landing (the rest is grid-spruced, and offset with credits); in time, 100% will. When the power goes out, Flight Deck will carry on!
2. We love buying local. A lot of our malt comes from barley grown in Aroostook County, and malted about 15 minutes away from our brewery at Blue Ox Malthouse. While Maine's hop crop is small and growing, we've produced beers with locally grown hops - including from Brunswick's first commercial hop yard, Woodside Hop House!
3. Nothing is ever "done". Advancements in commercial brewing technology are happening at a wicked fast pace. By staying on top of new technology and practices, we constantly look for ways to produce a better, tastier, more sustainable brew.
4. We're the only brewery located in a former shooting range (that we know of). If you find another one, put us in touch - we'd love to start a club.
