Auburn Brew Pub


  • Gritty's Auburn Maine Craft BeerA
    In 2005 Gritty’s newest location opened on the banks of the Androscoggin River in Lewiston/Auburn. Our Auburn brew pub is a warm and welcoming space in the classic Gritty style; long tavern tables, copper bar top and traditional brick work. The spacious deck features the best riverfront views in town, and our glass-enclosed, storefront brewery brings the working of a true pub brewery right to Main Street. And of course, our kitchen serves up the finest in traditional pub fare.
    Gritty’s Auburn Brew Pub is a convenient stop on your way to four-season fun in Maine’s mountains and lake regions. We’re very proud to be a part of the revitalized waterfront in this historic community. Real Ale has returned to Central Maine!

    Did you say “chocolate”?  
    The Chocolate Porter is on tap in Auburn this month. This small batch brew is a dark, brownish-black color with a pale tan head.  This ale has a very sweet malty aroma. The taste is a mix of notes of chocolate and coffee. Thanks Jay for brewing it again.
    ‘TIS THE SEASON FOR CHRISTMAS ALE.  In stores and on tap now at Gritty’s Freeport, on tap at Portland and Auburn late in November.
    November heralds the return of our holiday seasonal, Christmas Ale.  It’s a robust E.S.B. (Extra Special Bitter) full of holiday cheer.  It scored 97 by Beer Advocate. Christmas Ale has a lovely, dark red/amber color.  The ale has a chocolaty character followed by an earthy hop flavor with a fruity middle-to-end with hints of melon and pear. We brew our Christmas Ale to an original gravity of 1064 (about 6.2% ABV) which gives it a light warming feature.
    You served us, now we’ll serve you. On Veteran’s Day, Saturday, Nov 11th, if you’re active duty military or a veteran you’ll get a free burger, fries and a beverage at any Gritty’s brew pub for lunch or dinner.
    Ready for Black “Flyday”?  While everybody else is  shopping till they drop, you can be snug and warm at the Gritty’s of your choice celebrating “Black Flyday” on Friday, November 24th.  Black Fly Stout and Christmas Ale will be on special. Why go shopping when you can be drinking?
    Gritty’s hours on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 23rd:

    Winter Pub Grub!
    During late November, we’ll introduce the NEW winter menu inserts that complement our regular pub menus at all Gritty’s. There’ll be plenty of comfort food favorites on the new menus, so stop by.
    Don’t miss the Community Pint Night scheduled on Thursday, Nov. 30th with Brayden Bashaw.
    Brayden who just turned 12, started a fundraising effort last year which he has named “Ornaments for Hope.” He collects pinecones, spray paints them, adds ribbons and some twine and then sells them for $2/each. With the money he raises he used to purchase Christmas gifts for the kids at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. Last year he was able to raise $2,000. This year Brayden’s goal is $5,000. With this money he would like to purchase 1 or 2 Brady Buggies (these are specialty wagons that are used in the hospital which allow kids to get around even with their IV poles).
    The “Beer Choir” is back!
    Meet at Gritty’s in Auburn on Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 6pm to grab a bite to eat and 7pm to sing. Anybody can join the choir, so come and let’s sing!
