Auburn Brew Pub


  • Auburn Gritty's Exterior with Gritty logo signA
    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!

    Wake & Bake Cold Coffee Porter is coming to Gritty’s Auburn during February.
    This fan favorite is a classic Porter, cold brewed with coffee. Hopped with Warrior, Cluster, WGV and US Goldings, then finished with Maine roasted coffee. It comes in around 5.8% ABV. Nice drink’n, with a coffee kick…
    Rye Oh My!
    A Rye India Pale Ale is on tap at Gritty’s in Auburn now . This style of beer has a strong hoppy character comparable to the India Pale Ale. The Rye India Pale Ale is a beer style that uses malted rye grains in the mash ingredients. The addition of rye adds a tangy or spicy character to the beer. We don’t know the ABV yet, but look for this beer to go on tap.
    Scottish Ale comes out just as winter really gets roaring!
    Scottish Ale returns in late December to help you weather the season. Gritty’s Scottish Ale is our interpretation of the robust brews native to Scotland. Generous quantities of Pale malt along with Munich and Caramalts give this ale a deep and complex profile. A few shades darker than our Bitter, with a rich, slightly sweet first impression on the palate that rounds out to a satisfying maltiness with a medium-dry hop finish. At 6.3% ABV it’s hearty but not overwhelming. On tap at all locations!
    Try the IPL, India Pale Lager from Gritty’s in Freeport.
    Our head brewer in Freeport, Greg Sansone formulated & brewed this beer using English two-row lager malt, German lager yeast & a combination of Centennial, Cascade, Citra & Lemon Drop hops. This beer has a crisp taste upfront as a result of a six week laagering & finishes with sharp citrus notes from the American hops.
    What’s in your mystery envelope?
     If you were lucky enough to get one of the Mystery Envelopes during December, bring it back to the Gritty’s in January to see what you won. The envelope MUST still be sealed. Your server will open the sealed envelope to see if you won an instant discount, a free meal, Gritty gear or a Gritty gift card.
    Gritty’s is a great place to watch the Pats in the Super Bowl.  But, if you’re planning a house party instead, give your favorite Gritty’s pub a call before the game to order some wings and a growler of your favorite beer to-go from Gritty’s.
