In 2005 Gritty’s 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.

Beer on Tap
Black Fly Stout, ABV: 5%
Black Fly Stout is an opaque black-colored brew with a cream-colored head. First there is a rush of mild roasted malt and subdued black currant fruitiness, then the roasted malt kicks things up a notch by unleashing an even burnt charcoal bitterness. Malt sweetness holds this brew together in the beginning, then the dryness sets in to make the mouth beg for more. Lingering suggestions of espresso and vague chocolate flavor make up the end. We use six different grains to brew this dark masterpiece and we balance the full palate with Oregon Willamette and Yakima Clusters hops. The Alström Brothers at Beer Advocate Magazine gave Gritty's Black Fly Stout a perfect 100 score and had this to say about our Stout: "One of the top stouts brewed in the US, very well balanced and is even more heavenly on nitro-tap. Certainly a stout lover's stout..."
Best Bitter, ABV: 5%
Best Bitter was the first beer we brewed at our Portland brewpub. This true English classic has been the anchor of our draft selection ever since. Best Bitter is copper-colored, smooth and a little crisp with malty flavors of toasted grain and some residual sweetness that tastes a little caramel then fades to a slight hop bitterness. Make sure you don't drink this brew too cold; it will mask all of the true Bitter style flavors. We use Yakima Golding hop flowers when we brew this beer.
Pub Style Pale Ale, ABV: 5%
"Original Pub Style captures what made people fell in love with craft brewing in the first place: a fresh, classic pale ale with plenty of hop character," says Brewmaster Ed Stebbins. Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied beer with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity undertone. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your pint glass.
maine maple porter, ABV: 5.2%
A big thanks to Shane from Maine Backwoods Maple Syrup in Dixfield for their wonderful Maine made Maple Syrup! The porter features a delicious balance between the malt and maple syrup, and tastes like liquid buckwheat pancakes in a glass!
Special Oatmeal Stout, ABV: 7.6%
One of the first signs of Spring is the release of Gritty’s SOS just in time for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations! A complex grain bill coupled with traditional East Kent Goldings hops delivers a powerful punch to your taste buds. Notes of English toffee, expresso coffee & Crème Brule linger on the palate, courtesy of the oats used in the grain bill.
