Auburn Brew Pub


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. Real Ale has returned to Central Maine!

    Auburn 1869 Pale Ale
    – In honor of Auburn’s 150th Anniversary, Gritty’s brewed this American pale ale called “Auburn 1869.” This unique, small-batch pale ale features generous hoppy notes up-front with a nice malty balance on the end.  We locally sourced the malts from the Blue Ox Malt House in Lisbon Falls, Maine and the hops were grown at Aroostook Hops Farm in Aroostook County, Maine.  Auburn 1869 Pale Ale comes in at 4.8% ABV.
    Where’s there “Fire,” – there’s a smoked Marzen-style lager on tap.
    Our “Fire” lager features a touch of smoke from Beech Wood smoked malts along with Vienna and Munich malts. It’s brewed with Saaz hops and is purposely hazy, which gives this brew a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It’s a malty-sweet and approachable lager that is also crisp and drinkable. About 5.5% ABV.  On tap now in Auburn.
    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. 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.
