Auburn Brew Pub


Grittys Auburn Christmas Tree with Gritty's coasters

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.
