Two Gramps Brewing – Gardiner, Maine
Two Gramps Brewing is a microbrewery located in Gardiner, ME that features eight of their brews on tap. The craft brews range from double IPA’s, German pilsners, and Scottish ales to pale ales and cider-like ales. For those looking for a dark, smoky brew- Two Gramps’s “Beam Me Up Scotty” is perfect. For those like myself who prefer a light, somewhat fruity brew- Two Gramps’s “Beane’s Tonic” apple ale is the beverage to try. The more dense and hoppy brews would be the 104 Stars (a double IPA) and Even Steven. These will routinely be switched out with new brews so that a new selection can be trialed at different visits. If you happen to find a brew you enjoy, you have the option of purchasing it in a growler or the smaller growlette so that you may enjoy it from the comfort of your home.
Craft brews aren’t the only items to indulge in while at Two Gramps Brewing. Their food menu is another delightful treasure that your mouth and stomach will thank you for. The Tater Tot Poutine and Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Rosemary Focaccia were positively bursting with flavor. For the main course, I tried their deluxe veggie burger and my family sampled the rest of their hamburgers. I can honestly say it was one of the best veggie burgers I have ever tried. And I will also say this- everything at the microbrewery is perfectly priced! In addition to great tasting food, satisfying and refreshing brews, a homey and trendy locale, and warm and inviting atmosphere- the staff were amazing as well! A restaurant, pub, brewery, or organization can offer a fantastic product, but without a welcoming and friendly team then it doesn’t appeal to me.
Luckily for Two Gramps Brewing they have all that and more! I look forward to seeing how this new, trendy microbrewery does in downtown Gardiner. I suspect it will last for many years to come as it is the perfect addition to a lively and growing community.
Stop by Two Gramps Brewing and try their refreshing home brews and satisfying burgers today!
