The Atlantic Brewing Company began as Acadia Brewing in 1990. At first the brewery was located inside the Lompoc Cafe in downtown Bar Harbor and had a maximum capacity of just one barrel at a time. Within a few years the demand for our beers had grown so much that we moved the brewery two doors down from the restaurant and increased our capacity to seven-barrel batches. However, by 1998, we had outgrown that facility as well and so we moved again – this time to our current location on the Knox Road. Our estate brewery was built on the grounds of a 19th century Maine farmstead, that employs native vegetation and local stonework.

    Our tasting room is open daily from late May to mid October. Tours are offered every day in season at 2, 3, and 4pm and are limited to 25 people per tour. Spots for the tour are filled on a first-come first-served basis so make sure to arrive early! Tickets are distributed one hour before tour time.

    Our brewery is located minutes from downtown Bar Harbor, and we are open to visitors throughout the summer season. Built on a ten acre Maine farm, the property was designed to create an experience where visitors could learn about small-scale beer production in a country setting. The grounds house our production facilities, tasting room, and Mainely Meat BBQ – where the full line of Atlantic Brewing beers is available on tap. Our new Pilot Brewery at 52 Cottage Street in downtown Bar Harbor features innovative small-batch beers and local food options for the Atlantic enthusiast.
