Maine beer company Keystone Brewing is planning to expand its brewpubs across the country, and the brewery will be the first of its kind to make its beers in a non-traditional brewing process.
Keystone announced Wednesday that it will open a brewery in Maine, as part of a new partnership with a Maine-based microbrewery that’s been working to bring the craft beer scene to Maine for a number of years.
Keystone plans to open its first brewpub in Bangor in 2019, with plans to expand to other markets soon.
The Maine brewery will use a process called mash fermentation that is traditionally used in Belgium to produce the beer.
It will be an independent craft beer, Keystone says, with its brews available only at the brewery and on tap.
The company will also be working with local food and beverage makers, and has partnerships with local restaurants, restaurants and grocery stores.
