Monhegan Brewing Company
Monhegan Brewing Company is a family owned and operated small brewery. Owned by Matt and Mary Weber, residents of Monhegan Island, and also Mary's father, Danny McGovern.
Danny began his brewing career in 1992 when he opened Lake St. George Brewing Company. He went on to brew at other midcoast Maine breweries for the last 20 years prior to taking the plunge into brewery ownership again. A respected member of the Maine brewing community, Danny (a self-proclaimed hophead) specializes in delicious "big" IPAs and spectacular malt-forward stouts. He oversees every brew at Monhegan Brewing Company while passing on his craft to Matt and Mary.
Our craft brewery is located on Lobster Cove road on the edge of the village. Adjacent to Matt and Mary's house and Matt's lobster trap yard, ours is a 7 barrel system and likely the only one in the U.S. you can't drive a car to!
We use a variety of local and European malts and a wide array of hops, some grown right on the island. The local farmer's co-op uses our spent mash to fertilize and mulch their numerous plots and also their hop yard.
We brew 8 months a year, April through the end of November, with the last few batches aging over the winter months.
