Austin Street Brewery
April 13, 2014
I took a trip down to Austin Street yesterday, trying finally to get my hands on Jake’s beer. I was pleasantly surprised to see his MK1 Rabbit parked astride the front entrance, making you realize Jake isn’t all just about beer. Before his time as a brewer, he was very much into cars and photography. As one of the principal photographers for PVW magazine, he’s shot some of the very finest VW’s Maine has ever had too offer. His business partner Will, also his brother in law, is himself an avid VW fan. So what better place to kick off my first brewery blog, than a brewery owned by two genuine Maine car enthusiasts. Jake and Will are both starting this brewery venture, where few others dare too. Completely out of pocket. While they both work full time jobs. So you know whatever you’re getting in your glass, Whether it be your style of brew or not, it’s had the upmost care and time taken to develop exactly what these two guys want you to taste. Unfortunately the two beers they had on tap were not exactly my style, but I’m much more of a Hefeweizen fan. However, if you’re looking for a crisp full bodied very tastefully infused hoppy patina pale ale, then look no further! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for these guys down the road, and I am especially looking forward to tasting a certain brew I’ve heard so much about!
