Tributary Brewing Company, Kittery, ME


Tributary Brewing Company just opened at the beginning of September 2014. This brewery has been eagerly anticipated in the Seacoast region. The company is owned by a husband and wife team,  Galen and Tod Mott, that’s why everyone is so excited about this brewery.



Sheila, Jim and Mark


Mark’s parents were up to visit and we were out and about, so we decided to stop in a Tributary and try some beers.



Our tasting:

Pumpkin Ale
Earthy taste with pumpkin spices but not too strong.



our tray of three flights (Sheila and Jim shared)


Oatmeal Stout
Nice smell – stouty caramel. A smooth beer with a good taste. Sheila doesn’t normally like dark beers but she actually liked this one.

Pale Ale
Good pale ale, subtle taste, smooth, a slightly fruity/ melony taste. It was dry hopped with citra and a few others, maybe that is the ‘little extra taste’.

Hop Harvest
Hoppy but balanced flavor. Mark was excited to try this wet hopped beer, and was happy, a good flavorful beer. Sheila liked it too.



Jim making sure Sheila took it easy.


One of bartenders came over to check on us to see if everything was good. We were able to ask a few questions at that point, which was perfect because it was Galen, one of the co-owners.

We got our sample flights at the bar, but went over to sit on a church pew and a few chairs around a coffee table.




They also have 3 picnic tables set up on the other side.




The bar can seat about 8 people.



Brewery dog and some comfy chairs.


They have a setup which is becoming common among micro brews. A cool atmosphere with plenty of seating where you can go and drink some good beer.




They have plenty of parking, and the Belle’s on Wheels food truck sets up every other weekend if you want to grab some food, you can bring it into the brewery if you want. They also have live music most weekends.


We will definitely be back, and we are excited to see what else will be coming out from this brewery.


Check them out on Facebook, their website isn’t up and running yet.
