Watershed, Brews, and Beer

Come join in on raffles, prizes and of course, beer! Learn more about Maine’s water quality protection efforts with the Maine Brewshed Alliance and the Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission.

The Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission provides clean drinking water for the Lewiston and Auburn area by maintaining the quality of the water through education, outreach and watershed management efforts.

Baxter Brewing Co. opened in 2010 in the iconic Lewiston Bates Mill. They were the first brewery in New England to can all its beer and have continued to produce craft beers that embody the grit, determination, and passion of Maine.

National Drinking Water Week
May
5
to May 11

National Drinking Water Week

We’re excited to support our partner, Sebago Clean Waters, in their brewery collaborative for national drinking water week. See below for more info, and find a full schedule of offerings at participating breweries here.

Visit a local brewery to learn about the connection between forests, water, and beer

Much of the land that drains to Sebago Lake is covered with forest.  These forests act as a filter, naturally producing exceptional water quality. Yet only 10% of this forest is conserved – meaning development could eventually cause lower water quality and higher water treatment costs.  A new effort called Sebago Clean Waters (SCW) is underway, linking the community to forest conservation – to protect our water, wildlife, and way of life.

Dozens of local breweries rely on this water, too. Beer is 90% water; delicious beer begins with outstanding water. Select Maine Brewshed Alliance members are collaborating with PWD, SCW, and Loon Echo Land Trust to provide beautiful slideshows and information in tasting rooms at various times throughout the week. Staff from these organizations will be available to answer questions at some locations.
