D.L. Geary Brewing Co.

Maine's very first micro brewery, The D.L. Geary Brewing Company, sold its first beer, Geary's Pale Ale in 1986. David and Karen Geary had a dream to sell a quality product to the northeast region of the United States. When they opened their operation in 1983 the only other microbreweries were located on the west coast. Their training consisted of many trips to breweries in Scotland and England, researching the ways and recipies of successful brewers who had been drinking and selling beer for much longer than the Geary's.

DL Geary Brewing Co. brews eight different types of beer throughout the year. Its most famous, the Pale Ale, stems from a combination of British pale ale recipes. The pale ale is known for its crisp and fruity taste. The Hampshire Special Ale has a strong malt flavor. London Porter is the brewery's smoothest beer, dark in color and rich in flavor. D.L. Brewing Company has a few seasonal beers. Its Summer Ale is similar to a typical German Beer and it is sold between April and September. Their Autumn Ale emulates British brown ales and their Winter Ale is Geary's version of an Indian Pale Ale.
