If you have been following my blog for a while you have probably read about the Bissell Brothers and their beer The Substance (see photos and review here). It has been almost 9 months since I had this beer and posted this review, long enough for a child to be born. In this case it is not a child but a brewery that is being born. Peter and Noah Bissell (the Bissell Brothers) have taken over the old Maine Beer Co space on Industrial Way in Portland and will be working on opening their brewery over the next few months.
The plan is to provide 4-packs of 16 ounce cans with their double IPA being the premier and flagship beer. If you are one of the few that has been lucky enough to try The Substance you know this is going to be one of the best IPAs on the market when it hits the shelves of your favorite beer store. Be sure to tell your local beer store and bar that they need to carry this beer when it is released.
Over the past 9 months I have met up with Peter and Noah several times at The Thirsty Pig where they both work and they are both great guys. Peter is a professional photographer which I love and Noah has a true passion for brewing beer. In the coming months follow their progress using the links below and wish them luck as they continue down the path of opening a top notch brewery in Portland, Maine.
