Being authentic is important to us. Our beers are brewed in a traditional English style using only the highest quality ingredients like English two-row malted barley and British top-fermenting Ringwood yeast. Our English brewing style results in brews with a distinctive, refreshing taste and crisp finish.
Founded in 1993 on the coast of Maine, our crew brews a full line of award-winning handcrafted ales that capture the spirit of our sea-faring history.
For the full Sea Dog experience, visit one of our brewpubs in Maine (South Portland, Topsham, and Bangor), New Hampshire (North Conway), or Florida (Orlando and Clearwater).

In Maine, the Sea Dog in Topsham occupies a scenic spot on the Androscoggin River. The Bangor waterfront location overlooks the historic Penobscot River. And the South Portland Brew Pub is near the Maine Mall.

Barney was the Sea Dog Brewing Company's apprentice brewmaster and figurehead Sadly he is no longer with us, but his spirit lives on. A Great Pyrenees, which were originally bred for their dauntless protection of mountain flocks and as official guard dogs for the French court in the 17th century, Barney continued this age old tradition by posting guard over the brew kettle as it boiled.
Although, the Great Pyrenees breed usually dislikes the water, Barney loved it and dove right in whenever he got the chance.
As a boating "enthusiast" he began sailing at three months and thus acquired his nickname of "Sea Dog". Barney was just as at home on deck as on land.
