Kennebec River Pub & Brewery
Usually, having a solid beer in the wilderness involves packing in a huge cooler and packing out a sack of bottles. KRB in The Forks has the advantage of being the on-site brewery of the Northern Outdoors Resort. That means that no white-water rafting trip, snowmobile ride, hike or -- let’s be honest -- night chilling in the lodge is ever too far from a Magic Hole IPA, winter Sledhead Red, or a Bear Naked schwarzbier, a brew that goes down easy enough that its name might be less clever pun than suggestion to go outside for a dip. They also let you leave with their signature KRB brew in a growler, which is pretty nice takeaway.
