Work Hard, play hard, be gneiss!
Gneiss was founded in 2013 as a passion project and has grown to become a destination for all those who seek out unique beers in a unique place. Head Brewer and Founder Dustin Johnson is inspired to create balanced beers that pay respect to the rich German tradition of brewing and layers them with the nuance and eccentricity of modern brewing. We look to our German heritage, our love of science and our Maine way of living to bring you truly 'rock-able' beers!
Gneiss is located in the foothills of the White Mountains, deep in the woods of rural Limerick, ME. We welcome you to visit us during our tasting room hours and experience the myriad of flavors we create here and to enjoy the bucolic views of our woodland brewery.
"This is definitely a hidden gem of an excellent craft brew location deep in the country but certainly well worth the drive."
