Baxter Brewing Co. has been brewing beer since 2010 in a renovated mill building in Lewiston. From day one, the brewery set itself apart by deciding to package all of its beer in cans. While cans are now widely popular at Maine breweries, Baxter Brewing was the first in Maine to can its entire lineup.
