About Our Collaboration With The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital
Starting on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2023, each family welcoming a newborn baby at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital will receive a gift card for a complimentary small pizza at any Brickyard Hollow location. We are thrilled to collaborate with the hospital to extend a warm and supportive welcome to the newest members of our community and their families. At Brickyard Hollow, we believe that food, drink, and a sense of belonging have the power to bring people together. This collaboration is a natural extension of our commitment to fostering connection and community.
By offering a small but heartfelt token of appreciation to local families during this significant time, we hope to make a positive difference in the community and show our support for the exceptional work being done at the hospital. We are proud to be part of a community that comes together to support each other in times of need, and we look forward to continuing to strengthen those bonds through initiatives like this one.

Exploring Brunswick, Maine
After visiting our new location, be sure to check out the town of Brunswick, Maine! Brunswick is a vibrant town filled with opportunities to explore and relax. One must-visit destination is the downtown area, where you’ll find many unique shops, galleries, and restaurants. For a taste of local art and Maine-made products, head to the Tontine Mall, or lose yourself in the pages of Gulf of Maine Books, an independent bookstore that has been a cherished part of the community for decades.
A visit to Bowdoin College is also a must, where you can soak up the rich history and culture of the campus or visit their breathtaking museum of art. Also located on campus is the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, the only museum in the lower 48 states dedicated completely to Arctic Studies.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love the Androscoggin River Bicycle and Pedestrian Path, which offers stunning views and the chance to spot local wildlife while walking, jogging, or biking. For a more immersive nature experience, head to the nearby Crystal Spring Farm, a 320-acre property with miles of trails through diverse habitats, including forests, meadows, and wetlands.
Of course, no visit to Brunswick would be complete without savoring the local cuisine. From fresh seafood to farm-to-table fare, you’ll find a wide variety of dining options to suit your tastes.
Our May Pizza With Potential Collaboration With Bird & Co.
Our Pizza With Potential initiative brings a festive twist this May, as we partner with Bird & Co., a popular Mexican restaurant in Portland’s Woodfords Corner neighborhood, to create a special Cinco de Mayo pizza while raising funds to combat childhood food insecurity in Maine.
With one in six children in Maine still facing food insecurity, the need for action is more critical than ever. That’s why, for the month of May, Brickyard and Bird & Co. are excited to present the “Street Corn Pizza” of the month. It’s a scrumptious combination of chorizo, street corn, cilantro, and cotija cheese atop Brickyard Hollow’s artisanal crust. For every pizza sold, $1 will be donated to Full Plates Full Potential, an organization dedicated to ending child hunger in Maine by partnering with the hospitality industry and various other businesses throughout the state.
The Street Corn Pizza will be available at Brickyard Hollow’s locations in Portland, Ogunquit, Yarmouth, and Freeport. In addition to supporting Full Plates through our pizza sales at Brickyard locations, Bird & Co. will carry Brickyard Hollow’s beer for the month, donating $1 from every beer sold to Full Plates.
This partnership not only showcases the culinary talents of both businesses but also helps make a positive impact on the community by addressing childhood hunger in Maine. We hope this collaboration inspires others to join the cause and make a difference in the lives of children in need.
Summer Events At Brickyard Hollow
From our monthly Pizza With Potential initiative to address childhood food insecurity in Maine, to a variety of local events and fundraisers, Brickyard is gearing up for a busy season in the community! We’ll also be hosting great happy hour deals, community nights, live music, trivia, and more!
