As avid fans of Maine craft beer, we had a dream to bring a fun and creative craft beer experience to Main Street in the heart of Yarmouth village. The plan was to create a hyperlocal, community-based pub where families and friends could gather for laughs or come together and support local causes while enjoying great local small-batch beer and food.
The community is made up of such a vibrant supportive group of people, we wanted to provide them with a place to call their own. A place that honors the hardworking, family-based community roots that have made Maine what is today.
When we learned of the history of the area of town known as Brickyard Hollow, we knew it was a perfect fit. A low-lying area of land, centrally located in the village was filled in to provide a place for the community to gather. After a couple of years of doing just this, bringing good food, good beer, and a gathering space to our community- we have started expanding.
We hope to continue the proud tradition of providing a place for the community to come together- in all of the communities we establish ourselves in.

Brickyard Hollow – A History Lesson
Although it might be hard to believe because of how character-filled and adorable our downtown is, the coastal town of Yarmouth wasn’t always as it is now. The property at 236 Main St., where the original Brickyard Hollow Brewery resides, was once a wet, muddy stretch of terrain that separated Yarmouth’s fishing industry from its inland farming community.
At the turn of the 20th century, the town decided to eliminate the swampy dividing line and fill in the hollow with black ash from a local paper mill, established nearby on the Royal River. This area started as grounds for community gathering and in time, the area was populated with the local institutions that make up the heart of Yarmouth’s Main Street village.
Our mission at Brickyard Hollow is to keep the history of our beloved town at the forefront, continue to be a community gathering space like the grounds where our brewery now resides once was and bring this mission into different communities over time.
