About the Brewer

“What would a brewery be without a story to compliment its rich flavorful beers? My father Paul and I were estranged for seven years. To this day we are not sure why, maybe we should have started a brewery a long time ago. At that time, my father was growing his winter farm business, while I was being educated in the sciences.

As I was preparing to graduate from college and working in a microbiology lab, I wrote my father a letter which he kindly responded to, and that started a unique dialogue unlike any we have had. That very Christmas he bought me the Cadillac of homebrew kits. I was already involved in home brewing groups at school, and my friend Donovan and I were experimenting with new, unique yeast strains and ingredients. I started brewing in my dad’s garage and went nuts, like a mad scientist.

I answered the phone at work one day only to be asked if I wanted to start a brewery, my answer as you can imagine was hell yes!! From that time we have been brewing beer, beer and more beer. Our style is as unique as our landscape; we intertwine a clean American ale style with a rustic twist. Nothing at Funky Bow is plain and/or normal; our beers will always challenge your taste buds in the best of ways.

As of August 2014 we started Funky Bow Bread and Pizza Company. Growler nights up on the hill involve beer, live music and free pizza slices. Our dough is handmade with our spent grain from the brewery. Come on down or up to the brewery in Lyman, Maine!!”

Brewer Notes

A delicious hoppy IPA. A generous addition of hops with a kiss of malt sweetness balances this IPA very well.  The nose is upfront with the galaxy hops, lending nuances of grapefruit, pine, and tropical notes.

Brewer Notes

“Fortunate Islands combines the bangin' hop aroma of an über-tropical IPA with the crisp, deeply quenching drinkability of a killer pale ale. We achieve this magical result by starting with a mild, nutty malt backbone, then dry-hopping the bejesus out of it with Citra and Amarillo hops. Restrained bitterness and vibrant notes of mango, tangerine, and passionfruit combine to form a sessionable crusher of mind-bending proportions. It tastes like wizards.”

Brewer Notes

As winter rolls on, we’re excited to announce a little ray of sunshine we’re calling Sun Drift. Sun Drift is brewed with lemon zest, fermented with Brettanomyces yeast, and then blended with black tea.

“This beer’s flavor goes beyond the sum of its ingredients,” says our Brewmaster Jason Perkins. Lemon zest imparts a slightly tart note that’s accompanied by the medley of funky tropical fruit flavors created by the Brettanomyces yeast. After brewing, the beer is blended with Fair Trade Yunnan Black tea from Little Red Cup, of Brunswick, ME. The result evokes the refreshing combination of lemonade and tea, all cruising on a layer of fruit-filled aromatics.

If it sounds like a summer-y beer, that’s because it kinda is. During more than a few long winters, we found ourselves wanting to enjoy a beer that’s light and refreshing. In fact, Mainers are well known for enjoying themselves despite the weather: think, surfing in winter. So we brewed Sun Drift with the idea that it would conjure a little taste of summer, no matter what it looked like outside.

“Whenever possible, we look for ingredients in Maine.” said Jason. “That means getting grain from Maine farmers and tea from a local company like Little Red Cup.” 

Family owned since 2009, Little Red Cup sells tea that is certified organic by the USDA, and by Fair Trade USA. The company partners directly with the worker-owned cooperatives that grow and process the tea to reduce the number of steps from field to cup.

Sun Drift is made with local pale malt and local raw oats. It’s hopped with Cascade and Citra, then fermented on a combination of Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces Claussenii.
