Amber Road Amber Ale by Baxter Brewing - Lewiston, Maine

Amber Road by Baxter Brewing Company

Amber Road, the eagerly anticipated third style of beer from Baxter Brewing Company, is in the can. “One of the most frequent questions I’ve gotten, almost from the beginning,” says Luke Livingston, founder and president of the upstart craft brewery which has become known for packaging unusual and popular beer exclusively in cans and kegs, “has been ‘I love your beer. When will the next one come out?’ Well, it’s here,” he added.

Amber Road, a malt-accented amber ale featuring a rich toastines and balanced hop flavor that lingers through to an exceptionally smooth finish, joins Baxter’s flagship styles Pamola Xtra Pale Ale and Stowaway IPA, which have been distributed throughout Maine since January, 2011, and which have recently begun shipping to Greater Boston, as well. The new amber ale is a careful blend of ten different malts and three different hop varietals. The profile of this beer fits nicely next Baxter’s two previous releases while appealing to the more malt-minded beer drinker, nicely rounding out the company’s profile of year-around releases.


Named for the ancient Roman trade route that ran for centuries from the modern-day Baltics to Northern Africa for the transport of then semi-precious amber, the Amber Road is meant to connote cosmopolitan adventure, in keeping with the emphasis of Baxter’s commitment to the portability of great beer in cans, along with the special characteristics of this newest style.

“Amber Road is already on tap in our tasting room,” Livingston said, “and it’s also available in our shop by the six pack. It will be shipped everywhere in Maine beginning November 1, but it may take a little while to find its way to all corners of the state.”

Mainers eager for a taste can join festivities at DaVinci’s restaurant (11/1) and Grid Iron (11/3) in Lewiston; the Maine Brewers’ Festival (11/5) in Portland; Bull Feeney’s (11/9), Empire Dine & Dance (11/15), and Downeast Beverages (11/11) in Portland; Jimmy the Greek’s in Old Orchard Beach (11/16) and more. A current list of events and tastings can be found Baxter’s website

Amber Road amber ale will be available exclusively in the state of Maine for the remainder of 2011, while the Boston will get its first shipment of Amber Road after the first of the year. “We’ve been thrilled with the positive reception our beer has received in the Boston area,” Livingston explained, “and we’re trying hard to keep them supplied with Pamola and Stowaway, at the moment.”

Less than a year old, Baxter Brewing has quickly exceeded its initial expectations, virtually doubling its production capacity in its first six months. The brewery is on track to produce 5,000 barrels (the equivalent of more than 68,000 cases) in its first year.
