October 2017


Peak foliage season has come and gone, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy your favorite fall brews. We still have a wide selection of seasonal beers available. With so many unique flavors out there, there is something for everyone. Don't wait too long or you may find your favorites are gone until next year.

We hope that everyone has a safe Halloween. Consider trying an Oktoberfest brew to end the month with a bang. Please drink responsibly, especially if you are planning on attending a Halloween party. For those celebrating Halloween in a more traditional style, watch out for trick-or-treaters on the streets, always check your children's candy haul (and maybe save a few pieces for yourself) and remember to only visit safe neighborhoods for candy treats.

Lastly, but most importantly, we want to thank our veterans. We have the deepest respect and gratitude for the men and women who have served, and want to recognize them. From all of us at National, thank you!

Fall Beer Selection

The fall season is still young, and we'd like to suggest a few fall beers that we think you'd enjoy. To see the entire selection, please visit our seasonal beers page.

Stony Creek Stony JoeStony Creek Stony Joe — A golden mocha stout, designed like a traditional milk stout but without using the typical roasted dark malts. A boat load of rich, decadent golden colored English barley, flaked barley, flaked oats and flaked wheat to give it lush body and smooth sweetness. Cocoa nibs and coffee add to the rich mocha notes and bright coffee aroma.

Geaghan Bros BrewingGeaghan Bros Aroostook Hop Harvest — Wet-hopped amber colored ale with Cascade and Centennial hops from Aroostook Hops with the maltiness of Maine Malt House's Mapleton Pale malt to create a unique Maine drinking experience.

Gritty's HalloweenGritty's Halloween Ale — This robust brew has a deep amber color, a bold, malty palate and a well-rounded hop finish. The perfect beer for a crisp autumn day!


Craft Iced Tea

Teavana — We are excited to welcome Teavana Craft Iced Teas to our non-alcoholic beverage portfolio. Crafted from the finest teas, botanicals and premium natural fruit flavors, Teavana Iced Teas are a delicious choice.

Employee of the Month

As a sign of our appreciation, every month we honor one employee as the "Employee of the Month" based on their work and staff recommendations.

We are proud to announce Matt Place, our craft beer specialist, as Employee of the Month. Matt was nominated for his consistent "can do" attitude and desire to take on more responsibilities with his thirst for knowledge.
