Peak Organic Brewing
Dedicated to making delicious organic beer using the Northeast’s best locally-grown ingredients
At Peak Organic Brewing Company, the mission is to craft truly clean, delicious beers using only the finest and freshest organic ingredients. The brewing team works with over 40 amazing farms all around the Northeast that are growing some truly flavorful hops, wheat and barley. The resulting Peak Organic beers embrace these pure, natural ingredients and offer a range of fresh, complex styles.
Peak Organic Brewing Company was founded in Portland, Maine in 2005 by Jon Cadoux. Jon had started brewing beer at home during college when it was more of a hobby than a professional pursuit, but when it became his obsession he knew it would turn into a career. He knew he was on to something special when he began experimenting with organic ingredients and the results were better than anything else he had made. It was definitely a defining day for Jon when he discovered that you don’t need to sacrifice flavor for sustainability, and that better ingredients actually made the beer more delicious. Soon after graduating from Harvard with an MBA, Jon made plans for Peak Organic.
The concept behind the brewery’s name started with the idea that beer is shared with friends and family at ‘peak moments.’ Peak Organic’s social media platforms often share their fans’ pictures and videos capturing these moments. It is also important to note that while, yes, all the ingredients sourced for Peak Organic are organic, the brewery is just as dedicated to achieving excellent, unique flavor profiles in their finished beers.
Over the past ten years, Peak Organic has developed over twenty different organic craft beers, including some with very creative and outside-the-box flavor combinations (ginger saison, espresso amber ale, a maple collaboration, and a pomegranate wheat, to name a few).
Peak Organic recently became the first brewer to receive Non-GMO Project verification for its beer, which is also a huge accomplishment. We congratulate this small brewer on combining their love for beer with an ethic for sustainability and creating a truly special brewery. We are proud to introduce Peak Organic to our Craft Beer Club members.
