Sea Dog Brewing Company is an American microbrewery, located in Bangor, Maine. Sea Dog was founded by Pete Camplin, Sr. in 1993. Initially the company comprised a 240-seat brewpub and a small kegging brewery, located in Camden, Maine. In 1995, Sea Dog moved to a new facility, comprising a 540-seat restaurant and microbrewery in Bangor, Maine. The Sea Dog Brewing Company is presently run under the joint ownership of Alan Pugsley and Fred Forsley, who are also the owners of the Shipyard Brewing Company, located in Portland, Maine.
There is also a Sea Dog location in Topsham, Maine. It is located in a historic mill building near the bridge between Topsham and Brunswick, and has a patio overlooking the river that is open during the summer months.
The Sea Dog beers are formulated and brewed in a traditional style using imported English two-row malted barley for ales and imported German hops and grains for lagers. Fermentation uses a British top-fermenting yeast in open fermenters to create balanced and fruity flavored ales with a crisp finish. Sea Dog claims to be one of the few craft breweries in New England brewing both traditional ales and lagers.
