We are three old friends in our second year running a small brewery in our hometown. Ben and Jesse grew up together and have been home brewing for years. Ben worked for the amazing Sebago Brewing Company in Portland, Maine, but it wasn't long before he realized he couldn't stay away from home and he began planning The North Haven Brewing Company in 2012. After moving into our space in the fall of 2015, the dream became a reality. We are looking forward to a summer of familiar faces and new and exciting brews!

The Crew

Ben Lovell 

The Mastermind

Ben is the force behind NH Brewing. He loves beer, books and freedom (which is not free). He graduated from North Haven Community School with Jesse in 2005 and then went to Bowdoin College. He worked as a sternman on North Haven and then as an assistant brewer at Sebago Brewing Company, before returning home to start brewing beer on the island.

Jesse Davisson 

The Tap Room Czar

Jesse is one of the best guys you will ever meet and definitely one you'd want to have a beer with. You can catch him for one any day our tasting room is open! When he's not at the brewery, he can be found on the bay.  Jesse is a lobsterman and captain of F/V Windfall. In the off season he makes it a point to try as many new craft beers as he can, often making the long trek to some "well worth the trip" breweries.  

Liz Lovell 

Big Sister

Resident micromanager, Liz couldn't help but climb on board when her brother told her he wanted to start a brewery on the island.  After graduating from college, Liz has been involved in the management of local businesses - The Strand Theatre, Nebo Lodge and Waterman's Community Center. In 2015 she gave birth to the two cutest twin boys on the planet and began helping to launch North Haven Brewing Co.
