Baxter Brewing Co. is a Maine-based micro craft brewery which is the first brewery of its kind in the state to can all of its beer.
Museum L-A is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1996, by local attorney Elliott Epstein at the close of the City of Lewiston’s Bicentennial celebration, in order to fulfill the Bicentennial’s goal of creating a permanent memorial to local history. Primarily run and driven by volunteers during the first decade, early work consisted largely of salvaging and preserving industrial artifacts from closing businesses. The first paid staff joined in 2004 and Museum L-A has gradually increased over the years in both staffing and services offered – now sustaining a variety of full time positions supporting growing numbers of programs and events.
