1% For The Waters



Sebago Lake is one of the cleanest water sources in America, thanks to the forests that naturally filter the water flowing into the lake. It supplies about 16% of Maine’s population with drinking water, and is designated by the EPA as one of only 50 water supplies in the country that does not require filtration before treatment because of its purity. This water supplies our homes, our businesses, and our local breweries and distilleries. The water we use at our Portland and Gorham production facilities comes from the Sebago Lake watershed outside of Portland and has been identified as one of the major contributing factors to Portland, Maine’s reputation as one of the best beer cities in America. 

In an effort to preserve this quality, we have partnered with Sebago Clean Waters to assist in protecting the forestland that maintains the quality and stability of the watershed. Sebago Clean Waters is a coalition of non-profit conservation organizations and the regional water utility that are coordinating efforts to protect 25% of the forested land around Sebago Lake through land transfers or easements and effectively preserve the natural filtration mechanisms that keep the quality of our source water so high.

1% of all revenues from our craft seltzer and spirits lines are committed to assist Sebago Clean Waters in their efforts to preserve 35,000 acres of forestland by 2032. To learn more about Sebago Clean Waters, their conservation efforts, to contribute to the cause, please visit SEBAGOCLEANWATERS.ORG, or simply enjoy a hard seltzer or spirit with the Sebago Clean Waters logo to participate.
