Baxter Brewing Co.

Located in Bates Mill no. 1 in downtown Lewiston, the Pub at Baxter Brewing Co. brought new life to a nearly 170-year-old textile mill that once employed 6,000 people but had been empty for decades. The design pays homage to the region’s rich manufacturing heritage.  A wrought iron gate frames a path lined with gas torches.  As you enter, 25’ tall ceilings draw your eyes to the mezzanine that sits above a 35-seat, horseshoe shaped bar.  Original flooring was hand-crafted and reused for the bar, tables and cabinetwork.  LED ‘Edison’ style lighting complements the restored interior woodwork and brick.
