Runabout Red Ale is a classic! Our Red Ale has a malty sweet taste that comes from 3 different types of caramel malt. It is a clean, well-balanced beer that started as seasonal ale that we only brewed from March until July. It was so popular with our regulars that we started brewing it year round in 2002. Our red ale is made with only two hop additions to the kettle as opposed to three in most of our other brews and the malt character shows this. Please enjoy our staff favorite!

name and logo for our Runabout Red Ale invokes the image of
lake life in Maine. The antique wooden boat symbolizes quality
craftsmanship, art, history and design as does our beer. The
woman on the label is Elsie Whidden. Elsie has a passion for
Maine lake life and antique wooden boats. In honor of Elsie,
a lifelong Maine teacher living with Parkinson’s, we donate
$1 to the Maine Parkinson Society for every case of Runabout
Red Ale sold.
