Today we chat with Stephen Genthner, founder of Blank Canvas Brewery in Brewer, Maine. Most folks start as home brewers and dream of starting their own brewery, but his journey was a little different.
Stephen worked for Allagash pouring beers at a Brewfest before learning to home brew. Over a decade later he started Blank Canvas. They may be the smallest brewery in the Bangor area using a half barrel system, but they are huge in innovation and taste. Inspired by Dogfish Brewing, Stephen switches up his taps monthly with something new and unique such as their Brown Ale where the coffee is added later during fermentation.
