Member Spotlight: Peak Organic Brewing Company

Peak is a craft brewing company, dedicated to making delicious beer using local, artisan and organic.

With roots in home brewing back in the 90s, brewer Jon Cadoux set about combining his love for beer with an ethic for sustainability. Whenever possible, he would go out and find ingredients from local organic farmers for his homebrews. It was a defining day when Jon discovered that you don’t need to sacrifice flavor for sustainability, but that better ingredients actually made the beer more delicious.

Fortunately it wasn’t hard to find good people on brew days to experiment and enjoy the fruits of their labor. From longtime friends to college buddies, and even his brother, a kinship was forged to share in this quest to make delicious organic beer. Many of those people are still part of the company today.

Gradually, we came up with a name for the moments we all shared over our craft: Peak Experiences. Beers in hand, we found ourselves celebrating the end of a great day outdoors, adventurous past travels, or a favorite meal with friends and family. We liked these moments so much we decided to put Peak Experience photos on all of our packaging. We invite all of you to share your Peak Experiences with us. Send us a shot and you could find yourself on a beer bottle.

Now, brewing out of Portland, Maine, we’re proud to be part of a craft beer renaissance. It’s an exciting time for American craft brewers, who are creating some of the best beers in the world. Peak is contributing to this movement with contemporary takes on traditional styles of beer, and innovative flavors that have never been brewed before. If you read about our beers, you’ll see we love to collaborate with other local purveyors, organic farmers, creative chefs, and like-minded organizations to create a tasty beer in the best way possible.In 2009, Peak helped Maine farmers cultivate commercial hops, the first such harvest since 1880. We take great pride in the fact that these hops were organic.

To this day, our mission at Peak remains simple: to make delicious, creative brews that we can feel good about. We hope you enjoy them and remind you to find time to celebrate the Peak Experiences in your life.
