Grittys, you have been my favorite brewpub for nearly two decades, but your Auburn location has a problem, either the bar is oversized or the bar stools are undersized. Either way, lunch today was uncomfortable. Oh , and a napkin would have been dandy.

Tremendously helpful bar staff allowing us to try local brews before ceding which one to order. Nice beer ( I drink real ale in the UK) and was not disappointed! Recommended.

Gritty McDuff's, Maine's Original Brew Pub specializes in hand-crafted English style ales and traditional and creative pub fare, in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Both Gritty's fine ales and the pubs have won countless "best of" awards through our twenty-five years of operation. Our standard brews are session beers, Gritty's Pub-Style Pale Ale, McDuff's Best Bitter, Black Fly Stout, allowing one to have multiple beers within a reasonable time period without overwhelming the senses. Our seasonal and varietal ale offerings are more adventurous, some with a higher ABV, and some with higher IBU. We brew a beer for all craft brew palates. For the diner, we offer traditional pub fare alongside not so traditional specialty items. Our pub-style long tables with benches easily accommodate parties of all sizes and add to the camaraderie.
