This morning, a few folks on twitter noticed that Bull Jagger’s brewing equipment was posted for sale on Craigslist. After much speculation started to stir, there was an official announcement from Tom Bull.

Friends of Bull Jagger~

As some of you know, the brewery is for sale. Bull and Jagger are going their separate ways, and under the circumstances, we have no choice but to close the company. In the coming weeks, we will have fresh beer to package and sell. Our lagers are and will be available in Maine through our distributor, retailers, and to the public while supplies last.

Tom Bull, co-owner and head brewer, has been asked by the owners of the Big Claw brand to work with another local brewer to brew Big Claw Pilsner (and keep Tom brewing in general) for the coming spring and summers seasons . . . and beyond.

A world of gratitude to all of you who have supported us– we have learned a lot, laughed a lot, and made lots of new friends along the way.

After the brewery is sold, Tom will regroup and continue to pursue the passion that made him Maine’s 1st all lager craft brewer. Until then, enjoy our local lagers and keep supporting your local craft beers and beer sellers.

Drink up boys and girls, the brewery needs the kegs.


I am saddened, but encouraged by the prospect that the delicious beer that came from Bull Jagger will continue somehow in the future. I wish them the best of luck and raise a glass to their future endeavors!
