Liquid Riot at Cooks Lobster Ale House

27 Jun 2023 Liquid Riot at Cooks Lobster Ale House

Summer in Maine is often synonymous with being on the water and Cooks Lobster Ale House on Bailey’s Island is as quintessential as it gets. The newly expanded and renovated pub and bar features a large selection of Maine craft beer, signature drinks, great food and spectacular views. You can now sip Liquid Riot’s Nama on draft there all summer-long and they are featuring our Vodka in their ‘55 cocktail. 

We recently joined The Beer Mama, Maine’s iconic beer influencer at Cooks Lobster to sip our beers paired with some delicious seafood and summery dishes, as well as learn to make Cook’s ‘55 cocktail using our Liquid Riot Vodka.

Although yummy to sip anytime of the year, our Japanese-inspired all malt Lager Nama is especially refreshing on a hot Summer’s day. Light and crisp at 5.3% ABV, it pairs well with Maine seafood especially like the infamous Tuna Nachos served at Cooks Lobster. House fried wontons layered with soy, ginger marinated tuna, scallions, cherry peppers, topped with seaweed salad and drizzled with Cook’s house sauce – it’s a match made in heaven.


Most of the seafood at Cooks Lobster is caught in the surrounding waters. You can actually hear the crash of the surf or the lobster boats hauling their traps while sipping your drink on their deck; making it an ideal spot to imbibe seaside

In addition to Nama on draft, Cooks Lobster also has our Renaissance Red Ale in cans. Many may consider a Red Ale a Fall or Winter beer, but ours is on the lighter side and fun to sip in the warmer months as well. Renaissance is a modern Red Ale, finding a balance between sweet maltiness and citric hoppiness. Pairs beautifully with meats and richer foods.

It’s not only our beers that pair well with seafood, but also our Vodka does too. Made from an Organic Wheat based Neutral Grain Spirit that we re-distill it in our small copper still and then triple charcoal filter so that its crystal clear. Our Vodka pairs especially well with briny Maine oysters. Cooks sell them raw on the half shell. 

The ‘55 cocktail made with our Vodka is a homage to the year Cooks Lobster opened. Be sure to order it the next time you’re in to cheers to a Maine establishment.
