Quality Is Our Craft

Analytical chemistry is the art and science of using instrumentation and methods to separate, identify, and quantify matter - in our lab, we take this branch of chemistry and apply it to craft beverages.

QC2 is an essential resource for Maine breweries and for all craft beer drinkers who value quality and consistency!

Luci and Sam always get us our results back quickly and they are open and available to talk through results and questions we have.

Rachael Morris, Brewer Oxbow Brewing Company | Newcastle, ME

Having access to equipment we couldn't otherwise afford has helped our QC program out tremendously and I can't recommend them enough!
