Although distribution outside of their Thompson’s Point facility is limited, they have been able to increase production since their relocation, allowing them to supply more beer to their home state.

USM Artist-in-Residence Olof Nordal
We are very excited to install a complex and abstract rock sculpture by visiting Icelandic artist Ólöf Nordal in spring 2020. Her work “deals with Icelandic history and the collective memory of a nation in a critical and analytical way… My artistic research has been focused on the self-identity of a nation in postcolonial times, the origin and the reflection of national motifs in the present and the fragment as a mirror into the past.”
