Maine Beer Company of Freeport announced the release of Woods and Waters IPA, brewed to commemorate the the creation of the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.

The North Woods Monument was created on Aug. 24 after 87,562 acres of land previously owned by Burt’s Bees entrepreneur Roxanne Quimby was signed over to the U.S. Department of the Interior and National Park Service.

The beer uses barley and wheat from Blue Ox Malthouse in Lisbon Falls, American hops. The company describes the beer as having flavors and aromas of pine and citrus.

The beer will be available on Sept. 30 in limited quantities at Maine Beer Company’s tasting room.
