Terry Geaghan

Owner

The second of eleven children growing up in Brewer, Terry was an avid athlete and started his career in restaurants at an early age. After attending University of Maine, Terry moved to Bath in 1971 to be the assistant curator at the Maine Maritime Museum before ultimately opening his own business. The Shipmaster's Gallery is still going strong to this day, and Terry puts his expertise in both ship model construction and maritime history to good use worldwide. Terry met Co-Owner Mike Therriault during their weekly pickup basketball games at the YMCA, and the concept of Bath Brewing began to take form. In addition to his many professional accolades, Terry has always been invested in the Midcoast community and philanthropic work, serving on various boards from the YMCA to the Maritime Museum to the hospital. Terry is passionate about giving back to the community he loves, and giving locals and those from away a place to gather and make new friends. He can often be seen greeting customers in the brew pub, lending a hand to employees, sampling Pete's latest offerings, and ensuring that everyone is having a great time. Terry still resides in the same home he built some years ago overlooking Nequasset Lake in Woolwich.

Tony Mandeville

Head Chef

Tony was born in Portland and grew up in the Wells area until his family relocated to New Jersey when he was twelve. His culinary career started in high school when he began working at Max's Station House. His passion for the kitchen grew, and he went on to attend Johnson & Wales in Providence, RI. Upon graduation, Tony took a Sous Chef position at Bula World Cuisine, a move that would send him on his professional path through the kitchen. After five years at Bula, Tony followed the ownership on their new venture to Salt Gastropub, where he would step into the role of Chef de Cuisine, a role he loved for his ten-year tenure with the company. While Tony had always enjoyed his time in New Jersey, he knew he wanted to settle back in his native Maine, so when the opportunity to come aboard with Bath Brewing came around, he knew it was a chance he couldn't miss. Bringing with him a vast culinary repertoire and a love for cooking elevated pub food, Tony has been the driving force behind the fantastic dishes at Bath Brewing, and enjoys the opportunity to bring new flavors to the menu. While he never thought he would be the first of his family to move back to Maine, he is happy to be settled back in his home state, and can't wait for the rest of his family to follow suit. When not in the kitchen, Tony enjoys taking in live music, meeting new dogs and spending time with family and friends. He has a wicked sense of humor, and keeps the crew on their toes with his quick wit.

After starting off as a production brewer, Pete moved on to start up the pilot brewing program. In 2016, he accepted the position of Head Brewer at D.L. Geary Brewing Co, where he instituted their pilot system. And brought several new beers into production. Pete came on board Bath Brewing to be part of a like-minded team with a passion for great beer and food. In his own words, "Building a brewery from scratch to support the community that I have called home since moving here in 2010 with my beautiful wife (a Morse alum!) was an opportunity I couldn't pass up!". Pete can be found most days working diligently in his brewhouse creating new beers and perfecting his craft. While he prefers to stay behind the scenes, if you get a moment to bend his ear, he can't help but talk about his passion for beer! Outside of the brewery, Pete and his wife foster dogs for a local rescue group, and he is an avid sailor and music lover.
