This week's Hoppy Happenings features: Austin Street's Grand Opening, Maine Madness champion Maine Island Trail Ale comes back in a can, an invitation to Brew For a Cause with Sebago, a major beer fest announcement and two legislative changes - for the better!
This week: New spring beer from Atlantic, the return of Summer (at least in a beer, anyway) from Shipyard, and another beer that will make coffee lovers swoon as brewed by Banded Horn. Also, the (re)launch of a brewpub in Brunswick and an opportunity to get as much Allagash as you have ever dreamed of in one place.
Foundation Brewing Company in Portland opened its doors in February - and has been quietly carving out a space for themselves by putting a serious focus on the beer - and little else.
If you blinked, you might have missed that on Tuesday Maine Beer Company released “Dinner” - a hopped up double IPA.
Two events tonight: AHA Rally at Allagash and a Funky Bow / Flatbread fundraiser. Austin Street, Lively Brewing get going, Rising Tide goes small and everything else involves barrels of some kind. Seriously. Lots of barrels.
Maine beer is killing it this week. Bissell Brother's debut, a Marshall Wharf tap takeover, a beer-y book signing, Baxter's almost ridiculously large expansion and something called a "pancake race."
This week's hoppy happenings features a new beer coming from Baxter, some great news from Bissell Brothers, Foundation and Banded Horn, as well as events at Rising Tide and a nod to brewer Rob Tod of Allagash.
A look into the colorful and interesting Bissell Brothers Brewing, one of the newly-opened breweries housed in the Industrial Way complex in Portland.
A stop on a special "new brewery" tour from The Maine Brew Bus, Austin Street Brewery hosted some guests to try their beer - and made us all want them to open even sooner than they plan to.
Beer always makes a good date. In this weeks hoppy happenings there are events for the single people, the couples and everyone in between. Enjoy some new beer releases, munch on some chocolates or even get a massage.
