Saturday was a fine day to be a beer lover as the Maine Brewers’ Guild’s Summer Session 2017 took over Thompson’s Point. The sold-out festival included a whole lot of local craft beer samples as well as “beer school” talks, food trucks, live music, vendors and games. The Maine Beer Box, a shipping container with fixed taps, had returned from Iceland and served both local and Icelandic brews.
