Beer Event – 2nd Annual Portland Brew Festival
We’re back for another year!
2012 is a fantastic year for the Portland Brew Festival, what promises to become one of the jewels of summer in Maine. With 3 buildings for exhibitors, over 75 varieties of regional craft brews, home-brewing supplies and demonstrations, the best in food, local music how could it really get better?
But we realize after 3 1/2 hours of tasting-sized samples and a whole head-load of beer education, you’ll likely want to get out and get friendly with a full-sized pint or two and see how some of your new favorites stand up to your favorite dishes. So we’re putting this whole craft beer-stravaganza right on the edges of Munjoy Hill and the Old Port where you can meander into town after the fact and get feel for these beers in a real-world context.
