CANCELLED Whats Been Brewing in Portland

  • Craft Beer Cellar 111 Commercial Street Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

This event has been cancelled

The Northeast has experienced an explosion of breweries in recent years. Kate Cone is a Maine author who traveled the length and breadth of the region to both research the breweries who have stood the test of time and the newcomers that have sprung up, and of course to sample their products. 

What Kate found is much of the current regional success can be traced to brewing roots right here in Portland, Maine. And her recent released book What’s Brewing in New England, is an updated guide from her first edition that was published nearly twenty years ago. 

Join Kate on The Maine Brew Bus for this very special tour that will celebrate that historical significance, and will also serve as a special release event for her new book. 

This tour will visit D.L. Geary Brewing Company, Allagash Brewing Company, Shipyard Brewing Company, and features a full lunch at Gritty McDuff’s. Each participant on the tour will also receive a personally signed copy of What’s Brewing in New England. 

Special guests who have played a key role in each of these breweries will be available to meet and answer questions during the tour. 

At the conclusion of the tour, Kate will available to the general public signing copies of her book in two locations:

3-4p Shipyard Brewing Company gift shop
4:30-6pm Great Lost Bear (during an Allagash Brewing Company tap takeover)

COST: $90/pp includes transportation, alcohol samples, lunch, bottled water, and gratuities paid at each stop, as well as a signed copy of Kate’s book.
