Now in our third year of partnering with Slab Sicilian Street Food, the tour-nament event will showcase 20 different breweries featured on 6 different Maine Brew Bus tours in Southern Maine.
From open to close guests at Slab will be able to choose their favorite beer from the selections available, each grouping representing a different tour on The Maine Brew Bus.
Every beer that day will have special pricing, $6 for an 12oz pour size. This is a pay-as-you-go event.
Each brewery will only have one sixtel available for sale on that day, and if that keg runs out first in their tour group then that brewery wins that group. If a keg does not run out, then the brewery who sells the most pours out of our their tour-nament group will win.
Winners from each tour group will later become a Featured Brewery of the Week at Slab, a special week of their own with three draft lines available. Announcement of the tour group winners will be made at 9pm.
Come on down to El Rayo Taqueria Portland and enjoy the best of both worlds!! Sample some fantastic craft sour beers the best way we know how- with tequila!! We'll be mixing up special "Beer-Ritas" all night.
