If you live in or happen to be vacationing anywhere near the vacinity of the Pine Tree State this week, be sure and get yourself to Novare Res for two of the biggest beer events happening in Maine in two thousand and nine. First, tomorrow (Tuesday August 4th) sees the 2nd annual Dogfish Head Fest with 23 beers from the folks at Dogfish, including
Limited releases and all the rare shit. Pairings of 4 dfh beers with your choice of 4 meats, 4 cheeses, 4 fruits & nuts, or 4 chocolates. Plus a special superstar appearance of Sam Calagione, owner/brewmaster, from 6-8pm. Beers and pairings all day.
And if that wasn’t enough, this weekend (Friday August 7 and Saturday August 8th) checkout the second annual Rogue-a-palooza. This time it will be even bigger than last year, if that’s possible. Again, the most Rogue beers ever poured anywhere at any given time. But this year there are two additional beers being poured, for a total of 30 Rogue brews. Plus plenty of rare kegs and lots of give-aways. See you there!
