Hey all – sorry it’s been a slow week posting-wise in the BAB world but I’ve been super busy. Anyway, I wanted to point out a few upcoming events to the Portland locals (and those who are within a short driving distance and are lucky enough to be blessed with a D.D.). First, two events at Novare Res. The first, which takes place tomorrow (July 1st) from 6-9pm, will feature somewhere between 10-12 kegs of special Allagash brews (on both draught and cask) and special guest appearances from Rob Todd and the other owners and brewers from Allagash.
The second event at Novare will take place next Tuesday (the 8th) and it’s one which I am REALLY excited for – a very rare event here in New England and definitely one worth traveling for. Sam Calagione and all of the other owners, brewers, assistant brewers, managers, sales folks, distro guys… literally EVERYONE who has any ties to Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Delaware will be on hand pouring some rare Dogfish brews, answering questions and giving away tons of Dogfish Schwag. The event will last from 6-8pm only, though, so make sure and get there early!
If you’re in town this Wednesday (the 2nd), I will be hosting — along with Jason Burks (hopefully) of beerbloggers.com and the Maine Beer Writers’ Guild — the very first “Beer Connoisseur Tasting” (unofficial name; I don’t know the real one) evening at Prost! International Tap House from 6-7:00pm. So please come by, drink some good beers and introduce yourself.
And, speaking of Prost!, they’ve been selected as the July venue for the Maine Beer Writers’ Guild meet-up on Wendesday July 9th. Check out mainebeerwriters.org for more information.
And hopefully I’ll see you at the bar!
