#MEBeerWeek Photo Journal

Maine Beer week continues! From Nov 10 to Nov 17 Maine is celebrating their breweries by doing events all across the state. I figured I would have my own little celebration as well as travel to some locations. Here is a photo journal of what I’ve done to recognize Maine so far this week.

I tried out Maine’s all lager brewery, Bull Jagger. This beer has a very unique taste that is malty and crisp. You will want to grab a couple of these in the store because after finishing one you will want another.

I managed to get a bottle of Polaris, one for me and one for Doreen (@BeerZenGirl). Polaris comes from Rising Tide which is becoming one of my favorite breweries in the area. Polaris is their Ursa Minor stout aged in bourbon barrels.

I picked up some other brews at Tullys to keep me busy during Maine Beer Week. Maine Beer Company Zoe and newly released Mean Old Tom, Baxter Brewing Amber Road and Sebago Local Hrvest.

We visited Sebago in Portland on Saturday. What is really cool about a brewery like Sebago is that they put other Maine brewery taps in their brewery. This was a good site to see, breweries working together. They had such a great response, that all the guest taps were kicked the night they were out on!

I opted for the Sebago Slick Nick, their winter seasonal, delicious!

Amongst their epic taplist was their Polaris (which I picked up earlier in a bottle) and I had i have it on draft. It is the best from Rising Tide’s already excellent selection of beer. I highly recommend tracking it down soon!

Maine beer week continues! How are you celebrating?

Cheers,
