The best way to drink beer is to go right to the source. Visiting a brewery is a great way to get to know more about your beer, have a fresh pint and bring some home to enjoy later. While a lot of breweries offer standard bottles and cans at their tasting rooms, you might find yourself putting down a deposit for a big jug called a growler.

For many of us, we start and end our days with the simple joys of one of two brewed beverages - coffee or beer. Mornings begin with the familiar smell of roasty, robust coffee beans giving up their intense flavor and aroma to the hot water as it passes through the grounds. The end of the day brings the hiss of an opening can or bottle and the effervescent sound as the liquid fills your chosen beer glass. These two brewed staples, coffee and beer, have become an integral part of day-to-day life, and it is time they join together to make sweet, sweet magic!

Three Pint Stance - What's old is new again

The story of beer in America lately has been all about the resurgence of brewing and the growing number of new breweries opening all around the country. While that continues to be what the majority of people are talking about when it comes to beer, another trend seems to be taking hold - the resurgence of nostalgic beer brands.

So - here we are in the height of wedding season in Maine. Every day, happy couples from the mountains to the coast are tying the knot in front of family and friends. All the while, beer drinkers like me are struggling through countless dry and bubbly champagne toasts. Sure, the speeches can drag on sometimes, but in my mind, nothing is worse than the champagne itself!

Three Pint Stance Summer Session roundup

The dust (and severe thunderstorms!) have settled and another Summer Session Brew Festival is in the books. The 2016 version brought more breweries and attendees to the event than ever. Really, the one thing the event ran short on was time.

It seems there are always new breweries opening in Maine, but lately, we have seen a trend of breweries relocating, opening new spots and former brewers getting back into the game.

Salty beer? Sounds gross, doesn't it? What if I told you it is actually delicious? You would think I'm a crazy person. Well, I am most likely not a crazy person (jury is still out on that one) but I can tell you for certain that Gose, a lightly-salted, sort-of-sour, coriander-laden beer that originated from Germany is, in fact, delicious.

In the summer of 1995, Rob Tod sold his first kegs of Allagash White to the Great Lost Bear. Now, 21 years later, Allagash White is literally old enough to drink itself (I realize how weird that sounds).

'Tis the season for saison

Summer has arrived, and the best way to beat the heat is to go down into the basement and bring up the saison that you have been storing all Winter/Spring.
