Three Pint Stance - Local brewers get canned

Walking into any beer store these days will make one thing abundantly clear - cans are back! While bottles have ruled the realm of craft beer for most of its recent resurgence, more and more breweries are turning to the aluminum can to store their wares.

Three Pint Stance - Beer, weak

As you may have heard, Greater Bangor Beer Week is right around the corner (or currently happening, depending on when you read this). I was going to write a column about the many events planned all over the Greater Bangor region throughout the week, but Allen decided to pull rank and write about it for the cover story. Whatever. I get it.

(Editor's note: Deal with it.)

Three Pint Stance - What's in a glass?

Let me start by making one thing clear right off the top - there is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking a beer right from the can or bottle. Anyone who casts aspersions on those who do is a beer snob through and through.

Three Pint Stance - Gneiss turns three!

(Full Disclosure: The writer is a founder, co-owner and director of Marketing at Gneiss Brewing Company. Heavy bias and personal feelings definitely contributed to the writing of this article.)

Normally, I try to reserve this space for news and information about breweries in the Greater Bangor area, but since my fearless editorial leader Allen Adams asked for some words about Gneiss Brewing Company's forthcoming 3rd Anniversary Celebration, I had no choice but to oblige.

Three Pint Stance - Goodbye summer, hello fall!

The days are growing shorter and the night air has an unmistakable nip. Another summer soon will depart, leaving behind tan lines, empty cans and lots of great memories. As the tops of the trees start to turn orange and everything begins to smell of pumpkin spice, we say farewell to the beers of summer and welcome in the flavors of fall.

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!
