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.

You gotta be fresh

Ever crack open a bottle or can of your favorite beer and noticed something was off? Maybe the malty notes taste a bit muddled, perhaps the hop flavor wasn't quite as bright as you remember it, or you even taste a cardboard or metallic flavor in the beer. Chances are, if you look around the container you will find a date stamp, and this is usually the culprit as to why your beer isn't all it can be - staleness.

Blank Canvas changing locations

Blank Canvas Brewery in Brewer just served its last beers at 71 Center Street; they will be closing down for a little over a month to relocate to 46 Betton Street, also in Brewer.

More fun than a barrel of…beer

If you have looked around at your local bottle shop lately, you have surely noticed an increase in the availability and variety of ‘barrel-aged’ beers.
