Three Pint Stance - Giving thanks with a beer

The most gluttonous holiday of the year is swiftly approaching, and while most of the focus is usually on the side dishes and main courses, I want to talk a bit about the beverage options at the Thanksgiving table.

Having worked at The Maine Edge back in the mid/late 00s, I know the company policy on political columns. It is with that in mind that I make this one tiny not-really-political political observation - we Americans could use a stiff drink right about now.

Three Pint Stance: Nitro beer - it's a gas!

It's getting to be the time of year where I tend to look less for a crisp, refreshing beer and more for a smooth, rich, satisfying brew. In my salad days of beer drinking, I would commonly reach for Guinness, Boddingtons and even the occasional can of Old Speckled Hen to satisfy this itch. While those three beers range in color from dark as night (Guinness) to light golden (Boddingtons), what they have in common is not a grain or hop, but a certain gas - nitrogen!

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.

Downtown Bangor is swiftly becoming a destination for thirsty beer lovers. With the recent opening of Orono Brewing Company's State Street location and the impending opening of 2 Feet Brewing on Colombia Street, the number of breweries in Bangor has doubled in a matter of months!

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.
