Where the beer flows like water

BANGOR – Some Bangor residents are getting an unexpected surprise when they turn on their taps.

Reports have been circulating that a few residential pockets in the city have been turning on their faucets, only to discover that instead of water, their pipes are gushing with delicious, delicious beer.

The Bangor beer scene has blown up in recent years, with a number of craft brewing operations – outfits large and small – bringing all manner of sudsy goodness to the area. Craft beer has permeated local culture thoroughly.

But no one could have expected it to be THIS thoroughly.

Every life features moments that can change everything. There are some choices whose effects will reverberate throughout the rest of our lifetimes, coloring every subsequent experience and largely defining the kind of person that history will judge us to be.

And so it is that with great humility and great hope, I, Allen Adams, must once again declare myself eligible for the draft. Sorry – drafts.

DERRY – Many people have been wondering about the recent onslaught of March storms, with heavy snow battering the Northeast. Not the folks in Derry, though. They’ve known this was coming for weeks.

‘Unsane’ in the brain

Remember when Steven Soderbergh said he wasn’t going to make movies anymore?

There are some movies that are clearly designed for sequels. They are structured specifically to allow for a continuation of the story going forward – sometimes to the detriment of the tale being told in the moment. They’re built to be built again.

And then you have a film like 2013’s “Pacific Rim.” Guillermo del Toro’s big-budget love letter to the giant monster movies of the past felt for all the world like a one-off; a stylish two-hour whirlwind of enormous robots fighting enormous monsters. It seemed to have told the story it meant to tell.

Enter “Pacific Rim Uprising,” a decent-enough sequel that nevertheless feels unnecessary and almost cursory. Without del Toro as the driving creative force – though he is credited as a producer – this new film simply fails to reach the heights of the first, lacking spirit to match the spectacle of the too-familiar action beats.

Canine genius develops dog-centric app

FetchR set to totally disrupt the playdate paradigm

BANGOR – This is a city built on secrets.

We’re not talking about the typical everyday mundane secrets, the little things that you’ll find in any city. No, we’re talking about the deep-down secrets. The weird secrets. Secrets like ancient crowns with mysterious social powers or a cohort of prominent figures who are probably robots.

Those secrets.

We here at The Maine Edge have never been ones for what you’d call “real journalism” – that’s never really been our beat. As a rule, we like to stay in our lane as far as that goes. But longtime readers know that every once in a while, we’re swept up into the whirlwind of a story that won’t let us go until we reach its (almost-certainly strange) ending.

This is one such story.
