Three Pint Stance – It’s lonely at this bar for one

So I was thinking. I write this weekly column about beer,and I have fun with it. I try to make it informative, funny and altogether not a waste of your time. And I think I do pretty well with those goals, but you are the final judge of all that, right?

With that in mind, I ask you this. How am I doing? Honestly, the amount of feedback I get on this is quite minimal, so here I am soliciting it (for better or worse.)

This is your chance, America (and by “America” I mean “Greater Bangor metro area”). Tell me what you want to see in this space and I will bring it to you. Do you want more new beer release news? Interviews with beer industry folks? My (suspect) advice on how to make beer at home? Limericks, and only limericks about beer? Anything you want to know about beer, specifically beer in Maine, let me know and I’ll do my best to bring it to you.

In doing this column for lo these many years, I’d hate for it to become something irrelevant that doesn’t serve its purpose, which is ultimately to inform and excite people about craft beer in Maine. As the disclosure notice informs you regularly, I am a part owner at Gneiss Brewing Company, so I admit that sometimes in the day-to-day operations of our little piece of the industry, it can be difficult to take a step back and honestly survey what is going on in the Maine beer scene.

If there is something you think I’m missing, anything at all, reach out! I pass the buck to you, Edge reader. Reach out to me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

P.S. Allagash’s Hoppy Table Beer is soon to be available in cans! The day has finally come and Maine’s most renowned brewery has made the switch from bottles to cans. Only Hoppy Table Beer will be making the switch (for now), but I have a sneaking suspicion that White is destined for a can at some point. I say this with absolutely no confidence or inside knowledge, just a hunch. Either way, I for one am VERY EXCITED to take some Hoppy Table Beer on the trail with me this summer!
