BUCKSPORT – Bucksport’s Main Street played host to a few members of Maine’s burgeoning craft brewing scene last weekend, thanks to the efforts of everybody’s favorite beermaking friars.

The Friars’ Invitational Brewfest took place on July 21 as part of the Bucksport Bay Festival that took place all weekend. A number of local craft breweries set up tents and offered up samples of their delicious brews for a few hours one warm afternoon.

The participating breweries were: Friars’ Brewhouse (of course), Airline Brewing Company, Blank Canvas Brewery, Lake St. George Brewing Company, Penobscot Bay Brewery, 2 Feet Brewing and Waterville Brewing Company.

Playing tourist

The warm weather is here. We've had more sun this spring than I can recall in recently memory. It's gorgeous, with cool breezes and minimal rain. And the tourists really haven't started getting out yet. All this makes for an ideal opportunity for those of us who stick around all year to get out there and enjoy what our fine state has to offer before it gets too crowded.

When I'm doing a stay-cation I like to stay within a two-hour drive from my home base. So it worked out great when I had an interview in Camden last week. As many of you know, Camden is a tourist Mecca. And for good reason - but since it's still a couple weeks before Memorial Day weekend, the flood of tourists hasn't taken over yet. This meant I could follow Route 1 and 3 all the way back to my neighborhood, looking at the towns with a tourist's appreciation, but without bad traffic.
