Three Pint Stance - Quick Sips!

Turns out, there’s a fair amount of local beer-related news happening right now! Time for another installment of the semi-regular Three Pint Stance feature – Quick Sips!

First off, I want to thank everyone who sent in limericks this week. The grand total of submitted limericks (Allen and my contributions aside) now sits at … two, both from readers from England.

(Old England is REALLY making you look bad, New England.)

Anyway, more on limericks later. For now, we have a beer style to explore!

ast week, I made a semi-desperate solicitation to you, the reading public, as to where this here beer-themed column should head in the coming weeks, months, years, etc.

To be quite honest, the response was underwhelming, to say the least. Shame on all of you who didn’t reach out. I am hurt, and to be honest a little embarrassed. I put myself out there and you left me out in the cold.

(Editor’s note: Seriously – it’s all we heard about. Tim’s too fragile for this kind of thing.)

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.)

It’s tough to think about right now, but the time is coming when the mercury’s going to really start rising. When that time does eventually arrive, the importance of properly chilled beer cannot be understated. Sure, there are certain styles of beer that taste great at warmer temps, but that’s not what we’re talking about right now. In short, I want a bottle of Kolsch and I want it as cold as you can get it!

National Beer Day is cool, but let’s talk about Maine Beer Day

So, as you can probably tell by the cover story that National Beer Day is coming right up – April 7, to be exact. This is observed in recognition of the Cullen-Harrison Act in 19, that redefined what an intoxicating beverage was under the Volstead Act, thus allowing for the production of traditional beer in the USA once again in 1933. While it didn’t mark the end of prohibition, it definitely was an important step along that road and most importantly allowed for the making of beer again! Our long national nightmare was finally over.

(Editor’s note: I literally just told them about this like six pages ago.)

Black Bear Brewing making tracks to Bangor

BANGOR – Orono’s popular Black Bear Brewing is making tracks to Bangor; the company will open its new taproom this Friday in the Nichols Block on Exchange Street.

WATERBORO – We live in a world where things change pretty fast. No matter what business you’re in, you have to be flexible and willing to adapt to whatever the marketplace is throwing at you.

It’s as true in the craft beer world as anywhere else.

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.

And we are back!

For those of you just tuning in, this is sort of an ongoing thing we have here, and while I am usually the inclusive type, at this point you’re too late. Go back to the beginning of the series and catch up. Maybe see you next week? I’ll wait.

(Editor’s note: No. No, you won’t.)
