As Innkeepers and Hosts we are constantly asked for our opinion; about local restaurants and attractions, and as fans of the many great things Maine has to offer, and we’re usually a good place to start. Of course a little exploration, in the fresh air, among the pines and islands does the heart a world of good. But exploring beers isn’t always as pleasant. But if you like to sample local brews on vacation, life’s too short to suffer through mediocrity dressed up in a smart looking label. Luckily you don’t have to! In the interest of cutting to the chase we have put together an offering of the finest local beers for sale at our B&B.
To insure that we have yours on hand, order it before your arrival, and it will be cold and waiting for you! So, without further adieu,
For Our Maine Beer We’ve Selected
Peak Organic, Allagash & Gritty’s
Personally selected for their quality, and as representative of the best beer Maine has to offer, try these beers ice cold, after a hike or a sail, and for an additional charge, complemented perfectly by our Maine Artisan Cheese Plate.
Peak Organic Ale (Portland Maine) $5 per Bottle
Gritty’s (award winning) Pub Style (Auburn Maine) $4 per Bottle
Gritty’s Seasonal Christmas Ale $4 per Bottle
Gritty’s Best Brown Ale $4 per Bottle
Smuttynose Winter Ale (Portsmouth N.H.) $5 per Bottle
Just to show we’re not Maine-centric and can I.D. good beer, we traveled all the way south to New Hampshire for this awesome beer. And no, get your mind out of the gutter, it’s named for an Island, and no, I didn’t choose it for the label. A Belgian style with a great balance, perfect with Ducktrap smoked oysters or a Camden Deli Lobster Roll.
Allagash White (Portland Maine) $5 per Bottle
I had a guest last October from Altanta, and the first words out of her mouth were, “do you have any more of that Allagash?” This is a refreshing Maine interpretation of a traditional Belgian Wheat beer, Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.
