Maine Brewers Festival

Both the Maine Sunday Telegram and the Bangor Daily News have published reports on the Maine Brewers Festival.

Healy and 4,999 other beer enthusiasts — tickets were limited to 5,000 — downed samples from about 15 Maine craft breweries at the Portland Expo. The 19th annual festival drew a mixture of beer connoisseurs, hobby brewers and people looking for a fun time with friends.

Attendees received tickets to sample up to a dozen 4-ounce glasses, choosing from 100 varieties of beer.
