This Week’s Portland Phoenix includes a report on The Maine Brew Bus and their new itinerary of tours, dinners and the Hop and Go shuttle services they plan to run during happy hour.
Also keep your eyes peeled this summer for the bright green bus serving as a shuttle during happy hour (4-7 pm) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The Maine Brew Bus “Hop and Go Shuttle” will make a loop around Portland, stopping at 10 established locations to let riders on and off (the service will be free for riders and funded by charging the official stops a bi-monthly rate). The service starts next month.
Portland Coffee House Tour
I’m also happy to announce that Portland Food Map is working with The Maine Brew Bus on a Portland Coffee House Tour, taking place next Sunday June 1. Join me and Brew Bus owner Zach Poole as we visit Speckled Ax, Bard Coffee, Tandem Coffee Roasters and Coffee by Design to learn more coffee and the exceptional businesses behind this dynamic part of the local food community. Tickets are $35 per person, June 1, 12:45 – 5 pm.
