Local Happy Hour Bangor/Orono-Friday June 16
June 16, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm
First up on our trip, will be the shiny new stainless tanks at Geaghan Brothers Brewing Co’s new 20 barrel facility in Brewer. Geaghans has been setting the standard in our area for several years now in their Restaurant and Pub in Bangor, but this newly opened facility will allow their beer to reach beyond the Pub walls. Although brewing very clean, crisp and approachable beers is their mantra, they also know how to ramp it up in the specialty department. They have invited us in for a private tasting and tour of their beautiful facility with one of the brewery staff. We’ll even have time for a round or two of cornhole. The tour includes samples and of course there will be growlers and merchandise to purchase and take home with you.
Next up, one of the area’s newest breweries, Marsh Island Brewing is the brainchild of Clay Randall & Ricky England. Opened in September of 2015 they areone of Maine’s newest microbreweries. The operations director Rick, is also responsible for the amazing beer selection at Swett’s Hogan Road Deli at 451 Hogan Road in Bangor. They’ve been setting the bottle scene for years and now they brew their own. Ricky and Clay will be around to sample you and answer questions. We will visit their brewery and newly opened tasting room.
Next we visit, Orono Brewing Company, one of the area’s newest and best. OBC is a custom built draught room in the bottom floor of a historic 1848 brick building. Exposed old brick and wooden beams, tables and benches made from giant reconditioned planks, and a bar hand-built from copper give a special ambiance to the tap room. See head brewer Asa Marsh-Sachs through the looking glass windows. Enjoy OBC’s delicious creations inside or outside on the sun-soaked deck. Pizza by the slice is available to cure the munchies. We include the samples and you’re invited to purchase growlers and merchandise to go.
At the end of this local tour, we will drop you off at the back deck of Nocturnem Draft Haus, where you are invited to come in and share outstanding burgers and beer with your new found friends. Cheers!
