A very liquid Saturday.

.

It started out innocently enough. We needed to replace my husband’s keg in the man cave and the store where we bought the first one was out.

.

.

So we went straight to the source, Allagash brewery in Portland… where we discovered they wouldn’t accept their keg and return our deposit because we hadn’t purchased it there. They also wanted $100 deposit on a new keg and since the brewery is an hour away, we said to hell with it and just settled down to drink.

.

.

At 11:00 in the morning. Don’t judge.

.

.

Since Covid, they’ve built a large outdoor pavilion…. and we happily sampled some drafts.

.

.

A good time was had…

.

.

As were beer cheese dip and pretzels.

.

.

This Belgian dubbel called Foliage Report was especially tasty.

.

.

As we drank, a giant black limo pulled up and discharged a group of similarly dressed young men. I’m guessing it was a brewery hopping bachelor party (Maine has the largest number of craft breweries in the country. Is it any wonder I live here?) and thought that was a great idea.

👍

On our way out we had to hit the brew store…

.

.

And purchased 2 four packs of that fabulous seasonal dubbel. 2 four packs? $24.

Yikes!

.

.

And since the day was young…..

To be continued.

  1. You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning!
    Pretzels and beer. Sounds like a great combo.
    Funny about the dudes in the matching shirts? Is that in case someone gets lost?

  2. Oh man that place looks spectacular! I’d love to visit somewhere like that, but up in your neck of the woods not here. There are more vineyards surrounding El Paso than there are craft breweries. And I’ve been banned at one of them….ahem, I mean I can’t go back to one of the establishments that carry local wine. Beer cheese and pretzels totes yum!

  3. ” where we discovered they wouldn’t accept their keg and return our deposit because we hadn’t purchased it there.” Sorry but they wouldn’t get any business from me—I wouldn’t even eat their pretzels and dip!!

  4. Oh… 11am is a late start!! And I’ve paid up to $35 for a GOOD bottle of craft beer (a limited release Alesmith coffee stout)… so you’re among friends!

    I’ll snag that seasonal if I see it!!
