You'll hear Josh and Dan talk about the beginning of brewing in Maine dating all the way back to before, during and after prohibition, right up to present day and the the resurgence of craft brewing in Maine.

Josh has selected a bunch of Maine brewed beers to have on hand for sampling during the event. I mean, you can't celebrate the history of beer in Maine without a taste, am I right?

The Maine Historical Society suggests you get there around 5pm this Thursday so you can see two exhibits on display, Maine Brews and Maine Eats: The Food Revolution Starts Here.

Registration is required for this 21+ event, tickets are $20, $15 for MHS members.
