Portland Beer Week kicks off on Saturday, November 1, 2014 and runs through Friday, November 7, […]

Sometimes you drive from Bangor to Portland for beer

The haul

Sunday was a family day, a trip to Freeport spurred on by my son’s need for a new winter coat and some new pants, L.L.Bean and Carters were the destinations, but for the Lothian family a trip south always includes craft beer. To clarify, the kids don’t get any craft beer and the parents don’t […]
