"It only makes sense, then, that local brewers and coffee roasters should team up, seemingly en masse lately, to produce stouts, porters and ales brewed with coffee.

Every time I see a large display of pumpkin beer at a grocery store I think, “Who the hell is still buying this stuff?”
These displays show up in late August – when summer is still very much a thing, mind you – and take up significant real estate in grocery store aisles and on beer shelves.
I don’t know anyone who drinks pumpkin beer anymore, but apparently enough people still do to warrant displays so big you’d think Mainers only swill pumpkin beer in the fall.

Heather Sanborn left a lucrative career practicing law to help her husband grow Rising Tide Brewery in 2012. But at the time it was illegal for breweries to charge for samples of beer in a tasting room. So Sanborn became a member of the Maine Brewers’ Guild and utilized her legal expertise to play an instrumental part in getting the law changed.
The result has been an explosion in beer tourism for Southern Maine, attracting tourists from throughout New England and beyond.
