Portland Food Launch Party Week

Tonight! Get thee to The Thirsty Pig on Exchange St. in Portland for a limited release from Bissell Brothers Brewing. Swish, a hopped ale, will be available tonight (and likely only tonight) as a thank you to the pub where the Bissell Brothers got their start. Get there at 7pm to get a taste of what’s sure to be a delicious brew. Even if you are late to the party and miss the Swish, the Thirsty Pig has a great line up of local beer to console yourself, including (as of yesterday anyways) Maine Beer Company’s Dinner. 
The launch party for my book, Portland Food: the Culinary Capital of Maine, is this Saturday, May 31st! It will be at Sherman’s Books, 49 Exchange Street, in Portland, where another History Press author, Josh Christie, works. I will be there from 1-3pm, signing books and offering some local treats that are featured in the book. Please stop by!

Anestes of Portland Food Map is teaming up with the Maine Brew Bus to offer a tour about a different kind of brewed beverage – coffee. The specialty “Portland Loves Coffee” tour is this Sunday, June 1 from 1-5pm. You’ll tour several different Portland coffee houses and learn about the roasting and brewing of Portlander’s second favorite drink. Anestes knows and loves his coffee, so it will be an entertaining and educational tour.
