Come spend the night with us on February 9th from 5-8pm at the recently renovated historic Charles Inn in downtown Bangor! If you haven’t heard, the Charles has recently gotten a reality show face-lift that we know you want to see. On top of that, Atlantic Brewing Company will be traveling up from Bah Hahbah to treat us to some of their fantastic beers. Both the Charles and Atlantic will be sharing with us what it is that they are doing to decrease their environmental impact to make our community a greener place to live!
As usual, Greendrinks is family-friendly, although you’ll need an ID to drink alcohol. There’s a suggested $5 donation, and you’ll want to bring your own drinking vessel. If you don’t, we’ll have compostable cups for $1 or custom glassware for $5. See you there!
More about our hosts:
The Atlantic Brewing Company began as Acadia Brewing in 1990. At first the brewery was located inside the Lompoc Cafe in downtown Bar Harbor and had a maximum capacity of just one barrel at a time. Within a few years the demand for our beers had grown so much that we moved the brewery two doors down from the restaurant and increased our capacity to seven-barrel batches. However, by 1998, we had outgrown that facility as well and so we moved again – this time to our current location on the Knox Road. Our estate brewery was built on the grounds of a 19th century Maine farmstead, that employs native vegetation and local stonework.
Our tasting room is open daily from late May to mid October. Tours are offered every day in season at 2, 3, and 4pm and are limited to 25 people per tour. Spots for the tour are filled on a first-come first-served basis so make sure to arrive early!
Our brewery is located minutes from downtown Bar Harbor, and we are open to visitors throughout the summer season. Built on a ten acre Maine farm, the property was designed to create an experience where visitors could learn about small-scale beer production in a country setting. The grounds house our production facilities, tasting room, and Mainely Meat BBQ – where the full line of Atlantic Brewing beers is available on tap. The award winning Bar Harbor Brewing line is also available exclusively at our downtown tasting room at 8 Mount Desert Street.
The Charles Inn in downtown Bangor:
This historic inn is nestled within an old commercial building (Est. 1873 – The Phenix Block) in the heart of West Market Square in historic Downtown Bangor, Maine. Dining, theatre, museums, shopping, concerts, events and community things to see and do are closer than walking distance.
