The Maine Brew Fest hits Sunday River September 14-16, 2018 with beer sampling from as many as 100 Maine craft brews, an oyster tasting event, great food, family-friendly activities, and more.  

We like beer so much that we're planning a spring session, too, April 13, 2019, with more craft brews, spring skiing and snowboarding, pond skimming, concerts, and plenty of fun. 

Maine Brew Fest tickets will be on sale soon! Stay tuned. 

Schedule to come out soon. See below for last year's schedule of events.
