I recently stumbled upon an older article from the NYT about Maine’s breweries, Down East, by the Pint of the Vat. While it’s a little dated, I still find it to be an enjoyable read:
We were just inside the front office of the D. L. Geary Brewing Company, where two black Labs lounged among the cubicles. The sound that followed, as we passed through a plain door into the back brewery after half a day on the road, was even sweeter, in its own way: Thaddeus Mullen, a stubbled 35-year-old brewer in a T-shirt, jeans and Boston Bruins hat, looked up and said, ”You guys want a beer?”
Enjoy the trip through Maine on a whirlwind brewery tour.
