Go North Portland Beer Bloggers!

The Beer Babe inspired me to visit all Maine breweries this year, a venture that almost no beer enthusiasts in the state has achieved. I don't blame them either, some breweries are a few hours away or more. Lubec Brewing company is a great example of a soon-to-open brewery that's going to be a challenge to get to. This idea of visiting all the breweries

Their American-style hoppy beers have swept the Maine craft beer market by storm. I want to start off 2015 with a sort of beer review from Bissell Brothers. Bissell imagery is very simple. The triple B logo
