Embrace the sweet nectar of life. And dedicate a day to enjoying it.

That's what many in central Maine will do on April 18 if two businessmen in the region have their way.

Portland has long hosted the Maine Brewers Festival. And a number of Maine's craft brewers have traditionally taken their goods to Acadia's Oktoberfest in Southwest Harbor.

This year, for the first time, Maine's capital will host 15 of the state's beer makers for a day of tasting pale ales and chilled lagers -- two, three-hour sessions of it -- at the Augusta Civic Center.

Like Wine, the Right Beer Can Complement Any Meal
This month, my wine column switches gears from wine to beer. With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, many of us become a wee bit Irish and celebrate the occasion with a pint or two. Beer and wine share many similarities. Both were made and refined by monks. Also, both are influenced by the fermentation process. Wine can be broadly seg...

Beer, traditionally a second class citizen to wine, is getting an image lift with the release of the first ever beer tasting kit.

November 9, 2006 -- Ben Franklin's adage that "beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy," has never been truer. The last 20 years has seen a renaissance of artisan brewing in the United States that not only has matched European legacy styles in quality but gone beyond them in sheer creativity.

Unfortunately, many Americans still don't realize just how good beer can be.
