BANGOR – The excitement is sizzling as Bangor gears up for it’s Annual Beer Festival.
The Greater Bangor CVB announced a tasty partnership with Hops House 99 for it’s 5th Annual Bangor Beer Festival “Taste of Summer.” The event will be adding a bacon bar with 15 different kinds of bacon for you to enjoy. Some examples include, sweet, savory and crazy.
Organizers say beer and bacon is a match made in heaven.
Jodi McCarthy said “It’s such a natural. Who doesn’t love bacon and beer, so this is actual a festival idea that is spreading around the country, we’ve seen some other festivals that incorporate bacon and the reception has been huge. People really love pairing the two together.”
Matt Laman added “It’s just something that felt natural, it felt good, it’s exciting, get to try some new things and play and experiment.”
This summer’s “Wine on the Waterfront” will also feature passed hors d’oeuvres of cheeses, breads and chocolate dipped strawberries from Specialty Sweets.
Wine on the Waterfront will be held on Friday June 16th and the Bangor Beer Festival will held on Saturday the 17th.
