Toast Maine’s Bicentennial this month with Maine beer
Allagash Brewing Company, based right here in Portland, has achieved national acclaim for its beer. Among their creations is Sixteen Counties, a beer that uses exclusively grains grown right here in Maine.
With 2020 the year of Maine’s 200th birthday, what better way to celebrate than by lifting a glass of a beer that’s brewed by Mainers and with Maine ingredients? Perhaps you can even sing a round of ‘The 16 Counties’ song while you enjoy a glass.
What To Expect From Sixteen Counties
Since first launching in the mid-2010s, 16 Counties has been offered in several iterations. This year’s offering has an ABV of 6.5%, making it a medium-strength beer but with plenty of flavor.
As described by Allagash, Sixteen Counties “has an amber hue with notes of honey, tropical hops, citrus, and a hint of cereal grain. The beer’s malt-forward flavor is meant to showcase the next generation of quality farming in Maine.”
Enjoying Sixteen Counties at Bruno’s
Bruno’s will have cans of Allagash Sixteen Counties available for you to enjoy beginning March 1st. Sip the beer while relaxing and watching the game in the tavern, or order it to go along with your meal in the dining room.
When you order Sixteen Counties at Bruno’s, $1 from each order will be going to support the Maine Grain Alliance to help Maine farmers. This spring, come into Bruno’s and lift a glass to support Maine farmers and celebrate our beautiful state.
