A great brewery in Bar Harbor – Atlantic Brewing Company

maine brewery

Do you like beer?  Then the Atlantic Brewing Company in Bar Harbor is a great stop.

According to their website:

The Atlantic Brewing Company began as Acadia Brewing in 1990. At first the brewery was located inside the Lompoc Cafe in downtown Bar Harbor and had a maximum capacity of just one barrel at a time. Within a few years the demand for our beers had grown so much that we moved the brewery two doors down from the restaurant and increased our capacity to seven-barrel batches. However, by 1998, we had outgrown that facility as well and so we moved again – this time to our current location on the Knox Road. Our estate brewery was built on the grounds of a 19th century Maine farmstead, that employs native vegetation and local stonework.

 

They have several locations in and around the Bar Harbor area and offer tours and tastings.  Here’s what you need to know:

The have three tours daily from Memorial Day through mid-October.  Reservations are not required, but they can only accommodate 25 people per tour.    The tours are approximately 20 minutes long, followed by a tasting. Children are allowed on the tour, but obviously not the tasting.

The addresses are:  We are at 15 Knox Road, Bar Harbor, ME 04609 and 52 Cottage Street, Bar Harbor, ME 04609

A great cafe and shop in Machias, Maine

Whole Life Natural Market Machias Maine

Just because Washington County, Maine is sparsely populated, doesn’t mean that you can’t find specialty items.   One such store is the fabulous Whole Life Natural Market and the tiny Saltwater Cafe located inside the store.

Located at 4 Colonial Way in downtown Machias, they are open six days per week (closed Sundays).  They carry most of the natural foods products that you may be familiar with at your local natural food store, but they also carry many, many local items (it’s my go-to place to purchase little local gifts for friends and family members).  They also have a table with lots of local resources and a lending library.  And… perhaps best of all… they have a good selection of local and organic wines.

The cafe is open for lunch and has sandwiches, soups and yummy desserts.  Follow their Facebook page – they post their menu daily.

Their phone is – 207-255-8855

The best coffee in DownEast Maine

Bold Coast Coffee. Maine Vacation Rental

I, personally, own two vacation rental properties in Down East Maine… both in Machiasport.  I love being a host and love to make our guests’ stay special. Whenever I can, I leave a little welcome gift for my guests.  Most often, whenever available, it’s locally roasted Bold Coast Coffee.

The local coffee company is a family affair, with the beans roasted in the family patriarch’s garage turned roaster.  I was lucky enough to have a tour of it a few years back and the spotlessly clean little ‘factory’ smelled just heavenly.  The beans are sourced in Costa Rica, on a farm owned by the coffee company where the beans are picked by hand — so there is a direct link straight from the plant to the coffee cup.

The coffee is available in several roasts — from decaf to espresso and everything in between.

It is available for purchase at several stores in Maine (listed below)  and also from the website.
