Oktoberfest: Brewfest

October 23, 2010
Coffee Shops & Restaurants throughout the Seacoast

Dinefest is a traditional “restaurant week” full of culinary delights at a pre-fixed price provided by many of our local restaurants. The week, October 23 through October 30, kicks off with a unique day celebrating the many fabulous coffees and craft beers of our region. It’s called BREWFEST, and it will be held on Saturday, October 23! This event is being held in partnership with the Maine Brewers’ Guild. During the day, cafes will serve non-alcoholic specialty drinks and demonstrate the many flavors of teas and coffees available. That evening, participating restaurants will feature one or more Maine craft beer, along with an appropriate entrée to partner with the beer choice. Some venues will also offer special entertainment. This project is under development.
