Bier Cellar West Grand Opening July 11 2018, 2 Comments
In late May we opened the doors on our second store, Bier Cellar West, in Gorham, Maine. We've been so excited to meet new customers and neighbors, as well as see some old faces that now have a bit easier of a trek to one of our shops. After about a month and a half, it's time to have a party. Come join us Saturday, July 14th from 1-5pm at our new shop at 593 Main Street in Gorham.
To celebrate we decided to host our neighbors in the brewing community right here in Gorham and just over the border in Westbrook to come in and sample their beers for you. We will host Lone Pine, Sebago and Mast Landing throughout the afternoon. We have also invited National Distributors and Crush Distributors to bring in their best Summer wine lineup, because despite our name, we aren't just beer fans, we love wine, cider and mead just as much.
Our tasting schedule is set as:
Lone Pine: 1-2pm
Sebago Brewing: 2-4pm
Mast Landing Brewing: 3-5pm
National Distributors: 1-3pm
Crush Distributors: 3-5pm
We will also have bottle and can releases throughout the day. These will all be first come, first serve with per person limits set to try to spread them out a bit. We are excited to see our first bottles from Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen in about a year. Always an honor to have the two best producers of traditional Belgian Lambic in the world represented. These bottles have become amazingly scarce in the 6 years we have been open and I have to believe this is the first time these breweries have had bottles available in Gorham. We will also see some beers from Texas' Jester King, easily one of the best breweries in the county. We have a collaboration to release from Maine's Allagash and Chicago's Off Color Brewing, a witbier produced with citrus fruit and wild yeast. We have the only cases in the State of Decadent Delight, an imperial stout collaboration between Evil Twin and Decadent Ales with lots of tasty adjuncts. We have a drop from Ohio's Hoof Hearted, easily one of the most sought after breweries in the country right now. Finally, we have the only drop of Jonah from Mast Landing that we will see for the entire summer. Here is the schedule of releases:
1pm: Cantillon Oude Gueuze, Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus, 3 Fonteinen Oude Kriek, Jester King/Kernel Colonel Toby, Jester King Simple Means, Allagash/Off Color Ghost Lemons
2pm: Decadent Ales/Evil Twin Decadent Delight, Hoof Hearted South of Eleven, Hoof Hearted Max Profits
3pm: Mast Landing Jonah Double IPA
We will also have merchandise giveaways throughout the day. We will have raffle tickets to enter those and you do not have to be present to win. We will be giving away:
Bier Cellar Gift Cards
Bier Cellar Merch (Glasses, Shirts, Tank Tops, Bottle Openers)
Brewery Merch (Glasses, Shirts, Swag)
We hope to see some new and familiar faces to help us celebrate. There is parking located all around our building, please respect our neighbors and park in lined spaces. For those of you visiting for the first time, we are in a small strip mall right next door to Dunkin Donuts. Please bring a valid ID if you wish to participate in the tastings.
