Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce to host inaugural Winter Brewfest

It can be hard to get motivated to leave the house in the middle of January, it’s cold and blustery and often there’s not much to do. The Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce intends to change that and to lure you out to the Island by hosting a new Brewfest.


The Inaugural Bar Harbor Winter Brewfest will be held on Saturday, January 16, 2016 at the Atlantic Brewing Company on Knox Lane in Bar Harbor from 11am-4pm.  This is an outdoor brewfest in January so attendees should plan on dressing for the weather, the Atlantic tasting room will be open for those who wish to warm up and because the weather in January can be unpredictable they have built in a “Blizzard Date” of January 23rd if things get messy.

“Residents of Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island are always looking for fun activities during the winter months,” said Jenny Bishop, events coordinator of the Bar Harbor Chamber. “We see this as a great opportunity to bring the community together for some fun outdoor activities celebrating local businesses.”

Tickets are now on sale, $20 for unlimited tasting and $10 for designated drivers.
