Brew Fest 2013 Announces Expansion

The KahBang Festival in collaboration with Central Street Farmhouse and Nocturnem Draft Haus are proud to announce the return of the Bangor Brew Fest to the KahBang Festival.

On August 10th at the Bangor Waterfront, over 15 showcasing breweries, including Sierra Nevada, Unibroue, and Sam Adams, will be highlighted along with live music performances, exhibitors, and special guest speakers. The Bangor Brew Fest is about discovering new micro-brews, flavors and breweries.

“Nocturnem has always been on a mission to support the breweries that offer better beer choices in Maine and have spent many years cultivating relationships with them in hopes of promoting a Festival in our area. This year that becomes a reality. We are proud of our business, our home town, our constituents and our guests. We get asked the question, ‘Well, why would you pick Bangor?’ Our answer is ‘Why not Bangor!’”-Gene Beck, Owner of Nocturnem

The Bangor Brew Fest will consist of 3 separate sessions; an afternoon session from Noon – 3 pm, a special VIP session from 4 – 5 pm, and an evening session from 5 – 8 pm. Tickets to each session will go on sale May 10th, and are available here. The VIP session will feature samples of exclusive labels by select participating breweries.

Brew Fest ticket holders are invited to attend lectures throughout the day from brewing experts. Including special guest speaker John Palmer, author and self publisher of “How to Brew”, on Saturday, August 10th in the guest speaker tent. Home brewing and equipment demos will also be held on site throughout each Brew Fest session, and will be open to the public.

Also at the Brew Fest, Central Street Farmhouse will be announcing the 3rd annual Maine Homebrewers Competition finalists.
