Epic Gathering Event to feature Sixpoint Brewing & Lagunitas
The KAHBANG Brew Fest, sponsored by Townsquare Media, will present our first ever KAHBANG Epic Gathering, or K.E.G. Party hosted by Sixpoint & Lagunitas with BBQ by W.A. Bean & Sons on Friday, August 8th at 6PM on the Bangor Waterfront.
Come be a part of this special event as we kick off the 2014 KAHBREWFEST in style with special brews courtesy of Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Brewing and California-based Lagunitas Brewing. Bangor’s own W.A. Bean & Sons will also be there to stuff you full of delicious BBQ. Brew Fest Badges are on sale now.
We are also excited to announce the addition of several new breweries to our KAHBREWS Micro Brew Tasting event on Saturday, August 9th including Sebago, Marshall Wharf, Rising Tide, Bissel Bros., Dogfish Head and Downeast Cider. They join a roster that already includes Gneiss, UFF, Allagash, Geaghan’s, Gritty’s, Sea Dog, Pretty Things, Black Bear, Banded Horn, Six Point, Lagunitas and Foundation Brewing.
Also on Saturday, August 9th, we’ve assembled a “brewer’s dozen” of some of the finest homebrewers from the greater Bangor area to sample out the tastiest DIY brews on either side of the Penobscot. Modern-day homebrew is daring, nonconformist, and pioneering, and often sets the tone for large-scale commercial trends. Come talk to the brewers, sample their creations, and see for yourself why homebrewing can be more than just a hobby.
The Homebrewers Expo will also feature ongoing beer brewing demos by the staff of Central Street Farmhouse. Learn the basics of brewing beer at home in the amount of time it would take you to watch a movie at our Extract Brewing 101 demo. Or up your game and learn about mashing, sparging, and wort-chilling at our All-Grain Brewing 101 demo. And of course, special guests The Brewing Network, will be there to broadcast live from the event!
