The Boothbay Craft Brewery will also host a demonstration of brewing techniques and Josh Christie, author of MaineBeer: Brewing in Vacationland, will give a lecture on the history of brewing and beer in Maine.
The Rocktide Trolley will be providing a special trip from their standard downtown route to arrive/depart from the Museum at approximately 12, 2 and 4. Watch for a detailed schedule posted here closer to the event dates.
