Why ME – Greendrinks from Alexander Bertoni on Vimeo.

What do you get when you mix some of Maine’s premier brewers, eclectic venues, and the most important environmental non-profits in the state? You get Portland Green Drinks, a volunteer-organized monthly event that packs every house that hosts it. In the past, it has graced the halls of the Victoria Mansion, the verdant fields of the Audubon Society, and the sea-sprayed Ocean Gateway. This month, hundreds of Mainers packed a sun-soaked Thompson’s Point for what could be the farewell event of the summer for the incredibly successful venue.

Brewers as diverse as Baxter Brewing, out of Lewiston, Sebago Brewing, out of Portland, and Urban Farm Fermentery, out of (y)East Bayside, came out to provide drinks while people laughed, chatted, and learned about the Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust (http://matlt.org/).

If you get the chance, head on out to next month’s event, they are always a blast!
