beerbooksSince I know I have quite a few local readers here at Brews and Books, I post a weekly round-up of beer- and book-related events in southern Maine. If you’re in the Portland area, hopefully this keeps you abreast of some of the cool events happening in your backyard. If you aren’t, here’s your excuse to come to Maine!

Ben Thomas, author of Code Breaker, will be reading from his book and signing copies at Augusta’s Lithgow Public Library. The free event starts at 6:30.

At the Great Lost Bear, brews from Saint John Brewers will only be $2.99 a pint from 5-9 as this week’s microbrew showcase. Tropical Mango Ale and Island Hoppin’ IPA are confirmed on tap from this Virgin Islands brewery.

Weekly Gank the Goblet night at the Lion’s Pride in Brunswick; order a brew from the Lion’s Pride’s featured brewery and you get to keep the glass! Call for more details.
