Maine Brew Fest September 14-16, 2018 Sunday River Resort

Info on the Brew Fest at Sunday River

The Maine Brew Fest starts September 14th. It’s at Sunday River Resort. Friday Night there is a Beer Peak Dinner 6:45 pm – 11:30 pm
Celebrate September’s full moon–a Harvest Moon–with a scenic Chondola ride to Sunday River’s mid-mountain Peak Lodge, food and fun, and plenty of beer. This special Full Moon Beer Dinner kicks off our Maine Brew Fest with our friends from Shipyard Brewing.

Beer enthusiasts can expect a six-pint, four-course meal of seasonal fall favorites designed to pair with Shipyard beer, plus live music, and ample food. Enjoy a cold brew on our outdoor patio prior to dinner, more beers and food during dinner, and then take in the stunning views of the Sunday River valley lit by the full moon overhead as your ride the Chondola lift back down to South Ridge. You may load the Chondola at 6:45pm; the cocktail reception begins at 7pm.
