Gardiner’s most popular event of the year is back! Swine and Stein Brewfest, brought to you by Burke’s Roofing and Masonry and Camden National Bank, includes all-day samples from 25+ of Maine’s best breweries, wineries and distilleries in an open air beer garden along historic downtown Water Street. Organized by Gardiner Main Street, this annual fall beer festival also features a full line up of great music, tasty food vendors, fun games and entertainment all day long. And with each ticket sold, Gardiner Main Street will donate $1 to Johnson Hall’s capital campaign to complete their vision of a fully restored 400-seat theater in downtown Gardiner.


From barrel aged beers to award winning rum, you’ll enjoy brews and blends not always found at the store, for a true handcrafted, small batch experience. To tantalize all taste buds, hard cider, wine and craft spirits will also be on tap. Enjoy local favorites like Bateau Brewing, Jokers and Rogues Brewing, the Liberal Cup, as well as brewers from across the state – from Waterville Brewing to Portland’s Definitive Brewing – as they pour their best brews. Taste the day away with all day sampling – no beer tickets needed! General admission begins at 1pm, or come early for the exclusive VIP tasting hour at 12pm.
