Bread and Brews is Back!
Co-hosted by MOFGA and the Maine Grain Alliance.
Join us on the MOFGA grounds for a celebration of Maine-grown grain! We’ll be highlighting the people and businesses who use this grain to make bread and beer.
Inside the Exhibition Hall there will be a beer tasting with local breweries, and outside and in the kitchen we’ll have a full line-up of workshops. Live music and food for sale outside.
The Maine Grain Alliance will also be hosting a special workshop called “Pizza at Home and in the Pub – Committing to Local Grains” before the main event begins. (Tickets sold separately here.) They will be baking up treats in their wood-fired oven, too!
$50 ($45 for MOFGA/MGA members.)
$25 ($20 for MOFGA/MGA members) for those not participating in the beer tasting.
Free for kids under 12.
