To celebrate Maine’s legacy of making small batches of high-quality products, L.L.Bean and five Maine craft breweries are collaborating to release outdoor-inspired, small batch craft beer to coincide with the outdoor retailer’s latest small batch of boots made in Maine.
The partnership, called the Bean Boots and Brews collaboration, involves Fogtown Brewing Co. of Ellsworth, Rising Tide of Portland, Orono Brewing Co. of Orono and Bangor, Threshers Brewing Co. of Searsmont and Mast Landing Brewing Co. of Westbrook.
Each brewery will create an exclusive beer to be served at an Oct. 18 release party at O’Maine Studios at 54 Danforth St. in Portland from 5 to 7 p.m. The invitation-only event is expected to draw 50 to 60 people, a spokesperson for L.L.Bean said. The names of the brews will be released at the event.
