Bangor's 5th Annual Beer Festival: Tap Into Summer 2017

BANGOR - Bangor's 5th Annual Beer Festival: Tap Into Summer 2017 brought hundreds of people to the Bangor Waterfront to enjoy fun, friends, and beer.

Enthusiasts from all over visited the festival to taste beers from 25 Maine Breweries.

 

"They're talking. They're making new friends, they're seeing old friends," said Kerri Tripp, the executive director of Greater Bangor CVB, "I think that's the beauty of events like this. You are meeting people that have some of the same interests in you, meaning, like the craft breweries or things along those lines. So you really get to meet a new group of folks"

 

This year the event had a bacon bar from Hops House 99.
