Any old bar can pour you a pint. Where do serious beer lovers settle in among their tribe? A brewery’s taproom is a beautiful thing. Really, it is — and not just because “local sourcing” is the buzz phrase of the millennium. There’s something undeniably cool about sipping a beer where it was brewed, about a physical space that aesthetically complements the suds you’re sipping. Maine has great taprooms, and you should visit as many as possible.

But for my money, drinking beer in a taproom is like eating steak on a ranch — a cool novelty, if you’re visiting Argentina or something, but really, how much steak are you going to put away, out there in the middle of the pasture? Sure, you’ll have a lot of cuts to choose from, but isn’t it all the same beef? For serious meat consumption, I want a world-class steakhouse. And for serious beer drinking, give me a great beer bar any day of the week.

For serious beer drinking, give me a great beer bar any day of the week.

Luckily, Maine has its share of those too. A great beer bar impresses with the breadth of its offerings, but it’s more than the sum of its tap list. It’s someplace where the clientele is chummy, the food comforting, the bartenders beer-geeky but not snobby. If the taps are listed on a chalkboard, then huzzah. If you can throw peanut shells on the floor, then so much the better. And if you need elaborate directions to find the place, then you’re almost certainly on the right track. Here are a few favorites (you’ll have to ask around for directions).

Nocturnem Draft Haus

Taps: 16, mostly locals with a few hard-to-find imports, plus 200ish bottles. Vibe: Sophisticated coffee bar. Dim lighting, exposed brick, old tin ceilings, couches, piano.

Longer days mean more eggs, and a new spring recipe is hatched.
by Annemarie Ahearn
Each morning, I head out to the coop to water my six mixed-breed chickens, scoop a bit of feed into their trough, and collect eggs. The darkness of winter is well behind us, and the girls are laying away with the encouragement of sunlight. Come June, when the days are at their longest, eggs pile high, begging for devoted egg cookery. In the garden, the peas begin to climb their nets, the radishes swell out of the ground, and the asparagus grow a foot a day, making it impossible to keep up with the harvest. The herb garden is tall and green, yet still young and tender. Hence, an asparagus and herb frittata is born.


Asparagus and Herb Frittata

Serves 8 to 10

2 tablespoons butter

2 spring onions, chopped finely

a pinch of kosher salt,
plus more to taste

12 spears asparagus

12 eggs

½ cup milk

freshly ground pepper to taste

½ cup crumbled goat cheese

2 tablespoons minced chives,
sorrel, parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt the butter in a large cast-iron skillet. Sauté the onions with a pinch of salt over low heat until soft and translucent. Add the asparagus and cook until bright green. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Add the milk, a bit more salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture into the sautéing asparagus. On medium heat, let the eggs cook until the outside edge sets (about 5 minutes). Do not stir. Sprinkle on the goat cheese and half of the herbs. Place the frittata in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until it is golden brown, puffy, and has set in the middle. Remove from the oven and enjoy warm or at room temperature. Garnish with the remainder of the herbs. Serve with a simple salad.

Everyone has a different idea of the perfect Maine summer — one man’s breezy beach day is another’s mountain climb or demolition derby. In our May issue, we assembled an oversized guide to Maine’s busiest season, so everyone can pick and plan their perfect summer itinerary. Here’s an excerpt from that guide, letting you in on four quiet beaches you may not have visited yet.

 

Birch Point Beach State Park

This beach is hemmed in by regal pines and huge stone ledges that just beg to be picnicked upon. Open daily, Memorial Day through Labor Day. 9 a.m. to sunset. $1–$3. Access via Ballyhac Rd., Owls Head. 207-941-4014. maine.gov/birchpoint

Lamoine State Park

Great Mount Desert Island views without the summer crowds? You bet. This quiet shorefront park has campgrounds and picnic tables for extended stays or afternoon day trips. Open daily, May 15–October 15. 9 a.m. to sunset. $1.50–$4.50. 23 State Park Rd., Lamoine. 207-667-4778. maine.gov/lamoine

Laudholm Beach

Willing to work for a perfect beach day? This one’s for you. Hike through the wooded trails of the Wells Reserve and you’ll be rewarded with the soft sand of Wells’ lesser-known beach. Open daily, year-round. 7 a.m. to sunset. $1–$4. 342 Laudholm Farm Rd., Wells. 207-646-1555. wellsreserve.org

Roque Bluffs State Park

On a cool spring morning in May we set out to find a new hike. Mt. Zircon in Peru, Maine was close by our house in Wayne and boasted large views of the Presidential mountain range. This lovely nest with Robin’s eggs and a newly hatched chick along the way gave us renewed strength to climb the last quarter mile for breathtaking views!

Mexican on the coast. Cupcakes on the farm. Relish on the roadside. Brûlée in the bike lane.

Who makes the tastiest taco? Where’s the loveliest lobsterboat tour? What is the one hike you just can’t skip? We logged the miles to bring you this handy, savvy, witty guide to our favorite Maine everything. Here’s an excerpt from the July issue, featuring this year’s Editors’ Choices for Best of Maine “Food and Drink.”


Best Treat in a Cup
Jarva Cakes

Michelle Shields has a Maine foodie pedigree. Her husband’s family has operated Shields Meats in Kennebunk since 1923. In 2007, she started Fresh Fruit Frenzy to deliver fruit and veggies to local businesses. And in 2013, in response to husband Dean’s sweet tooth, she came up with a single-serving lava cake in a cup, the first of five flavors of Jarva Cakes, a just-add-water-and-microwave solution to what’s for dessert. The success of Jarva Cakes is a tribute to the delicious things Michelle and daughters Sydney and Keisha can do with chocolate ganache. 207-221-5655. jarvacakes.com

Best Hamburger from a Gas Station
Tolman Pond Market

The take-out kitchen at Rockport’s Tolman Pond Market isn’t much to look at, and nothing about the menu — pizza, hot dogs, Italians — suggests this Route 90 gas station might secretly churn out a gut-busting epicurean delight. But the editor-in-chief of a certain Rockport-based magazine has developed a carnivorous obsession with Tolman Pond’s burger, gradually hooking her staff. The secret is grass-fed local beef from Curtis Custom Meats, down the road in Warren, but the perfectly toasted bun and generous glob of mayo don’t hurt either. Worth a stop, even on a full tank. 790 West St., Rockport. 207-236-2575.

Best Authentic Mexican
Vazquez Mexican Takeout

Romana Vazquez’s homemade tortillas are the key. Using imported ingredients (“There’s nothing around here that you can use to make authentic Mexican food,” says daughter Juana), Romana creates from-scratch tortillas just the way she made them growing up in Apaseo el Alto, in central Mexico. That provides the foundation for a true south-of-the-border experience Down East. Further cred: Vazquez Mexican Takeout originated in a bus, where Romana sold tacos, burritos, and chimichangas — along with more exotic selections like guarache, pozole, and mole — to migrant rakers in Washington County’s blueberry fields. 38 Main St., Milbridge. 207-598-8141.

Best Farm Stand
Stutzman’s Farm Stand & Bakery

There are farm stands, and then there’s Stutzman’s. Third- generation farmers Sid and Rainey Stutzman have turned a small, backroad farm stand into a community hub, with fresh produce, yes, but also homemade baked goods, wood-fired pizza, and Sunday brunch set to live music. Regulars include painter Alan Bray, who points out, “You can sit in the dining room, look out over the farm, and see people picking what you’re eating.” It doesn’t get more farm-to-table than that. 891 Douty Hill Rd., Sangerville. 207-564-8596.

Best Relish
Flo’s, Cape Neddick

Yes, you can buy it online. But to truly relish the experience, you must experience this relish onsite, at Flo’s famous roadside stand on Route 1 in Cape Neddick. (Be prepared to wait; the hours are just 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) Flo’s much-heralded relish is the point guard of condiments, making all other ingredients better. The mustard kicks harder, the mayo is mellower, the ketchup (if you must) is ketchuppier. Ingredients are famously secret, but sweet onions and molasses are involved. Served with a hot dog, a steamed bun, and not much else. 1359 U.S. Rte. 1, Cape Neddick. 800-255-8401. floshotdogs.com

2015 Best of Maine, Food and Drink

Best Pub Where Locals and Visitors Mingle
Lakeshore House

Although Monson’s Lakeshore House has been a saloon of some sort since the 19th century, Rebekah Anderson transformed it in 2006 into a welcome, low-key gathering spot for locals, Appalachian Trail hikers, snowmobilers, skiers, and sportsmen. The comfort-heavy menu ranges from pot roast to quesadillas (for which the menu offers a pronunciation key) to deep-fried fiddleheads (in season). The snug, seven-table room (and five-seat bar) fills up for open-mic Thursdays and live music Sundays, but there’s more seating outside, overlooking sparkling Lake Hebron. Its shoulder-to-shoulder nature is part of its charm: we dare you to not make friends here. 9 Tenney Hill Rd., Monson. 207-997-7069. thelakeshorehouse.com

Best Successful Foodie Kickstarter
Brûlée Bike

Four years ago, Portlander Charlie Compton attended a food truck rally in San Francisco and realized he wanted his own mobile snack shop. One problem — the 15-year-old Compton can’t drive. So he dreamed up the Brûlée Bike, a bicycle towing a specialized trailer full of the French dessert. A spring Kickstarter campaign netted nearly $1,600 in start-up funds, and if his permits are approved, the entrepreneurial teen gourmand hopes to peddle (and pedal) his first batches at Portland’s First Friday Art Walks this summer.

Best Baked Goods You Can Only
Get on a Farm
Tall Trees Snack Shop

You’ve not eaten a cupcake this summer until you’ve eaten a chocolate beet cupcake with vanilla-and-beet buttercream frosting from the pop-up treat mavens at Tall Trees. Agrarian pastry queens Marcy Taubes, a journeyman farmer in China, and Sarah Trainer, a Boston-based artist and baker, borrow kitchen space to churn out their dark and decadent cupcakes, plus sweets like salted honey pies and savory stuff like flaky parsnip-and-pork handpies. Tall Trees has no brick-and-mortar outlet, so watch for their year-old, ephemeral snack stand at various open-farm days throughout the year. facebook.com/talltreessnackshop

Best Totally Unexpected Lunch Spot
MaineGeneral Medical Center

Maine’s most affordable decent lobster roll might be 3 ounces of claw and knuckle meat on a toasted roll for $7.99 at Augusta’s MaineGeneral Medical Center cafeteria. The quality of MaineGeneral’s cuisine improved tremendously two years ago, when the hospital adopted a hotel-style room-serve system. The new approach reduced waste but more surprisingly, commissary fare now includes genuinely tasty, healthy dishes like butternut-squash-and-apple soup, pumpkin mousse, Mongolian seitan over brown rice, and spicy African peanut soup. Around Augusta, word among non-patients is out. “Oh yes,” confirmed a caf staffer during a recent lunch visit, “people come in all the time just because they like the food.” 35 Medical Center Pkwy., Augusta. 207-626-1000.

Three new guides point hikers to the state’s best trails. I rarely hike anywhere in Maine without slipping my Maine Mountain Guide in the outside pocket of my daypack. Published by Appalachian Mountain Club, it is by far the most comprehensive guide available to the state’s hiking paths, and its highly detailed trail descriptions make it almost impossible to get lost. It’s so inclusive and the language so dispassionate, however, that it’s not especially helpful for choosing new places to explore. For that, I want a more selective guide. Three very good new ones are in bookstores this summer.

It’s nice to see the editor of the Maine Mountain Guide, Carey Michael Kish, get to express his enthusiasm for walking in the woods in AMC’s Best Day Hikes Along the Maine Coast (Appalachian Mountain Club Books, Boston; paperback, 272 pages; $18.95). In selecting 50 of his favorite trails from Kittery to Eastport, Kish maintains the AMC’s reputation for thorough directional cues (“wind downhill from this point, bearing left around a big bull pine”), while offering rich descriptions of flora, fauna, views, and occasionally a little area history.

Greg Westrich covers different territory in Hiking Maine: A Guide to the State’s Greatest Hiking Adventures (Falcon Guides, Guilford, Conn., paperback, 326 pages, $22.95), which includes 65 hikes throughout the state, and the pocket-size (nice!) Best Easy Day Hikes: Camden (Falcon Guides, Guilford, Conn., paperback, 126 pages, $14.95), with 26 hikes scattered along the midcoast from Trevett to Stockton Springs. Westrich is an engaging guide, pointing out where to watch or listen for the kinds of things that make us want to be in the forest — black-backed woodpeckers peeling bark off snags on the Bold Coast Trail in Cutler, for example, or the loud colonies of common terns at Nahmakanta Lake.

All three books have clear maps, difficulty ratings, distance and time estimates — all the details you need to plan a safe trip in the woods.

What’s Independence Day without a little sparkle? These towns are booming with patriotic spirit.

Eastport Fourth of July

This Down East town does Independence Day like no other in Maine. The five-day celebration includes everything from pancake breakfasts to a codfish relay race — but the grand finale fireworks show on the waterfront is a true stunner. July 4. Eastport Waterfront. eastport4th.com

Portland Stars and Stripes Spectacular

It’s only six years old, but this southern Maine celebration is already drawing crowds of 50,000 revelers.

Eastern Promenade, Portland. july4thportland.com

Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor packs a lot into its single day of Fourth festivities: craft fair, seafood festival, parade, lobster races (no, not boats, just crustacean vs. crustacean), live music, and fireworks over Frenchman Bay. July 4. 207-288-5103. barharborinfo.com

Bath Heritage Days

Cap off Bath’s four-day festival (featuring a fireman’s muster, chili cook-off, and antique car show) with live music and brilliant fireworks. July 5. 207-442-7291. bathheritagedays.com

Amazing Race
July 17-18

DEE1507Guide_Cal01_optThe best rally car drivers in the U.S. take to the dirt and gravel logging roads of western Maine and northern New Hampshire (at around 100 miles per hour) at the 25th running of the New England Forest Rally. The action kicks off at Sunday River Resort, where spectators can gather at the starting line, be bussed to various other spectator stations, and wander “Rally Village” for food, drink, and entertainment. More Subarus churning up mud than the parking lot at the Common Ground Country Fair. Free. Sunday River Resort, Newry. newenglandforestrally.com

DEE1507Guide_Cal02_optNice Play If You Can See It
July 22-August 15

A Prohibition-era temperance enforcer clashes with a gang of bootleggers in the 2012 Tony Award–winning musical Nice Work If You Can Get It. Grab a gin from the Ogunquit Playhouse bar and visit the 1920s with Sally Struthers and George Gershwin. $44. 10 Main St., Ogunquit. 207-646-5511. ogunquitplayhouse.org

“Weird Al” Yankovic
July 26

Have some more yogurt, have some more Spam. It doesn’t matter if it’s fresh or canned. — “Eat it” by “Weird Al” Yankovic

That “Weird Al” Yankovic has made a nearly 40-year career out of silly parody songs is an impressive achievement. Even more impressive that he’s just coming off a Billboard number-one album and a Grammy win, and that he’s in the middle of a 120+ date world tour. His concerts feature dancers, video, many costume changes, and yeah, accordion. And spoofed musical luminaries from Kurt Cobain to Don McLean have sung his praises. It’s a “Weird Al” world — we’re all just parody fodder. $18–$52. Maine State Pier, Commercial St., Portland. 207-358-9327. waterfrontconcerts.com

The Decemberists
July 29

Hailing from that other Portland, The Decemberists are perhaps rock’s most literate and esoteric band ever to make it big — this because the group’s sometimes-dense lyrics are set to music that’s hooky, foot-stomping, and fun. The same could be said, by the way, of the opening act, Maine’s own Lady Lamb. 8 p.m. $40–$45. State Theatre, 609 Congress St., Portland. 207-956-6000. statetheatreportland.com
