Josh Christie

On Friday, February 28th at 6 PM, the Library will host Maine author and beer blogger Josh Christie for a two-part book talk and beer tasting. The free public event will open in the Library’s Callahan Hall with Christie speaking about his book, Maine Beer: Brewing in Vacationland.

The evening will then continue with a tour of Baxter Brewing Co. followed by a reception and beer tasting. Forage Market will be providing cheese pairings with the Baxter brews.

Maine Beer: Brewing in Vacationland combines a history of early brewing in Maine with a guide to every brewery to open in the state since the resurgence of the Maine craft beer industry in the 1980s. The book includes profiles of each brewery and dozens of historical and current images chronicling Maine’s dynamic craft beer culture, from early pioneers like D.L. Geary to up and coming local crafters like Lewiston-based Baxter Brewing Co.

Library Event PosterJosh Christie’s writing has appeared in print in the Portland Phoenix, the Maine Sunday Telegram and other publications and online as a featured columnist at He lives in Yarmouth, Maine, with his wife, cat and steadily growing beer cellar.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at both the Library and Baxter Brewing Co. on the night of the event. No registration is required.

For more information, call the Library’s Adult Services Department at 513-3135, email, or check out the official Facebook event.
