BenPages & Pints AprilThe Lewiston Public Library will be continuing its Pages & Pints book talk and beer tasting series with author and blogger Ben Keene on Friday, April 25th at 6:00 pm. The free public event will open in the Library’s Callahan Hall with Keene speaking about his book, The Great Northeast Brewery Tour.

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

The Great Northeast Brewery Tour profiles 62 standout breweries in the Northeastern United States, from Maine to Maryland.
