The latest of Rising Tide's collaborative brewing efforts was introduced last night at this month's Portland Greendrinks, held at Portland Yacht Services. Maine Island Trail Ale was created in partnership with the organization of the same name, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The crisp, hoppy beer is a limited edition; a portion of sales will benefit MITA.
