Maine Beer Co. is releasing two beers Aug. 30: Wolfe’s Neck IPA (celebrating and honoring the mission of the Wolfe’s Neck Center) and the newest batch of Dinner, both in bottles and on draft.

“Wolfe’s Neck reminds us of the importance of protecting land for future generations to experience and enjoy.  Dinner is our original double India pale ale with notes of intense mango, passion fruit, and pineapple, undertones of garlic, onion, and pine, and sweet aromatics of malt and caramel,” according to the brewery at 525 U.S. Route 1, Freeport. Call 221-5711.
