Swashbuckling Scallywags Tap Takeover At Sea


Avast ye mateys, and mark your calendars for August 19th for the Swashbuckling Scallywags Tap Takeover At Sea! We will hoist the Jolly Roger and be setting sail at 7pm Maine State Pier, leaving the Portland peninsula behind for 3 hours of swashbuckling excitement. Wear your best pirate attire, lest ye be forced to walk the plank!

Tickets be a paltry $45 and include 2 cups of the finest grog around, as well as hearty vittles by the fine folk at The Thirsty Pig. Additional beers will be a mere $6. Remember, pirates only use cash. American currency only, leave your gold doubloons at home.

The beer will be provided by Maine’s most scallywag breweries, Oxbow Brewing Company & Bissell Brothers Brewing Company. This be the first collaborative event for these two breweries, and it won’t disappoint. Each brewery will be pouring 3 different beers. We hear those rapscallions at Oxbow Brewing Company be possessing a secret weapon they will reveal onboard, but don’t worry, no cannon fire or swords will be involved. Or so they say…
