Bar Harbor Beerworks

Bob and I recently went on a cruise to New England and Canada to celebrate our 25th anniversary. On the second day we were in Bar Harbor, Maine; I love Maine, especially its rocky coast. We wandered around town, did some shopping, and got lunch at the Bar Harbor Beerworks. It was a beautiful day and we sat outside on the roof-top deck. We had a really great waitress who explained the beer menu, which had a lot of local beers on it. Both Bob and I tried the Shipyard Blueberry beer. It was an ale that had hints of blueberry and we both enjoyed it. Bob followed it up with a dark beer.

When in Maine, one must have a lobster roll. I had the lobster roll two ways. They were small, but with a basket of fries to go with them, it was a filling lunch. One roll was cold with mayo, the other was warm with butter. I enjoyed both. My only complaint (after having another lobster roll the next day) was that the lobster meat was chopped.

The best part of the meal was dessert. I had a slice of blueberry pie. Oh,my,gosh. Warm out of the oven, with vanilla ice cream. It was so good! Lots and lots of little Maine blueberries, flaky crust, and none if that syrup stuff, just blueberries and crust. SO good! Bob was jealous, his Guiness chocolate cheesecake wasn't quite as good as my blueberry pie.

So if you get to Bar Harbor, give the Bar Harbor Beerworks a try. If it's in the summertime be sure to get the blueberry pie!
