Bissell Brothers Brewing Co. is a brewery made for the Instagram age.
Colorful cans and graphic B’s fill Bissell’s feed, popping off the screen as art pieces as much as advertisements. Good light (and tacos) always seem to fill the tap room in Portland, Maine. The hazy IPAs don’t need a filter.
A recent visit confirms the place is as stunning as the pictures, with polished concrete floors, high ceilings, and garage doors that open onto an airy patio. The current space, out by the airport and a music venue in a development called Thompson’s Point, opened in June 2016, and is Bissell’s second Portland location (the first was across the street from Allagash).
“The process was very nerve-wracking, but when the dust settled, I realized that everything had somehow gone almost exactly to plan,” cofounder Peter Bissell says of the move. “There’s not a day that goes by that I am not so thankful we took that chance.”
Peter and his brother Noah grew up in central... Read More

DOVER-FOXCROFT — A proposed 2018-19 SAD 41 budget of $9,077,841 was approved with all 15 articles passing with minimal discussion over 20 minutes during the annual district budget meeting on June 21 at the Penquis Valley School. The near $9.08 million total is now moved to a referendum in the district towns of Atkinson, Brownville, LaGrange and Mlo on Thursday, June 28 for a “yes” or “no” vote.
The budget for 2018-19 represents a $577,270 increase from the current year’s figure of about $8.5 million. Next year SAD 41 will be receiving about $5,730,900 in Essential Programs and Services (EPS) funds from the state, a $615,045 increase.
In order to receive the $5.73 million-plus the four SAD 41 communities need to raise $1,585,625. “The local required amount was up $16,694.75 from last year, that’s what is is required by the state in order to receive the EPS money,” Superintendent Michael Wright said.
Another $733,094 in... Read More
