Skowhegan Prepares for First Craft Brew Festival Saturday 

Downtown Skowhegan will be rather festive this weekend.

It’s the town’s first-ever Craft Brew Festival on Saturday, September 3rd.

Brewers from across the state will showcase their products on Water Street.

There’ll be lots of samples of made-in-Maine beer, wine and hard cider.

Local vendors will be serving up food and live music is scheduled for the afternoon.

It’s from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., with a VIP hour beginning at 2p.m.
