10th Anniversary: Saturday, October 12, 2019
11:30am - 5:30pm, Water Street, Downtown Gardiner

A Gardiner Classic Now In A Brewfest Format

The 10th annual Swine & Stein brings 20+ local Maine breweries, distilleries and wineries showcasing their own favorite brews and blends, and pouring them direct to you for all day sampling.

Water Street in historic downtown Gardiner transforms into an open air beer garden. A trifecta of beverage, food, and music, this event showcases the diversity and quality of Maine craft beverages.

In celebration of local Maine agriculture, restaurants and local food vendors from Gardiner and across the state will serve up a variety of delicious culinary dishes featuring local pork and other creative cuisine.

Maine bands entertain throughout the day, and an array of unconventional games and activities encourage mingling and merriment.
