PORTLAND — Fans of hyper-local Bull Jagger beers — Portland Lager, Big Claw Pilsner, Baltic Porter No.19 and Dirigo Crimson Lager, were distressed to learn this week that Tom Bull and Allan Jagger will be splitting up. The first hint came from a Craigslist posting of a brewery for sale in Riverside Industrial Park, its identity confirmed via a Facebook post late Tuesday afternoon, soon followed by a post on the Bangor Daily News blog If My Coaster Could Talk and an article in The Portland Press Herald. Bull will be working with owners of the Big Claw brand to keep that popular beer in production. Bull Jagger beers will be for sale as long as supplies last. [EaterWire]

DEERINGPortland Press Herald blogger The Beer Babe stops in at The Great Lost Bear to sample two new beers from locally breweries, only available on tap. She tries Funky Bow Brewery's freshman effort, End of the Line Pale Ale (yes, named for the Traveling Wilburys song) and finds it has "a very professional quality to it" ... with "no trace of the 'homebrew taste' that some new – especially smaller – breweries can be plagued by." A sample of Bunker Brewing's Penninsula Pale Ale doesn't go quite as well. "It was drinkable and had a pleasant aroma, but just didn't quite live up to my expectations." [BB]
