Tonight's Greendrinks; Blue Rooster Food Co.'s New Pigs

EAST END— Rising Tide Brewing Company's Maine Island Trail Ale debuts tonight at Portland Greendrinks. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at Portland Yacht Services at 58 Fore Street in Portland. What is Greendrinks, you ask? It's a a sort of periodic, informal, beer-fueled networking event that raises cash for environmental non-profits. Tonight's event is to benefit The Maine Island Trail Association (MITA). Admission (21+, clearly) is $5 if you bring your own drinking vessel. If yours breaks en route, your admission options become slightly more expensive: $10 for a corn cup or $12 for an "executive" pint glass. [FB]
