Four Ways to Drink MITAle During Release Week

View as Map

Since Rising Tide Brewing Co.'s Maine Island Trail Ale topped the charts of Dave Patterson's Maine Madness Beer Tournament, we've all been chomping at the bit for the return of this seasonal favorite. "The best news of all," according to Tom Atwell of Portland Press Herald, "Is that this year the beer will be available in cans." As was true of the bottles last year, a portion of the proceeds from every can sold benefits the Maine Island Trail Association, or MITA. In honor of today's release on draft and in 16oz cans, here are four great ways to enjoy #MITAle during its first week out.
