Special ale marks city's 250th birthday

Written by  Taylor Vortherms Friday, June 14, 2013 at 4:47 pm

ELLSWORTH — Something is brewing in this town.

In honor of the city of Ellsworth’s 250th anniversary, Ellsworth Sestercentennial Ale can be found at Global Beverage Warehouse and other retail stores as of this week. Atlantic Brewing Co. in Bar Harbor produced 15 barrels of the ale that began being distributed on June 11. A 22-ounce bottle sells for $5.99.

Sample the Sestercentennial Ale at Finn’s Pub on Main Street in Ellsworth. The beer also is served on tap at the Union River Lobster Pot and some other local restaurants.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the size of the bottles of Sestercentennial Ale. The bottles are 22 ounces.
