Drinking Made Easy with Zane Lamprey of HDNet films in Portland, Maine

HDNet television show Drinking Made Easy has been in Portland, Maine, over the past couple of days to film for their upcoming season.

Fans of the show are familiar with Zane Lamprey, co-host, who along with his drinking companion Steve visit various drinking establishments and restaurants across the country in sort of a road trip style approach, experiencing a variety of special drinks, local customs, and just have a heck of time doing what we all wish we could get paid to do for a living, drink and have a good time.

In following the crew, we understand they filmed at some well-known bars and restaurants, and even took in a brewery… is an educational show after all, right? This Thursday and Friday they made appearances at local favorite, The Great Lost Bear, which coupled with it’s 69 beers on tap and great atmosphere will represent Portland well on the show set to air this season. We will keep our eyes open here at on the Drinking Made Easy episode guide as to when the Portland, Maine episode will air.

Keeping a close eye on Twitter and Facebook, we discovered that filming also took place at Allagash Brewing Company, where they likely took a brewery tour of the facility and perhaps “sampled” Allagash Curieux that is aged in aged in bourbon barrels. Man, I think I need a beer now. After the trip to Allagash, Zane Lamprey and the crew visited Sonny’s on Exchange Street, Vignola on Dana Street, and Grace on Chestnut Street.

While I can understand making the visit to Allagash Brewery for the show, and stopping at Grace due to the character, charm, and fascination with drinking in a renovated and restored former church, I wonder about the details of the filming at Vignola. Don’t get me wrong, and my apologies to those employees, owners, and patrons of Vignola, but I pictured from my knowledge of the show that Drinking Made Easy would have preferred and made for better television a visit to Novare Res, Gritty’s, or Three Dollar Dewey’s….all great establishments, well-frequented by the locals who appreciate their beer, and would be your typical followers of the show.

Either way, we greatly appreciate Zane’s visit to Portland, Maine, and look forward to viewing the episode when it airs later this year. We’ll keep you posted. Until then, have a nice cold one to cool off this summer, it appears it will be a warm one again in Portland.

Sebago Brewing Company set to move to New Location

Tonight will be Sebago Brewing Company’s last night (Saturday, May 21) at 164 Middle Street, so come out and wish them well, as they move to their brand spanking new location 211 Fore Street (corner of Fore Street and Franklin Arterial) which will house their state of the art brewpub, and is just blocks from the old location in the Old Port.

The new Sebago Brewing Company location will open Friday, May 27, at 11am. Again, come out and celebrate! That day, Sebago will be releasing their brand new Single Batch Series beer, Trekker Pale Ale, which is a “classic American pale ale. It is light bronze in color, with a moderate malt character up front that gives way to an increasing hop aroma with a clean dry finish”. Enjoy!
