What is Swine & Stein Brewfest?

Gardiner’s most popular event of the year transforms historic downtown Water Street in Gardiner into a brewfest, featuring Maine’s best breweries, wineries and distilleries in an open air beer garden along historic Water Street. Enjoy a full line up of great music, tasty food vendors featuring pork and other delicious meals along with fun games and entertainment all day long.

Since 2009 this annual event continues to draw crowds to enjoy local food offerings, delicious Maine craft beers, and a great lineup of local live music from Maine bands. A beer tasting showcases the incredible diversity and quality of Maine made beers. In celebration of local agriculture, restaurants and food vendors from across the state serve up a variety of delicious culinary dishes featuring local pork and other food options. Adding to the festivities, a line-up of bands entertains throughout the day. An array of unconventional games and activities also encourages mingling and merriment.

Don’t miss out on this outdoor, urban brew fest in the setting of one of Maine’s most charming main streets!


Updates on the plans for the event in 2021 will be posted here, stay tuned for more details soon – cheers!
