Heart of Ellsworth to host Ellsworth Green Drinks
Ellsworth – Heart of Ellsworth is thrilled to announce their Green Drinks Committee will hold the next event on Tuesday, May 22nd at 5:30 pm at the Atlantic Brewing Company Midtown location naming the beneficiary of the evening, A Climate to Thrive.
Green Drinks is an international informal networking event where environmental and social-minded people meet over drinks at a bar, restaurant, nonprofit or community gathering place. These events are open to the general public, intended to drive connectivity, community, collaboration, and change within the environmental and social sector of a community. Ellsworth has joined the ranks of six other Maine cities becoming a Green Drinks community in fall of 2017.
Atlantic Brewing Midtown location will be the site of the May Green Drinks event. Atlantic Brewing Company has created Midtown to develop new and exciting small batch beers only seven barrels at a time. This pilot facility allows brewers to collaborate on unique recipes and formulations in a shared environment. These brews made at Midtown are not bottled or widely distributed but offered in a tasting room setting only in downtown Bar Harbor.
A Climate to Thrive is an independent nonprofit organization that seeks to achieve energy independence for Mount Desert Island by 2030. Decentralized, local, renewable energy solutions will reduce pollution, create new businesses, generate year-round jobs that pay a living wage, and bring the community together around the shared goal of preserving our environment.
An entrance fee of $8 will be charged, but if you BYOV (bring your own drinking vessel) the cost is reduced to $5.
“Heart of Ellsworth promotes artistic, cultural, economic, educational, environmental and historical activities in the “downtown” area to promote a vibrant community for all.”
