The Sow's Ear Winery image
Brooksville, ME
(Range: < 1 mile)
The expression, “You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” was first recorded in 1518 in The Ecologues of Alexander Barclay. The saying expresses the idea that it is difficult to create something of great value out of an item that is considered to have little worth. Tom Hoey named his winery “Sow’s Ear Winery” and the success that he has acquired as a vinter certainly challenges Barclay’s assertion about the value of a “sow’s ear” in regard to this particular enterprise. (Curated content from www.uniquemainefarms.com)

The Atlantic Brewing Company image
(Range: 17 miles)
Atlantic Brewing is a family-owned brewery located in Bar Harbor and surrounded by Acadia National Park. The brewery was founded in downtown Bar Harbor inside the Lompoc Cafe. As demand grew, and the company outgrew its space, it moved down the road to an estate brewery built on the site of a 19th century Bar Harbor farmstead. The brewery hosts Mainely Meat BBQ and the grounds employ native vegetation and local stonework. (Curated content from www.atlanticbrewing.com)
