January Greendrinks at Portland's Ocean Gateway


Intermittent downpours did nothing to deter a solid crowd of Greendrinkers from attending the January event at Portland's Ocean Gateway

Perched at the end of the long pier on east Commercial Street, this modern building boasts 5600sq ft of unobstructed free space and a capacity of 799 heads.  Arriving early to wrench together the giant erector set that is the Maine Snapshot Studio, I was impressed with both the scale of the room and its sweeping views of Portland Harbor and the islands.  Waves of attendees arrived as forecasted, and soon the space was humming.  Consumers for Affordable Maine Health Care was the featured organization, a group advocating for access to affordable health care for all Maine residents.  Also fresh on the Greendrinks docket, Maine Beer Company joined the impressive roster of brewers pouring their goodness, an addition that clearly excited the droves of hop-heads in attendance.
