Fogtown is Ellsworth’s first working brewery. Our diverse tap list includes barrel-aged sours fermented with locally foraged berries, stouts brewed with organic Maine oats, refreshing lagers brewed with heritage Maine malts, and IPAs made with fresh, whole cone Maine-grown Cascade hops, and whatever else we can dream up.
The Cannery at South Penobscot presents contemporary experimental art with a focus on sound, music, performance, and the word. Our mission is to encourage exchanges with local communities and to explore the continua of the arts, sciences, crafts, philosophy, technology and earth practices. We welcome residencies! Whether for a few days or for several weeks, we can accommodate individuals or small groups with housing and work space and encourage that the stay culminate in a performance, or an installation, or a reading, or a presentation of some kind which we are always excited to host.

Kneisel Hall, in the coastal village of Blue Hill, Maine, is often called the “cradle of chamber music teaching in America”. The festival can trace its origins to 1902 when violinist Franz Kneisel, founder of the first professional string quartet in America, began bringing students to his vacation home in Blue Hill for summer study. It is a chamber music school, a ten-week concert series and chamber music advocate through many outreach programs. Check the website for repertoire and musicians.

The mission of Blue Hill Bach is to present historically informed performances, recordings, and educational programs that explore vocal and instrumental music of the Baroque, as well as repertoire that demonstrates the place of Baroque music within the span of music history. In addition to a week-long summer festival of concerts and educational events, Blue Hill Bach presents Handel’s Messiah each year, and celebrates J.S. Bach’s birthday with a concert each March.
