Brews & Blue(Berries) in Maine

Maine, United States, North America: Bountiful harvest: Maine produces 99 percent of the wild blueberries in the United States.
Concierge.com's insider take:

We're not sure what it is about cities called Portland, but the name seems to inspire superior microbreweries. The Maine version has at least seven. Take a tour and taste free samples at Allagash (18 Industrial Way; 207-878-5385; www.allagash.com), Casco Bay (57 Industrial Way; 207-797-2020; www.cascobaybrewing.com), and Shipyard (86 Newbury St.; 207-761-0807; www.shipyard.com). To sample microbrews as they were meant to be sampled, try the handcrafted pints at Gritty McDuff's and Sebago Brewing Company (164 Middle St.: 207.775.2337; www.sebagobrewing.com), two brewpubs in the Old Port District that double as local hangouts.

Maine also produces 99 percent of all wild blueberries in the country. East of Bethel, the Wilton Blueberry Festival in August has blueberry pancake breakfasts, blueberry pop, and blueberry muffins—plus road races to burn it all off. For details, talk to the organizer, Shannon Smith (207-778-4726). And the Maine Wild Blueberry Festival takes place during August's Union Fair, one of Maine's oldest. Find it in the town of Union, off coastal Route 1 between Boothbay Harbor and Bar Harbor (207-785-3281; www.unionfair.org/Blueberry.cfm).
