allagash-victor_aleThursday, May 26

It’s always a good party when the folks from Allagash Brewing Company uncork the new batch of Victor Ale, but toss in music by the horn-heavy Raging Brass Reggae and add food from Rosemont Market & Bakery and things fly right off the hook! The tasting and dancing start at 5 p.m. at St. Lawrence Arts (76 Congress St., Portland). Tix: $25 (21+). 347-7177. stlawrencearts.org.
