If you're anywhere in the vicinity of a Sebago Brewing Company in Maine tonight (locations in Portland, Scarborough, Kennebunk, and Gorham), you'll want to swing by for the "Powder Keg," a winter kickoff party featuring raffle prizes, $1 drafts, and happy hour specials. Oh, and free skiing.
All attendees receive a free lift ticket to Saddleback Mountain, which plans on opening Dec. 16. There will also be a Saddleback two-night ski-and-stay package up for raffle, featuring three days of midweek skiing, as well as additional raffles at the Portland and Scarborough locations.
The events run from 4-8.
