Raising money to adopt & rehabilitate a rescue pit!

Round Turn Distilling Launches in Biddeford, Drip Bar Drops in Bridgton, More
Five sips of beverage buzz throughout Maine.
BIDDEFORD — Beer, pizza, now gin: the revitalized Pepperell Mill seems to have it all. Round Turn Distilling, run by Kennebunk nativeDarren Case and with design work by Might and Main, opened recently in the space directly adjacent to Banded Horn Brewing Company and across the hall from Portland Pie Company. Case buys in neutral grain spirits to redistill into Bimini Gin, which guests can sample neat or in two mixed drinks at the tasting room Fridays from 4 to 9 p.m. Status: Certified open. 32 Main Street, Building 13W, Suite 103, Biddeford, (207) 370-9446, website.
BIDDEFORD — Not far away, Tom Bull, former co-owner and head brewer of Portland's defunct all-lager producer Bull Jagger Brewing Company, is returning to the brewhouse. The Beer Babe has more on Bull and partner Mark Paulin’s Dirigo Brewing Company, which will “reside in the Riverdam Millyard.” The company hopes to release lagers (which are still a minority but increasingly common in craft beer) and ales by the end of 2015. Status: Give it time. Pearl Street, Biddeford, Facebook.
BRIDGTON — There’s a new coffee shop in town: drip bar is serving Tandem Coffee Roasters, according to an Instagram post from last week. The cafe opened July 4 and so far a single Facebook reviewer calls it a “terrific addition to Bridgton!” Status: Certified open. 260 Main Street, Bridgton, Facebook.

From the evidence of their quarter sessions records the
inhabitants of West Sussex seem to have been remarkably staid during most of
the 1650s. Those in Somerset were the
opposite. No one was going to stop them
wife-beating, buying gallons of beer at their revels, bull-baiting, sheep stealing or worrying or shooting at passing strangers. Many
of the complaints here seem to suggest anxieties about the presence in the area of
royalist sympathisers or former royalist soldiers. Exploits reported to quarter sessions include
an incident of grave robbery for scientific purposes, what looks like a Catholic priest coursing
the country with a trunk of sacramental equipment, and cases which are
euphemistically reported in Harbin’s early 20th century calendar
under the category of ‘incivility’, ‘audacious’ or ‘outrageous’ behaviour, which
clearly merited further investigation into the specifics of the charges (and,
as it turns out, to correct some of Harbin’s mistranscriptions). What Harbin terms a ‘gross outrage’ committed
on Mary Cooper of Oxley in August 1656, was to accept a contract for a year’s
service with a Mrs Davis only to find herself immediately ‘married’ off to her
… Daniell Davis told the said Bath that they had provided
a wife for him meaning the said Examinate and perswaded her … that shee should agree to be his wife, And
told the said Charles that he should have her before he did Lett her goe or
wished that the divell might take him … the said Daniell Davis his wife her
said Dame came behind her and thrust her onto him beinge past 12 a Clocke at
night soe then the said Charles and this Examinate went together where in the
Church porch of Andrews within the said Liberty he had Carnall knowledge of her
body … and that shee is now with Child …
The ‘audacious’ behaviour of John Harris of Huntspill included attempting
the chastity of every married woman he met, including one who was, as he boasted,
and [if] James Parman would not believe it he would and
presently did produce his Carnall Instrument on a table before him and many
Now that’s a term I’ve not come across before. Much more just as promising yet to look at.
