Saturday marks the anniversary of some pretty significant historical events. On July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. On the same day in 1988, Maine’s first brewpub was born.
Ed Stebbins and Richard Pfeffer opened the doors to the Portland location of Gritty McDuff’s and would serve their first house-brewed beer exactly five months later. Along with his crew and anyone who chooses to stop by, Stebbins, who is still brewmaster and owner of Gritty’s, as it’s locally known, will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the brewpub’s opening on Saturday. The party, which will last throughout the day, will take place where it all started – on Wharf Street – and will include live music, free food
