AMC is partnering with Allagash Brewing Company to offer a series of events that combine outdoor activities, beer tastings and food pairings with locally sourced ingredients, and a chance to experience AMC lodge life firsthand. Check out our upcoming events below.
AMC is partnering with Allagash Brewing Company, Spruce Mill Farm, and local favorite Instagram photographers Chris Shane and Cait Bourgault, to bring you a weekend of beer tasting, food pairings with locally sourced ingredients, and nature photography instruction. Hosted at our brand new Medawisla Lodge and Cabins, learn how to capture the best outdoor photos while enjoying delicious seasonal food and Allagash Brewing Company beers of the season.
Start your weekend with a 3 p.m. check in, followed by a complimentary Allagash beer tasting at 5 p.m. in the spectacular main lodge. Dinner will be served at 6pm, featuring a menu of locally sourced ingredients in partnerships with Spruce Mill Farm. Plan on heading early to bed to prepare for a sunrise photo shoot Saturday morning. Remember to fill out your order for your ready-made trail lunch Saturday!
Saturday - Sunrise/Sunset photography workshops
Meet 15 min. before sunrise at the lodge (we'll put coffee on!) for your first foray into nature photography. Chris and Cait will lead instruction on how best to frame the composition, capture the morning light, and offer tips using your digital camera, or even an iPhone. Return back to the main lodge for breakfast at 8 a.m. and enjoy the rest of the afternon to explore the area and put your new camera skills to good use! Or simply relax in our sauna, take a kayak, paddle board or canoe out for a spin, or kick back on the back deck.
At 5 p.m., gather at the lodge for food pairings with favorite Allagash beers, followed by a 4-course dinner at 6 p.m. After dinner, head out for a sunset photo shoot on the waterfront. End the evening sharing stories around the fire pit and feel free to check out our telescope for some night sky photos (with our telescope attachment.)
This morning, you can choose sleep in or opt to join AMC guides for a sunrise paddle. Meet for breakfast at 8 a.m. We'll be hosting a slideshow after breakfast featuring a compilation of your photos taken over the weekend. You're more than welcome to stay for the day and explore the area on your own. Feel free to use any of the complimentary canoes, paddleboards, or kayaks at the dock.
