ROCKLAND — Midcoast Maine based nonprofit Penobscot Bay Language School is celebrating spring with a traditional German Biergarten on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at 3 p.m.
This indoor/outdoor event will include beer and brats served on the patio and gardens of Penobscot Bay Language School as well as lawn games, music, food, and conversation – ability to speak German not required (but welcome), according to PBL, in a news release.
Guests must register online at www.penobscot.us/events/category/cultural-events/. The $15 admission fee includes 2 brats and a beer. Registered guests can also order a la carte if they want to sample more beer or brats during the event.
The Biergarten will open at 3 p.m., on the back patio and gardens of Penobscot Bay Language School, in Rockland.
“Many Maine communities were settled by Germans beginning in the 1740s,” said PBL. “As such, German cultural permeates our local and state cultures, with town names like Dresden in Western Maine, and Midcoast communities like Bremen, Hanover and of course Waldoboro–home to the Old German Meeting House, an historic German Lutheran church and cemetery – it is clear that German immigrants had a lot to do with making Midcoast Maine what it is today! Join PBLS staff, volunteers and community members for this wonderful celebration of local cultural heritage.”
Founded in 1986 as a non-profit language school and center for cultural exchange, Penobscot Bay Language School has served over 6,000 locals and over 500 international students of all ages through language classes and cultural programming. Over three decades later we continue to promote our mission: To develop and provide opportunities for the people of Midcoast Maine and around the World to explore our shared experience on Earth through the study and celebration of language and culture.
