Date: Thursday Aug 25, 2016
Time: 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Atlantic Brewing will be hosting the folks from 59in59 (http://59in59.com/) to celebrate the completion of their trip to all of our nation’s national parks as they wrap things up here in Acadia! This is a very special event marking the end of Darius and Trevor’s 59-week National Park roadtrip, and the actual 100th anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service. The pair have been traveling since June 2015, blogging about their journey along the way.
From 5–7 p.m. we’ll serve light snacks from Mainely-Meat BBQ and tastes of our special edition CentenniALE, brewed especially for Acadia’s 100th birthday. The 59in59 crew will present a photo slideshow starting at 6 p.m. with photos from their whole trip. Friends of Acadia will offer a centennial-themed door prize drawing.
In June 2015, Darius and Trevor quit their jobs to embark on a 59-week, 59 National Park trip to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. They hopped into a Dodge 2500 truck and hit the road, on a journey to both explore the parks and share their experiences here on this site through blogs and photos, and also on various social media platforms (with the hashtag #59in59). They started in Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Ohio, and have been on the road ever since, on track to finish in Acadia by the NPS centennial on August 25.
