This Sunday, the Peg Egan Concert Series kicks off in Egg Harbor. Hopefully, the sun will shine and it will be a warm evening to sit on the lawn and enjoy the music. Stop at Main Street Market on your way and take a picnic to the concert. Cheese and bread or crackers, sandwiches, WondeRoast chicken (reserve it in advance) – snacks or dinner!
Our wine cooler is stocked with many Stelvin closure wine bottles – screw caps to most of you! We also have a fully stocked beer cooler, soda and waters. Main Street Market is open until 8:00 – the concerts begin at 7:00.
Enjoy the show!
When is a beer more than a beer? When it’s a Samuel Adams UtopiasÂ® brew. Here’s whatÂ CaptainsBeerBlog has to say about UtopiasÂ®:
Sam Adams Utopias isnâ€™t really a beerâ€¦itâ€™s an experience.
Offered in extraordinarily limited quantities once every two years (there were only 53 barrels produced for this yearâ€™s version), Utopias is considered to be one of the tougherÂ beersÂ out there to get your hands on, and for good reason,Â taking into accountÂ the intensely laborious, time-consuming processÂ Boston Beer Co.â€™s brewers take to produce this innovative brew. In its fifth release, UtopiasÂ has traditionallyÂ contended with such beers as Dogfish Headâ€™s 120 Minute IPA as the most alcoholic beer on planet earth*, coming in at a mere 27% ABV. But the strength of the beer, while certainly unique and more reminiscent to what youâ€™d find in a fine liquer, is not all that setsÂ it apart in my mind.
Main Street Market is excited to announce that we have ONE container of this limited edition fine brew available for sale at our Egg Harbor store. Let me tempt you with some of the details:
Sweet fire, with a rich malt and wood complexity. â€¨Truly the epitome of brewing’s two thousand year evolution, Samuel Adams UtopiasÂ® offers a flavor not just unlike any other beer but unlike any other beverage in the world. The 2011 release is a blend of batches, some having been aged up to 16 years in the barrel room of our Boston Brewery, in a variety of woods. We aged a portion of the beer in hand-selected, single-use bourbon casks from the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. The latest batch also spent time in Portuguese muscatel finishing casks, as well as sherry, brandy and Cognac casks. This flavorful, slightly fruity brew has a sweet, malty flavor that is reminiscent of a deep, rich vintage port, fine cognac or aged sherry.

Please like Main Street Market on facebook! I swore I would never do this, but I just did – argh!
Now that we have this cool website, I guess the facebook thing was inevitable – but I have a warning for all my “friends”. I am really bad at this stuff.
My goal is to take pictures -Â new products, great looking produce, pretty party trays, etc. and post them. I am also going to take pictures of our staff and introduce you to them. They are trickling into Door County from all over the world – and close by.
For now – we had a busy Memorial Weekend and we are ready for summer. Hopefully, Mother Nature will cooperate – soon!
Remember – like Main Street Market.
