moxie !

The weekend after July 4th draws near, and that means Moxie Fest, the annual weekend of celebration in Lisbon Falls begins!  Moxie was invented here in Maine by Dr. Augustin Thompson in 1876- and refined later in 1884 as America’s oldest mass-marketed soft drink. Moxie is the official beverage of the State of Maine, and there’s more to learn about the spicy soda-pop right here in the Portland Room.

“The Moxie Mystique,” from the stacks of the Portland Room describes all things Moxie.
