Bentley's Saloon Sightings!


Have you or have you seen someone spotted in another state or country wearing a Bentley's Saloon tee, sweatshirt, hat, leather or seen a sticker? Since 2011, we've been collecting these photos and posting them in our photo gallery and highlighting one weekly in our newsletter. Our gallery contains more than 1,200 pictures! Bentley bought the front bar in 2004 and never dreamed it would turn into a destination place! The best is hearing the friendships developed when people meet each other for the first time when they spot someone else wearing a Bentley's tee! We appreciate the support! "Who has more fun than us? .... We do

   Crusin Night Car Shows!

Bentley's hosts Cruisin' Night Tuesday Car Shows and a few special interest shows throughout the season.

Often times there are more than 100 cars on display! There are no entry fees for car show owners or spectators. Car show owners receive door prizes, spectator choice awards and a chance to win a FREE toolbox valued at $1,000.  We offer cash raffles for everyone to play and donate a portion of the money to our Town of Arundel's Holiday Program for local residents in need of a helping hand during the holiday season.




Our season end car show on Sunday was quite amazing! The predicted weather forecast was not in our favor but it turned out to be perfect for the show! We had 250 special interest vehicles on display, lots of spectators and so many feel-good stories shared.
Who won the toolbox donated by Sanel NAPA Biddeford Store and Gear Wrench?  Dan Douville from New Hampshire!  He shared a story that his winning green tix ended in the number 73, which is his race car number!!
Are you all familiar with Bentley's backwards truck? Well, the man who built the truck, Gary Eastman, was at the show and was thrilled to meet Bentley.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone who participates with the cash raffles because with their participation the portion we are able to donate to our Town of Arundel for the Holiday Program for the less fortunate is $2000.00!!

Sam Adams Stein hoisting Challenge

October 6th



Since 2014, it's been tradition for us and the Boston Beer Company to pair up on Columbus Day Weekend and host a Stein Hoisting Challenge.  What is this challenge?  Boston Beer brings glass steins and fills them up with Boston beer and the contestants (women & men) hold the steins with their arms straight out for as long as they possibly can. This year’s Boston Beer judge was not as tough as other judges in the past.  We saw a few new record breakers, and these guys were highly competitive and became friends while hoisting!   Whitey 11 minutes 56 seconds, and Rob Deroscia 10 minutes 43 secconds.  Lisa Warren, Bentley’s daughter, remains the women’s record holder with a time of 5 minutes and 36 seconds this year.  Last year her time was 5 minutes 7 seconds.


Here's a list of past record holders.


2014 –Joe 6 mins 8 seconds- Bentley was 6 mins 1 second – first year of competition we did not have a separate women’s competition

2015 – Jeff 6 mins 13 seconds, Amazon 3 mins 23 seconds

2016 – jeff 4 mins 53 seconds, Lisa (Bentley’s daughter) 4 mins 40 seconds

2017 – Bentley 6 mins 8 seconds, Lisa (Bentley’s daughter) 4 mins  33 seconds. This year we started only doing one round.  In other words, the contestant’s highest time remained, they did not have to compete again.  It was hard to go for other rounds.

2018 – Emilio 6 mins 19 seconds, Lisa (Bentley’s daughter) 5 mins 9 seconds

2019 – Tracy 4 mins, Roger 5 mins 2 seconds

2020 (pandemic year) – Frenchie 10 mins 16 secs.  Bartender Lala 4 mins 19 seconds. This year due to the pandemic, Boston Beer did not come and we adjusted using our own glass steins (not as heavy).  We wore masks and social distanced.  87-year-old TOMKAT hoisted for  8 mins 57 seconds and could have gone longer, but he thought it was over!

2021 Mary 4 mins 38 seconds, Keith 5 mins 6 secs

2022 Lisa Warren 5 mins 7 seconds, Rob Deroscia farmer from NM 6 mins 2 seconds

2023 Whitey 11 mins 56 seconds,  Lisa Warren 6 mins 35 secs
