Mason's Brewing Company has set up shop along the waterfront on the Penobscot River and if all goes according the plan will be serving public in time for concert season..
"Fortunate enough to find a spot on the river that is directly across from the concert venue, to open up our brewery..it's a 6800 square foot facility.. its'a 20 barrel brew house.. Open if all goes according to plan. April 2016 probably the first week" said owner Chris Morley.
Crews working feverishly to hit their target opening.. In addition to brewing their own beers on site..
"This lot was vacant and so we had a clean slate and we designed the building around the brew house, because the craft beer.. Te beer was the focal point."
"Chris is a very excited guy. That's the best way to describe him, absolutely loves what he's doing.. This is a passion of his. He's been developing this plan for a number of years and so we are really happy to help him bring it to fruition" said Brewer's Economic Development Director D'Arcy Main-Boyington,
In addition to the outdoor seating for concert lovers, there will be tables inside along with a small kitchen. Another example of expansion on the Brewer waterfront. And the greater Bangor area.
"We're really excited that the waterfront is taking off as well as it is. We've been working toward this for a number of years. And over the last years we've had a lot of interest in the waterfront including mason's brewing, they've got a fantastic location down there and so we're all very excited about that" added Main-Boyington.
"Bring to Maine a craft beer destination and to have it showcased on the waterfront across from the concert stage made sense for this little adventure" said Morley.
