There were some rumblings (here at BAB) and grumblings (elsewhere) a couple of weeks back about a new brewpub rumored to be opening in Saco, Maine. Well after today – thems ain’t rumors anymore, thanks to the Kennebec Journal. The paper reports that Geoff Houghton, the owner of the Liberal Cup in Hallowell, ME, will have his second brewery open by late spring. The paper reports,
The man who opened “The Liberal Cup Public House & Brewery” in Hallowell in November 2000 wants to expand his business to a second site to be known officially as “The Run of the Mill Public House & Brewery.”
The Run of the Mill Public House & Brewery will be the first commercial entity in Saco Island — a former factory site on the Saco River — near the city’s downtown, and will seat almost 200 people with an outdoor patio that overlooks the rapids in the Saco River.
If the will-be brewing set up looks at all familiar, that’s because the equipment formerly brewed beer for The Sugarloaf Brewing Company at the base of Sugarloaf ski resort in Carrabassett Valley.
