Brew on Washington Ave

Meagan Waldron has leased the first floor of 34 Washington Ave where she plans to open Brew  (instagram). The hybrid cafe/bar will serve coffee, beer, wine, baked goods and meat and cheese boards. Waldron envisions it as a neighborhood spot that offers simple, reliable and consistent food and drinks.

The 858 sq ft space is under construction (see floor plan below), and when it’s completed will seat 21 overall with an 8-seat bar. Waldron hopes to be ready to open by early September. When Brew does launch it will be open Thursday through Tuesday with extended evening hours Thursday through Saturday with beer and wine.

The city of Portland, especially the food service industry, captured my heart as soon as I moved here. I feel so fortunate to be a part of it. I am so eager to open Brew’s doors and share this space with you all.

Waldron has worked at LB Kitchen as well as at Terlingua. She grew up in Vermont and worked at her parents wood-fired pizzeria and other restaurants in Burlington prior to moving to Maine.

The final menu is still under development but watch for Brew to serve coffee from Crossroads Coffee in Rockland, and beers from Maine as well as from her home state.
