PD Wappler and Dante Maderal have leased Unit 6 at 200 Anderson Street where they will open Portland’s newest brewery, Hi-Fidelity Beer (website, facebook, instagram). Maderal and Wappler are planning to launch with a 3 barrel system and intend on focusing on low ABV beers. They plan to serve their own house beers as well as a variety of liquid refreshment with non-alcoholic options such as coffee, tea, and house-flavored seltzer.
The tagline for Hi-Fidelity is “our beer, your space”. They envision operating a tasting room that melds a traditional brewery tasting room and a public space that will appeal to the members of the Portland arts community.
Maderal was formerly a brewer at Atlantic Brewing in Bar Harbor, and Wappler is a musician. They hope to open Hi-Fidelity Beer by the end of this summer.
