The Portland Planning Board is reviewing a request for a zoning change on Washington Ave. If the proposal (page 883) gets approved it will pave the way for a new brewery, Newscapes Brewing (facebook, instagram) to be located at 163 Washington Ave. Owner Jeffrey Curran plans to have outdoor tables along with a limited amount of indoor seating and to serve a menu of pub food.
Update: The Portland Phoenix has published an update on Newscapes (January 17, 2021).
