Under Construction: Yes Brewing

yesbrrewingA new brewery called Yes Brewing (facebook, instagram) is under development in Westbrook. Owner John Bigelow plans to start off using a “1 barrel wort/8barrel ferment system”.

The American Journal reports,

Yes Brewing, owned by John Bigelow of Portland, is looking to operate the new brewery at 609 Main St., Unit 2, which is behind Mister Bagel. City Planner Jennie Franceschi said the unit is roughly 2,400 square feet.

The Planning Board will host a public hearing on Tuesday, Oct. 4, and could vote to approve the project that night. If approved, it would mark the second new craft beer tasting room downtown since early 2015, when Mast Landing Brewing Co. opened at 920 Main St. Since that time, Mast Landing has become a popular destination in the city.
