By now you've heard the news, but it bears repeating: welcome Orono Brewing Company to Downtown Bangor! OBC is currently renovating the first floor retail space at 26 State Street for another tap room for samples and take-home growlers - and will be setting up a smaller brewing operation as well for experimental and test batches. AND the upper floors have been converted into must-see apartments featuring architectural elements from the former cigar factory that the building was once home to. Stay tuned...they are aiming for July! #heybangor #oronobrewingco #whyyeswearedownwithobc #beerme ... See MoreSee Less
