Had a great meeting with Ian McConnell yesterday about his plans to start a production brewery in the Portland area. Ian is the former head brewer for Sixpoint and left them in September of 2012 to move back to Maine. Since then he has been working on his business plan and the mountains of paperwork that come with starting a brewery.
Things are progressing and he hopes to be producing beer this Summer. Not a lot of info yet but keep checking back as I will post links to Facebook and Twitter accounts as soon as they are available. Website will be www.bandedhorn.com, logos and website are being created.
I know there are lots of breweries opening and/or in planning but I am really excited to see what Ian does with Banded Horn.
