Industry Snapshot on Mason’s Brewing Co. with Chris Morley
To our fans and followers: Soon, we will roll out a digital campaign called #keepourspiritsupmaine
This is all about keeping upbeat and resilient during the economic downturn we’ve all faced during COVID-19 and what we’re doing as Mainers to stay happy, connected, and forward-thinking this fall. Stay tuned for a roll-out of blogs and videos featuring leaders in the brewing, distilling, and outdoor industries.
Despite the pandemic, Chris Morley, owner of Mason’s Brewing Co. in Brewer and his staff, have been going full steam ahead—staying on track with projects that were planned for 2020.
“At the end of the day there has to be a little pull, but not push, as the Maine economy is very fragile,” said Morley. “We are taking the steps necessary, following the new protocols and adapting while staying within our business’s means, to provide consumers with a good experience.”
Like many breweries, Mason’s has been in a constant state of expansion since opening its doors in 2016. In terms of structural improvements, they expanded their indoor seating capacity and utilized their outside decks to adapt to COVID-19’s social distancing mandate going into the colder months ahead.
Because they also have a restaurant license, they are able to have indoor guests. As it stands now, the spacious interior beer hall/restaurant seats 50 people, and the new function/dining room seats 35. As for outdoor seating, they have outfitted both decks with propane heaters and can accommodate up to 14 picnic tables.
You can take a virtual tour of their facility on their website masonsbrewingcompany.com/
Mason’s Brewing Co. is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. serving patrons draft beers, lunch, and dinner as well as offering curbside pick up and carhop for deliveries.
