Lewiston’s Brewed and Bottled Craft Beer Shop to Remain Open (For Now)

Brewed & Bottled Craft Beer Shop, Lewiston’s only craft beer bottle shop, will not close their doors on March 24 as had been originally announced. Owner Chris Budde announced a few weeks back that they had lost their lease and were being forced to vacate their current location at 402 Center Street. That is no longer the case, though no additional information was provided. “While we don’t have any hard details to share right now, we can safely say that we’re NOT closing on March 24th as originally announced,” Budde recently announced. You can find the latest news and updates, as well as B&B’s hours of operation, on their facebook page.
