Disappointment over Moosehead cancelling waterfront brewery

Plans are moving ahead on the proposed waterfront development project despite the loss of the Moosehead craft brewery. Moosehead decided setting up a small brewery on the waterfront with a brew pub was not financially feasible.

Kent MacIntyre, general manager of Saint John Waterfront Development Corporation, told the Telegraph-Journal the proposed brewery wasn’t really part of the proposed multi-million development but would have been adjacant to it and a benefit. MacIntyre isn’t saying much about the proposal because of a confidentiality agreement with the developer at the former Coast Guard site.
